I have a colt AR15 and my serial numbers are stright as they could be, coudn't be happier with my rifle. Glad I got it before MD laws changed. I would love to take a tour too or even be able to buy a special edition colt I cant find them anywhere.

1st, to the guy who thinks that for half a century colt cannot put a straight serial number on, call up Colt and complain, it has no standing on here. 2nd, to the guy who bought the .45 Colt Rossi, Colt does not make lever action rifles...wow.

What? Colt has not moved its manufacturing out of CT yet? What is Colt waiting for; the CT Governor to lead a demolition of the factory himself? SC is waiting with open arms (pun intended). Come on down!

This might be a dumb question but does colt ever have public tours of the facility.

I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the machine or person that does the serial number stampings on Colt's AR15s. Since the introduction of the SP1 in the early 60s until this day in 2013, Colt still has not figured out a way to stamp a serial number on straight!!!!!! Serial numbers on Colt's modern AR15 rifles serial number stampings look like a snake or a roller coaster and it's plain ridiculous! The devil is in the details and there is NO excuse for this. Hey Colt.....why don't you call your competitors, literally, any one of them.....since every one but you can stamp a serial number on a rifle in a straight line!
