Colt might be the company buying LWRC for 60 million. Well that could be good and bad.


Damnit, and I was looking to get an LWRCi M6-IC SPR this summer.

Colt could very well buy and collapse rather than absorb. Colt has a competing piston system with LWRC. Like you said, this could be good and bad.

Colt buying LWRC could boost the LWRC platform if it is adopted, however if they just shut it down a very good weapon system would be lost.


It sucks. I like Colt products, but they don't make an AR I would buy. I don't want to buy a gun just to strip it and use all new parts in it. I'd rather buy what I want outright.

what about sig?

I know FN is finally producing commercial ARs. Right now all they have is a carbine and a rifle, but they've said they will be expanding the line. If they make a mid-length gas system carbine with a 16" medium profile barrel I'm all over it.

Sig makes great products and their 556 is legendary. That being said, I wouldn't buy their ARs.


They are a relatively new producer of AR platform weapons, so they could have kinks, but more to the point they are priced with other competing companies and don't offer more.

Sig's Magpul furnished M400 is about $1150.
Colt's Magpul furnished 6920 is about $1250.


An extra $100 and you get a Colt? And anyone would tell you, "A Colt is a Colt and a Sig is not."

And I'm with them. For the same price (thereabout) I'd rather have one made by a company that has been producing weapons for the military since the military existed (thereabout).

Same with Smith-Wesson. They make good ARs and are priced right in between the Sig and the Colt, but why go with them when you can just get the Colt?


But then a lot more people will tell you to spend an extra $250 or so and get an AR from a premier AR company like Daniel Defense or Bravo Company Machine...

My two cents, I wouldn't get anything less than the Colt, but I'd rather get something better than a Colt like a DD, Noveske, LaRue, LMT, BCM...
I really want a piston gun instead of a DI gun and for that I really like LWRCi, Barrett, and PWS.

FN kind of breaks the mold. FN isn't Colt, but FN has been making ARs for the military for nearly as long. FN is kind of on the same ground as Colt, and for the same price about. I'd take an FN...

look,i don't know anything about what you're talking as i don't know anything about how guns work in real life,i just know that the sig makes good guns and that their rifles are simply beautiful and actually liked by some in symthic as well.

Don't have to know anything about rifles, I'm just saying that the Sigs are good but for the price you can get better, and if you are paying the money why get any less? But more so, most ARs are just copies of Colts, so why get a knockoff for the same price as the real deal?


Would I get a Sig 556 in real life? Yes. Would I get a Sig AR? Nope.

How much is an HK MR 223 in the US? I got the price from my local dealer, but it's in and he doesn't have Colt in his sortiment so I can't compare them.
btw SIG M400 is 1399 here

well, I think I'm done using the DAO-12. As awesome as it is, this is just too perfect. I didn't even mean for it to end up like that, it just... HAPPENED...


On another note, I really hope I didn't fry another alternator on my car... I hit a pothole today on my way to college. Wasn't very deep, but it was enough for a wake-up call. Car started some really bad squealing (like more than it usually does because of its shitty belts), and right as I got on campus it went into battery-only mode. So, I parked, turned it off then back on again, and the light stayed out. Then I noticed that there was smoke coming from the engine compartment, so popped the hood and there was some smoke. Could've been steam from all the melted water, but there was the distinct smell of burning electronics.

I swear, if I get a chance to get a Honda Civic or a Toyota, I will jump on it like no one's business. This would be the second alternator that I've fried in as many years. Fucking Hyundai...

Also, found this little gem on Facebook:



Brilliant.

Well, thanks, but that was not what I was asking for. Read first sentence again.
I can use a converter myself, the price was just for comparison with the US price. Well, now it's more obvious.

DAMN!

A basic Sig M400 here is just over $1000, not $2000!

For $2000, you can get Barrett's REC7 AR-15!

Colt's base 6920 is $1150.


HK MR556 is $3300. What a lot of shit, for that money you don't even get a chrome lined barrel! They don't even give you any extras like a soft case or bonus magazines.
Barrett at least gives you a really badass carrying case with cargo pouches and stuff and, like, 3 mags, and they are over $1000 cheaper!

Brought the cat home tonight. Let him out of the carrier right in front of the litter box so he knew where it was then left him alone. He wouldn't come out of the bathroom, though. So I went in there and handled him, and when he was all content I picked him up and let him go on the living room floor. Started exploring. I saw him enter my room, and I went in after him, but I didn't see him.
When I didn't see him leave the room I started looking for him and couldn't find him. Not under my bed or in my drumset or behind my desk. I don't know where he is.
It's kind of disconcerting... He's pretty sneaky for a big cat.

Here ya go.

I love Colt, but I agree about what you said. IF this is true, they might just drag them under. I hope not, but competition is competition. Being able to control a competitor is great power in the market. Owning them, is something else completely.


I also wonder what the freedom group will do about this (if they even care or if it isn't true).


And I totally should have bought 'Book of the AR 15" magazine all about Daniel Defense today. Hindsight.
