Both were feed issuies. Tried different mags, ammo, cleaned and lubed multiple times. The second rifle would maybe rechamber twice then either jam or fail to chamber. At one point customer service told me that I need to put 500 rounds through it to break it in. Now this has been 6-8 years ago.
As far as reliability I'm not saying they will fall apart or need rebuilt every couple hundred rounds, but as with any gun with that many moving parts it needs a more maintaince. then a bolt gun[/QUOTE]
Well that sucks and is very very uncommon from colt. I would say getting a bad ar from them is about like getting a bad rock. I wish I could have trouble shot them for you bet I could have got them running. I have a colt HBAR and have never had any issue. The only issue with colt in my opnion is that dam sear block on the older ones and that oversized take down pin.
