Just had a FFL holder tell me Colt is due to release 30,000 6920's starting Jan 15th. He claims to have spoken to a Colt sales rep. On a related subject, he also claims to have spoken to a Magpul rep who told him they would be filling orders with 100,000 30td pmags.

Can anyone confirm these claims?

I was kinda thinking the same thing. But, better to ask the ones "in the know", rather than start another rumor. The FFL I spoke to has a gun shop, but is by no means a big fish.

I haven't heard anything in the dealer channels about it at all.

But one thing you can count on, Colt, Magpul and every other maker is going to manufacture and release every single one that they can produce.

30,000 you say????

Hell, if they shipped 300,000 today, they'd be gone in a week.

Quality guns during a frenzy and possibly a potential ban, lots of profits to be made

One reason people who are buying as much as they can to sell it later for profit better sell soon
But if they don't get banned... supply will have outpaced demand by a longshot (no pun intended).

Heck, some folks may end up having trouble giving them away...

You can never have enough guns
I know what you're talking about ;)
But between you and me, I have a slightly different opinion...

Beware the man with only one gun. He likely knows how to use it.

Dear Lord, please let no ban happen. Not to protect my firearm ownership, but to, in the sense of irony, dump thousands of thousands of more rifles into Americans hands, as a direct result of people trying to deny liberty.

I would seriously doubt the story about Colt. They have a Zero Inventory policy. They make 'em and ship 'em. There is no chance they have been stocking up with 30K rifles, not happening.

As far as Magpul? I am sue they are making mags as fast as they can, but they would be stupid to release 100K of them at once. Not a good business decision to flood the market with your product.

beware the man with 37 guns, he is a bad a$$
Or simply a collector ;)

This would be awesome! Maybe I could add a AR10 to the stable for less than an arm and a leg :)
That's a hope I have too, but I think .223 and X39 chamberings will be affected most.

Personally, I think I would prefer the M1A over the AR10 anyway. Just personal preference.
