Well, here we are at the end of 2021. Some of you may have already crossed into 2022. If so, Happy New Year! Its been a crazy year with some twists and turns. Some of us have lost loved ones and friends through this last year. Just remember every day is a gift.
Although I have been able to acquire some amazing Colt items in the last year, I don’t measure my success by the ‘stuff’. Overall, my relationships in the firearms community are the most valuable thing to me. Having ‘stuff’ doesn’t matter if you are going through the journey alone and not sharing it and learning with others.
My goals in 2022 are: 1) improve existing relationships and develop new ones. 2) improve my photography and and video abilities to make the sharing of Colt items and history the best that it can be. 3) improve the content quality (photo details, technical detail, etc.)
Sub-standard quality and presentation means I’m not learning and ultimately I’m wasting your time which I never intend to do.
So, here is a toast to better year in 2022! 🍺
Thank you for sharing part of your valuable time here in the group.
Man life has had me stupid busy the last couple of weeks and there hasn’t been much time for the Colt hobby. However, mail has been rolling in and three of the four accessories I needed to return my Colt LE901 police trade-in back to its service configuration have arrived. I still need to find the optic which has been out of production for some time.
For those of you who keep track of part markings, I was made aware of these CAGE code marked trigger guards today. These have been used on some 2018 model SOCOMs (original production) and some CR6920’s earlier this year.
If you have seen these CAGE code trigger guards on Colt models other than the CR6920, please let me know and provide a photo.
Here is a Christmas card given to a member of the sales staff in 2012. Dimensions are 9 inches wide by 3-7/8 inches tall.
The card features a limited-edition Colt LE6940 carbine. I have seen one of these carbines appear on the market in the last five years.
The inside says: “Happy Holidays! We sincerely thank you for your partnership and support of our rifle sales growth in 2012., and looking forward to continued success in 2013!” David Ridley- VP of Domestic Sales & Marketing Doug Campbell- Director of Domestic Sales
