I picked up an odd Colt factory item on Ebay this month for $19.99. My best guess is that the item is a commemorative paperweight for the rehabilitation of the M16 assembly line as stated. You can see more information here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/1979-m16-rifle-line-paperweight/
Well the old saying is “time flies when your having fun!” December 8th was the one-year anniversary of this side bar of my Colt collecting hobby. When I got the domain expiration email a couple of days ago, I was floored. I couldn’t believe a year had gone by already.
I wasn’t really sure where I was going with this website or what the best way was to build a site, but it has worked out ok so far. Unfortunately, between the Army and college, the year has been crazy at times and content has suffered. But, here we are still moving along. I have renewed the site for another year.
Thank you for being a member or just casually stopping by. This site will continue to grow and diversify in Colt AR content.
The Colt Sporter Leather Sling was provided as a factory accessory and was also sold separately. You can see a few more details and images here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-sporter-leather-sling-pn-ca10054/
In my ongoing search for Colt AR-15 accessory items that were sold individually, I found a Colt Sporter Cheekpiece that was sold on Gunbroker.com. It was basically new in the box. Unfortunately, I was not able to buy it.
I have added images and a little bit of additional information here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-sporter-cheekpiece-pn-ca10026/
I have finally posted a write-up on the Colt SCW stock set. About 11 of these rare stock sets were made available to the civilian collectors market through Arms Unlimited. You can read about the stock set and see many photos and a couple of videos here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/sub-compact-weapon-scw-stock/
I have uploaded 21 photos of the Colt M203 37mm grenade launcher. See the images and additional information at this link:
