Part Two: After reviewing the Colt M4 Advanced Law Enforcement Carbine, I gave Colt a credit card number instead of returning the test rifle
As I said in my column yesterday on the 1911 “Rail” Gun, I do not own stock in Colt Manufacturing, nor is the company paying me to write this review. However, I plead guilty to being a life-long admirer of all things Colt. Amazingly, in just one generation, Colt’s contribution to two military and police success stories has almost faded from police officer’s memories, the 1911-pattern .45 semi-auto pistol and the AR15/M16 series of rifles. When I started in Law Enforcement, if you wanted a .45 or an AR15, it would be a Colt — nobody else made them. Nowadays, Colt is almost the last brand name many police officers think of for these weapon platforms, but Colt wants to change that.
A few months ago I received an email from Colt’s marketing representatives asking if I would be willing to review some Colt products to help them re-establish their standing in the LE marketplace.
Would I? Hell, Yes! Colt has gone through several boom and bust cycles in their marketing and business enterprises, but the quality of their production has never faltered. Most gunsmiths will tell you a Colt AR rifle or 1911 pistol is still the standard by which all other brands are judged.
