    No matter how asinine the configuration may seem, it wouldn't be very much money to put a low profile gas block ($25), Midwest Industries Gen 2 SS 12" Free Float Handguard ($179) and a set of Daniel Defense fixed sights ($115). There is no such thing as a Colt M400, so I am curious as to what Colt it is that you available to you. As long as it has the barrel marked C 1:7 5.56 HPT MPI then it's good to go. Colt bolts are also superior

    Sigs and Colts are the same thing right?

      I wasn't knocking Sig, more that it was labeled Colt m400. I have no experience with Sig rifles, so I don't lean one way or the other. I have a 6920, and probably will for a loooooong time.

              Colt makes nice ARs, but so do all the other manufacturers with decent quality control (which has gone up across the board). I've had good luck with Colt, S&W, and Del-Ton. Friends of mine have vouched for Daniel Defense, Bushmaster, LWRC, BCM, Spikes Tactical, LMT, CMMG, Alexander Arms, Noveske, Palmetto State Armory, and Core 15. A friend of mine did have issues with an older DPMS.

              If it's made out of metal, has a forward assist, the gas key\bolt are properly staked, and the headspacing is correctly set, you can pretty much assume that it will send thousands of rounds into a 4" group at 200 yards as fast as you can do your part. Some are more refined and specialized than others, but almost all of them are exceedingly capable.

              Eugene Stoner designed a heck of rifle.

                I bought a S&W Sport and after some months I thought it might be nice to get the dust cover, So I got a SOTA stripped upper installed and kept the 1/8 5R Barrel. That gun went about 1800 or so rounds and after the upper change has gone on for over 1000 more. No FTEs no DF's no KB's or other "entry level" AR problems. Next thing I might do is a trigger change but so far I am extremely satisfied with the one S&W that seems to get the most hate.

                  And it will probably run like a top for tens of thousands of more rounds.

                  Those melonite lined 1/8 5R barrels are more than hype. I've seen them out shoot significantly more expensive rifles on a few occasions.

                  Some of the aftermarket triggers do feel nice, but I feel like I'm still a far weaker link in the AR platform than the GI trigger. If I were setting up an AR-10 for long range, I'd probably go with a Timney kit. I've always assumed that the push-pull recoil effect of the AR's buffer tube design would have more of an impact on accuracy than the trigger, but haven't tested to confirm this.

                      Dont get me wrong SCSU I plan on adding a Colt in my future, but I didnt need a mid-high end AR for the shooting I was doing. Of course I get plenty of enjoyment shooting my buddy's BCM middy

                        Yeah, a Colt rifle isn't all it's cracked up to be... they aren't the standard by which all other ARs are judged, right?

                        When was the last time somebody said, "my Colt runs as well as an S&W"? That's right, they never will. It always goes "my S&W runs as well as a Colt" which is always followed by their S&W not running as well as a Colt.

                        If it's Koolaid that I am drinking, I will gladly continue to drink it.

                          Understood, its all about your personal requirements and plans for use. I have a colt because our agency list at the time was rock river or colt. Easy choice for me.

                            LOL, like the 9mm shooters. "With modern ammo its just as good as a .45!" while .45 shooters never say "with low quality ammo, its just as good as a 9mm!"

                                Its the constant talking down of lesser brands that leaves a bad taste in my mouth, some people cant afford a 1500 dollar Colt and opt to buy something more affordable. Some people buy them for their kids. The fact of the matter is, Steve made his choice and the first thing you do is bash it.

                                Does it come in blueberry?
