POTD: The Colt SP-1 (1967)

    Colt SP-1

    Still life photography is a genre with a large gray area between fine art and documentary photography. In today’s Photo Of The Daywe’re taking a look at a piece of history with this Colt SP-1 from 1967.

    The classic @coltfirearms SP-1. This one was manufactured in 1967 and is an early derivative of the modern AR-15 and was also first issued by the US during the Vietnam War. Thanks to @bernieconatser762 for letting me shoot some his collection!

    This SP-1 seems to be in excellent condition.

    The quality of the photos as well as the firearms themselves are really worth a follow.
    What do you think of the photos and the Colt SP-1? Looks great, doesn’t it? Did you ever try one, or a similar rifle?
