What\'s the Story on the Colt Light Rifle?

A buddy just got a Colt Light Rifle. What's the story on these? Are they good or bad? What about the recall? I tried some searching but didn't find much.

Any info appreciated!

Re: What\'s the Story on the Colt Light Rifle?

Actually, I did find the one four posts down, but only through a five year search of the long gun forum. The way the search results came back, I thought it was an "old" thread!

What little I've found indicates most seem to like their CLR, with a few saying it's a big piece of junk. Real helpful! Sounds like Colt abandoned the project mostly due to finances, and perhaps also because they could not meet their price point and it did not meet its published weight (though presumeably still somewhat light).

I've also read there was a recall on the model, although it is unclear on what caliber this recall covered -- just the 30-06?

Finally, I've picked up that there is essentially no support or spares for the model: Colt didn't buy the spares (and the last batch of rifles from SACO) and the design is different enough from the original UltraLight Arms that they can not help. Not that spare parts are necessarily needed.

I would still be interested if anyone would like to post on their impressions and experiences with this model.

Regards

Kevin
