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...

Colt should have skipped all the ARFCOM crap and introduced the "Legacy Line";
Retro Commando SBR
Then the "Battle Line";
*with a SOCOM package for each available from the Custom Shop.
*with a Mk18 package available from the Custom Shop.
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
