Manufacturer - Colt
While the Colt name is virtually synonymous with handguns, Sam Colts initial revolvers off the assembly line were longarms. Thats right. The first production model of any Colt was the No.1 Ring Lever Rifle. The carbine breech (attachable shoulder stocks for handguns) and Americas first slide action rifle were also part of Colts on-and-off ventures into longarms. Then in 1963 the AR-15 and M16 .223 automatic rifles made Colts the small-arms sensation of modern warfare. Their unmatched accuracy, performance and durability are available in their direct descendent, the Colt semiautomatic-only, sporting rifles. Theyre ideal for hunting, plinking and competition shooting.
