The American Rifleman Magazine arrived today

Recommended Posts

Haven't had time to digest it, but it will make for interesting reading tonight. 

 

Last page has an article on the second generation colt New Frontier that might interest some cowpolks.

Page 28 has a blurb about Colt Manufacturing has released 2,000 LE6920 Carbines

to the Commercial Market, and more will follow. I wonder how long they will last?

And will there be a price jump due to the latest gun grab?

Does Wayne have some calm reassuring words for us?

The only words I want to here from Wayne are I quit

Interesting. I believe they released them over a month ago. This after they said they would sell no more AR type long guns to the general public. 
 

Sometimes I think Colt is schizophrenic.

Pat, half of the population seems to be schizophrenic.

According to the article they stopped selling to the individual consumer market

a couple years back, due to lower priced competitor's models in play.

I guess they figure they can get their asking price in view of the current demand.

Most of the magazine is preaching doom and gloom if I don't send them money to fight the latest threat to my guns.   Good article about the Browning hipower.

You know, I’ll bet you’re right. I didn’t think of that. Thanks. :)

American Rifleman is the only gun mag I still get. I enjoy the collector pieces and was entertained by the New Frontier article. The rest of it was pretty typical. Just because they're repetitive (doom & gloom, send us money or else, most important election ever, send more money now) doesn't mean they're wrong.

A few issues ago Wayne said and I quote, “It’s time to fight.”

 

Really? Ya think?

 

Geez.

Didn't Colt also just lose their military contract? 

 

My favorite part of the american rifleman is the stories they're doing on the men and weapons of war.

I switch off every couple of years between American Rifleman and Shooting Illustrated from the NRA.

Mine too, Ramblin. I am a history junkie. I grew up during WWII

and just about everybody in my family was in uniform at one time or another. 

Even 2  of my Aunts were Rosie the Riveter. They were working in factories in Chicago. 

My Mother and I went to stay with one of them when my Dad was stationed at Ft. Sheridan. 

 

I believe the article mentioned the lost contract as a reason, along with the  the absence of

black rifles on the shelves. Made sense to me. I thought it was a sound decision. But then again

Colt didn't call me for my opinion. :unsure:

My dad used to think our mail carrier was some sort of uppity baptists based on his magazines that mysteriously never arrived. 

 

Then the magazines started showing up really late without the plastic cover and he formed another theory.  Someone thought he wouldn't notice.  But he did.
