Amazing Colt CSASS and SP6920 Collector Pieces Available on Gun Broker

The following unicorns are available on Gunbroker for those of you with deep pockets. Sadly, I don’t have the necessary depth to compete.

First up is a Colt 901 CSASS prototype. Only a few of these exist in the U.S.

Next is the first and second serial numbers produced of the SP6920/M4 Carbine Sporter. Serials SP500,000 and SP500,001

And an original Colt USMC marked M45A1 CQBP model 1911.

Get on over there and make your bid!

Happy New Year!

Well, here we are four days into January of 2023. Christmas and New Year’s blew by in a blur. I look back on 2022 and get excited about some content that I was able to add and then get disappointed about all of the content that I didn’t get added. 2022 wasn’t a bad year for me but within it, I had Covid and four job changes. I currently still work two of the four jobs. I have big purchasing dreams for 2023 but you have to have the big bank account to go with it so that is why I have two jobs. Lol.

On a serious note, this year should be a good year for both the website and for Colt. I’m excited to see some new products come to market even if it just ends up being the CR6920 in a new caliber, or an old caliber released in a new model…such as the M5 carbine. There is rumor of a new Colt catalog being published for SHOT Show. If I am able to get a copy, I will scan it and post it here for you guys.

Speaking of scans, a page member sent me some scanned images of some rare documents that he was able to add to his collection. I have a few of the documents in my collection but haven’t scanned them yet. So, I’m going to ask him for permission to post some of his excellent images here.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season, or at least the best that it could be. I know this time of year is a hard time for some. I for one am happy to see things returning to ‘normal’. My grand plans for 2023 are pretty simple…to add content to the website and expand my collection some more. I wish us all health, prosperity and some luck in the coming months! Talk to you again in the next week or so!
