The Colt “AR-15 Military Classics” Series Will Continue!!

We have learned that the Colt “AR-15 Military Classics” series will continue past the current M16A1 and XM177E2 rifles that are currently offered at retail. The only information that we have learned so far is that one of the next rifles will be a Colt Model 02 (commonly known as the 602). We have added a section to the site for the Colt Model 02 and will update it as information is received. The graphic below was created by us to share what little we currently know.

Colt 1″ Scope Ring Find

I went in my local gun shop today. They had a second variation of the ‘Colt’ 1-inch scope ring mount in stock. The first variation that I had seen and purchased previously was marketed under the Colt Competition line as part # 1401. The variation that I found today was also part # 1401 but it was marketed as a ‘Colt’ product and not ‘Colt Competition’. Both items are rebranded Warne scope mounts.

Although I am glad that I have added the packaging variation to my collection, I was a bit disappointed with the quality/effort that went into the product. My primary complaint is the scope mount instructions which are a lopsided photocopy that is also a misshaped cutout. The scope mount was $70…I would expect something of better quality and professional presentation like the Colt Competition product that I show in the photos above.
