Pricing for the new Colt SP901 Modular Convertible Carbine has been reported in forums. The MSRP will be $2,129.00, which is not a bad price for a high-end .308 AR-style carbine. The SP901′s distinguishing feature is that it’s fully ambidextrous lower receiver can be used with standard AR-15 mil-spec upper relievers.
The naming of this rifle is confusing. Stamped on the rifle is “Colt Convertible Carbine”, but the marketing folk have been referring to it as the “Colt Modular Carbine”.
