Colt has officially bowed away from producing long guns for the civilian market.
Colt senior VP Paul Spitale “We’re going to focus on the products that our consumers are asking for. We’ve expanded our 1911s and our revolver line, and that market has been very positive for us.”
Buh bye Colt.

Colt Firearms has reportedly decided to cease AR-15 production for the civilian market.
This will mark the end to some of the most iconic AR-15s ever, as Colts were a go-to AR for consumers as America’s love for the modern sporting rifle emerged in the late 20th century.
Guns.com reports Colt senior VP Paul Spitale indicated the company is shifting away from ARs and toward the class 1911, Colt revolvers, and other guns Americans want for concealed carry. More
Colt’s AR is too expensive for what you get. You pay for the name. Besides the company has been on brink of bankruptcy for a few years and they probably think this will be good PR for them.
Twitter had a few thoughts:

I’m surprised to read this.
My impression is there is a strong consumer market for these types of guns.
I understand conceal carry is becoming more common, but I also see the social media posts about the need for AR-15s.

Shame on them. Their ignorance will cost them a fortune and boost manufacturers like:
AND OTHERS who manufacture them. That news should spark a buying spree. I think I’ll get another one or two.

Colt will not get anymore civilian business anymore. Not mine anyway.

This is how it begins. They need to not bow down to the demonrats in Congress. The 2nd Amendment is a right not a privilege.

Many better AR type manufacturers anyway. It seems like smaller companies are making better weapons as well.
