Colt Reviews: What Gun Owners Say about Colt

By    |   Monday, 20 April 2015 03:42 PM

In its 200-year history, Colt Manufacturing has designed, produced, and sold over 30 million handguns, rifles and other firearms. An article on history.com recounts how the company created the famous Colt .45, or Peacemaker, which was the customary handgun of U.S. military from 1873-1892, and the infamous AR-15, the rifle at the center of many gun control debates.

Colt produces firearms for military, law enforcement, and consumer use, and has become one of the best-known gun manufacturers in the U.S. Its customers stand by the products.

Here are a few things gun owners say about Colt:

● “The New Agent is a niche piece. It’s not something you’d bring to the range for precision practice, but it’s mighty fun to shoot. It’s a purpose-built concealed carry handgun that shoots a big slow projectile with a proven history as a man-stopper,” said James Grant about the Colt New Agent on TheTruthAboutGuns.com.

● In a review of the Colt 6920 Carbine on TheFirearmBlog.com, Nathaniel F. wrote, “Whatever doubts I once had about the rifle’s design, or Colt’s ability to make a great product are well and truly gone. That the 6920 is industry standard for civilian market self-loading carbines is no mystery to me.”

● “Colt: there is no substitute!” wrote Jimmy, a member of 1911forum.com.

● Robb Manning, when discussing his AR-15 on GunDigest.com, said, “It’s been a really long time since I’ve fired a full-size AR, and let me tell you, it just felt right. It brought back a lot of memories, and more importantly it reminded me that if tight quarters aren’t an issue, the full-sized rifle is a superior weapon.”

● “The CRP-18 is the thoroughbred that should be in every shooter’s stable, just waiting for the next chance to saddle up and ride to the top of the leader board,” said Guns and Ammo about the Colt rifle.

● “The Colt M2012 is a gentleman’s tactical rifle. You probably didn’t realize that was an official class of firearm. Well, neither did I until I shot the Colt and made it up,” said John B. Snow of Outdoor Life.

● “Arguably the finest revolver ever made,” said Richard Fairburn, a law enforcement officer and Colt enthusiast, in an article on PoliceOne.com about the Colt Python.
