Colt Goes Retro Clone (ish) With AR15A4 Availability

    I know this is not exactly breaking news, but when I saw Gary Hughes of Dead Air Armament post up the ‘In Stock’ notice for a Colt AR15A4 at Brownells, I was intrigued. Sure, other manufacturers have started making retro clone style M16/AR rifles. But when Colt talks, people listen.

    Is it the newest/lightest collapsible stock, MLOK laden Instagram-ready rifle? Nope, but if you are a fan of classic styling and no frills controls and ergonomics with a roll mark to fit, this rifle may be for you. I do take offense at the inclusion of a Magpul magazine – this gun screams for two 20 round Aluminum mags, just because.

    See below for specifications and availability.

    About Colt Rifles:

    Colt rifle customers want the genuine article. They know that the story of today’s Colt commercial and sporting rifles began with the Stoner AR-15® design that Colt transformed into a military-grade rifle — the Colt M16 automatic rifle. First deployed in the early days of the Vietnam War, the M16 followed in the footsteps of its Colt ancestors, establishing the quality, reliability and performance benchmarks by which all tactical military rifles have since been measured.

    Nearly half a century has elapsed since the United States Government first fielded the Colt M16. Since that time Colt has never surrendered its position as manufacturer of the world’s preeminent combat rifles. During the War on Terror that followed September 11, 2001, American troops have increasingly been outfitted with the Colt M4 carbine, successor to the Colt M16 and proud bearer of the American and Colt military tradition.

    Colt’s rifles are the only rifles available to sportsmen, hunters and other shooters that are manufactured in the Colt factory and based on the same military standards and specifications as the United States issue Colt M16 rifle and M4 carbine. Colt customers want the best, and none of Colt’s competitors can match the quality, reliability, accuracy and performance built into every Colt rifle.
