Colt will suspend production of AR-15 rifles for civilian sales, saying there's an "adequate supply" of the high-powered weapons already in the market, the famed gun manufacturer said Thursday.

The gun-maker, based in West Hartford, Connecticut, said its decision is purely market-driven and made no mention of any public pressure over the AR-15's use in several mass shootings in the United States.

"The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity," Colt President and CEO Dennis Veilleux said in a statement.

Colt's are a higher priced AR. I can't say that the quality justifies the price. It's certainly no Anderson or Noveski but certainly better than DPMS or Omni. Id say they are on the same quality level as S&W and Ruger. Both of those can be had starting at $650ish. Personally I like Aero Precision and Alex Pro.

None of the off the shelf colts interest me. I bought one S&W AR and every one afterwards was a custom build.
