I have published my article about the Colt Multi-Caliber Assault Rifle India evaluation program. You can read it at this link: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-india-mcar-program/
Month: February 2020
I added 5 images from the Colt 2009 catalog to the site today. The images are the front cover, inside the front cover, two pages of AR content and the back cover. You can see all of the images here:
I added six images of the Colt 1966 handgun, rifle and shotgun catalog to the website tonight. There is also two images that show the front and back of the single page price list. You can see all of the images here:
I found these images in a Gun Broker auction. This is apparently a commercial version of the M7 bayonet that was licensed by Colt. There seems to be little to no information available. I found reference to what I believe was a product number of CT602. So, my search begins for one of these to add to the collection.
Some of you may recall the previous FBI specification rifles that made it onto the civilian market as the LE6920-FBP1. There is now an updated specification rifle that has come onto the market with the SKU LE6920-FBP2. The rifle is available from Arms Unlimited.
Description and two images below are from the Arms Unlimited website and validated through Colt.

I bought this off of Ebay thinking it was potentially some obscure Colt publication…nope.
It is a conglomeration of military TM data reprinted in a 5.5″x8.5″ format and published by Desert Publications. It IS NOT a Colt product.
