    • “Hunting” you say….. but in all seriousness the AICS magazine capability paired with sub moa would be nice so long as the shape otherwise agrees with the shooter.

        • I can imagine, odd question but did anyone ever crank out a magazine fed lever rifle or did such a thing get hit by the ban hammer?

    • A little over ten years back I owned a Colt M2012L that was a Cooper hybrid and shot really nice out of the box, right up until it got stolen out of my jeep. I wonder who IS subcontracting the recievers for these.

      • Given that Colt is owned by a company known for its rifles, why would they farm out the receivers to the competition?

        • CZ Group has owned Colt for only a couple of years since acquiring them out of bankruptcy, and CZ has worldwide sub suppliers – their shotguns for instance are built by both Czech and Turkish subcontractors and nearly all pistols are imported. In recent years there have been complaints about cheapening some of their rifle line.It may be called CZ USA, but I don’t believe anything is actually made in KC or Little Rock other than the P-10s and sporadic Scorpion production. Not real sure if Colt Canada which built AR based products still exists. Maybe someone more familiar with them will chime in.

        • Hey Peanut Butter,
          Pretty sure the Colt revolvers are made in the new Arkansas plant, maybe 1911 assembly also. As far as the MSRs go, I have a rellie that works at the Diamondco (sp?) / Colt Canada plant that I’m sure that CZ at least runs if not owns. They don’t really manufacture rifles as finish machine forgings and parts from separate suppliers and assemble to various specs. I asked if he could build something unique ” one piece at a time” ala Johnny Cash, but they practically get strip searched on the way out of the plant. Drats.

  1. “Tac” (tactical) this, “Tac” (tactical) that, I tired of this “Tac” crap.

      • By “they” you surely mean “mall ninjas” I mean they’re the only demographic this model is intended for …. someone’s gotta take that 200+ yard shot from the escalators at the center of the mall down the east wing to the entrance of JC Pennys.

    • Forget if it was Mossberg or Ruger but one made a scout rifle that took standard AR magazines. Don’t think it managed sob moa and the feed system was not exactly standard. AICS magazines can be irritating to pay for but the Magpul version works well and is fairly readily available.

  2. Nice piece for hunting and off-season shooting. And so is the Remingtion Police .308 which would be my choice.
