I have expanded ‘thecoltar15resource’ to MeWe which is an alternative to the censorship of Facebook and Instagram. I really like what I see there so far. A bit over a million members but I anticipate it will continue to grow.
We are currently here on the internet, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and now MeWe.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I discovered this uncommon variation of the Colt Expanse CE2000 line in a local Arms List advertisement.
It came from the factory in FDE cerakote, Magpul stock, grip and sights. Heavy barrel with Smith Enterprises vortex flash hider. I contacted the seller but unfortunately the rifle had sold. I asked if he had any additional photos but he did not.
Mail call today was an old single page advertisement out of ‘American Hunter’ magazine. Unfortunately, I do not know what year it was published. The ad references “18 years ago” so I will dig into it a bit deeper at a later date.
I added a section to the website documenting six Colt roll dies that sold on Ebay on 13 May 2020. Roll dies are not seen on the market too often. You can see a summary of the roll die sale here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/roll-dies/
There are sub-albums with detailed photos of all six roll dies that were sold.
