A follower on the Instagram page asked for an explanation of the item being carried in the Rampant Colt’s mouth and on it’s legs. So, I put together a post about it. The images I am posting here were taken by me in 2019 and are the ‘Rampant Colt’ from the early Colt plant in Hartford, CT. It is on display in the Connecticut State Library Colt firearms collection.
As has been mentioned here before, and on my Instagram and Facebook page, I have been working towards putting together a Colt SCAR-B clone.
I got lucky and was able to buy a rail and run down the rest of the parts to complete a respectable project. Here is a photo of the parts layout.
In my SCAR-B page here, I have given a very brief run down of the program and listed parts. I am now going to talk about each of the parts going into the project and working on the lower receiver while the upper receiver parts are away being assembled. My plan is to post every one to three days on the project page here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-scar-b-clone-project/
