    New member with new old Colt

    I picked up a Sporter Lightweight today. It's my first old Colt. Here is some pictures with my Colt M4





    What do you all think?

    Congrats on your new "old" Colt. May it be just the first of many.

    Hard for me to reconcile the words "SPORTER" with "OLD COLT", I'm getting old.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Thanks. Aren't these from the 90s? I was in the military then. Always wanted one. Seen this one cheep so bought it. I hear people don't like these but also read and been told they are some of the most accurate and reliable Colts made. It's a lot lighter than my Socom M4. I'll have to try it out.

    Thanks

    These are from the early 1990s (circa '90-'94). To me, any pre-ban Colt is well worth owning. I have four pre-ban Colts myself.

    1981 Colt SP1 Carbine


    1986 Colt AR-15 A2

    I love your collection of preban Colts. I hope to
    Grow mine. Hard to find one original not messed with.
    Thanks for showing. Love the Sp1s.

    Renegade04, I don't want one with a sear block in it. But I love my 76' SP1 I bought in 76'.

    I know what you mean. I am not too crazy about sear blocks either, but sometimes if you want that certain model, it is just something you have to accept.

    Lol that's good I'll take em with the sear block. Keeps them cheap but will shoot as well as one without. Friend told me the best shooting Colt AR were made during the ban. Said the shoot better without the flashider and you can get them cheap because no one wants them.
