That is one mean lookin' machine!

How are you liking the laser? Obviously good enough to keep it, but what kind of tests have you put it through? The one i'm considering is split 50/50. Half arrive DOA and the other half have had no problems at all. Some people report problems keeping it at zero, while others swear by its accuracy.

If im not mistaken the laser costed me <$50 from amazon. I bought it cos it was cheap for green laser. It comes with 2 switches and the mounting. Also it stays zero all the time. So far no problem but hey its $50 laser, i wont complain if theres an issue.

If you like the flashlights, I have and recommend an INOVA Inforce color. 125 lumen primary, 4 colored secondaries (actually, one of the secs is white also). Carbon fiber so it weighs very little. The mounting bracket is very unique...prob my fav thing about it. Kinda pricey, but it's something fun to play around with, aside from the practical application.

I'm wondering what the multiple colors would do for a person.

Be careful, there is a lot of airsoft stuff being sold on sites like Amazon and Ebay w/ claims of being the "real" thing.

I hear ya....no, I bought this from my LGS where I (obviously) do a LOT of business. To be honest, the colors are 4 little led "flood" lamps in the bezel. I would assume they would be used to navigate through wooded areas at night...wildlife apparently can't see colors. The main lamp is led also, and has 3 intensity settings. Just a cool little toy for me...thought the OP might wanna check 'em out since the "cool" factor was a player here. thanks for the heads up tho...

That's a great looking rifle, okdonk!


PPC, okdonk's stock would look great on your Colt! Really, a quality buttstock, sling and optic and you'll be set.
