Colt Rifle Basics
Colt rifles began with the design of the Stoner AR-15. The company transformed that into a rifle suitable for military use, the M16, which was first used in combat during the Vietnam War. Today, the Colt M4 carbine, the M16's successor, is being phased in as the primary weapon of infantry. Colt's civilian rifles are all designed and manufactured in Colt factories based on the same stringent military standards and specifications. Colt also produces a variety of bolt-action rifles.

Colt Rifle History
Colt's Manufacturing Company was founded in 1855 by Samuel Colt. Colt, the company and the man, rose to prominence on the back of the success of the Colt Walker revolver during the Mexican-American War. As a businessman, Samuel Colt embraced the use of assembly lines and other industrial revolution developments to commercialize his manufacturing practices. The revolving gun mechanism that made Colt famous is viewed by many as more innovation than invention. The patent that Colt was granted involved improving upon the revolving flintlock, which was used on muskets and rifles, already patented by inventor Elisha Collier. The Colt company made more than 400,000 firearms during Colt's lifetime. He left the company to his wife after his death. In 1901, the company was sold to a group of investors. The company has sold more than 30 million pistols since its inception.
