    The Colt 901 I saw the other day had Colt branded Troy sights.
    Yup, just like Noveske, Larue, and BCM.

    I can't understand what's wrong with offering just the Colt 6933, and a A2 carry handle version of the same gun. Both factory SBRs. Screw the stupid flash moderator thing. Reintroduce the CAR/N-1 stock.

    The A4 looks good. M4 feedramps don't really make a difference. However they should give the option to throw a KAC 12'' RAS on it.

    I like some of the anodized camos.

    Overall... Not bad... Not great either. I like the carry handle SBR from factory.

    Ideally though they'd offer a commando with no magazine fense, no brass deflector, no bolt assist, A1 sights, carbine handguards, and CAR stock. That'd be so bad-****in'-ass...

    It's like ARFcom took over the decision making at Colt.
    While this is true it is good marketing on their part. They are now making products that the average gun stupid joe will buy, while still making those really good items that the gun savvy joe will buy.

    Colt should have skipped all the ARFCOM crap and introduced the "Legacy Line";

    SP1
    SP1 Carbine
    AR15A2
    Retro Commando SBR

    Then the "Battle Line";

    6920
    6921
    *with a SOCOM package for each available from the Custom Shop.
    6933
    *with a Mk18 package available from the Custom Shop.
    6720
    6520
    6940
    6940P
    AR15A4

    Forget all the Magpul extras, Rogers stocks, etc. if people want that, they can purchase it aftermarket. Simplify the line and keep it simple and maintain Colt's reputation of being a simple rifle for serious tasks.

    It's probably cheaper and easier to make magpul and Rogers parts oem, knowing get the purists will buy the CAR, sp1 etc and replace the tactical stuff with harder to find originals or repro stocks, grips, etc.

    Love the Retro Carbine, but I would rather see the fixed stock come with it
