If you could marry a competition rifle with a military rifle Ė the CSR-1516 would probably be its offspring! Introducing the CSR-1516. A sporting rifle that your friends are going to drool over (cleanup cloth optional).
This rifle has all the features and appointments that a competition rifle hasÖ only itís a sporting rifle. Really? You bet! How about a 13 slot Picatinny Rail on a slick side flat top receiver, or an integrally-forged enlarged trigger guard. Donít forget other high-end features like a Nickel-Teflon coated Colt match-Target trigger, or 16Ē 4140 Chrome-Moly steel air-gaged match-quality barrel and even a low profile gas block. And we didnít forget that people donít come ďone size fits allĒ. Which is why we made sure that this little Colt has a six-position adjustable carbine stock in an improved M4 style. It may look like a cross between a military and competitive rifle, but we assure you Ė itís a sporting rifle!
Itís time to get serious about your rifles.
Hand built in the United States.

make it even hotter with my palmetto state armory post

Wow, a genuine Colt for under $700 brand new! Looks like it might be a bit more accurate than the S&W versions in the same price range.

I'm not sure this is made in a Colt factory, I think it's licensed to another company for Colt? Never the less is a very hot deal.

I'm glad I sold my doublestar (with lots of ammo and a few accessories) for $1400 just barely over 13 months ago! I figured prices would come back down, but I don't know if I've EVER seen a Colt this low.

I have no first-hand experience to say if this is a good or bad rifle, but if you want a Colt AR-15 for the sake of having a Colt AR-15 - this is a licensed Colt product using some Colt parts but not a "real" Colt like a 6920 or similar.

It's not a traditional Colt lower, 1:8 twist non-chrome lined barrel, no buis, no mag, no forward assist or dust cover on the unique (not standard) upper.† Just my .02 - but I'd suggest if you want a value rifle you just go ahead and build up a PSA Premium midlength with the midwest rail for ~$650 or a base handguard model for ~$550.†

Or if you want a real Colt - get in on one of the various sub $900 6920 deals that are floating around out there that include buis ($100) and a legit Colt upper, lower, and barrel.† Though I openly admit a oem railed Colt or adding a rail will push you into the $1,100 range.

Lots of people put value in that Colt name, and Colt realizes that.† That's why you can get cheap Colt plastic AR accessories, Colt-branded Russian steel case ammunition, and Colt-branded entry level AR-15's.† There's nothing wrong with that but know what you are buying.
