I shopped around for quite some time. I really wanted to add a genuine Colt 14.5" SBR to the safe, but figured if I'm gonna go SBR then go all the way...

$1295.00 plus my $200 tax Stamp. I know... ouch... have had a teeny tiny bit of buyers remorse but got over it quick.

Availability of NIB seemed to be somewhat limited and the price difference for used was only $100 less.

Nice!

Is that fully fun-switch enabled, in addition to the short barrel?

^It's a factory SBR. And if I could find one in stock anywhere, I'd buy one, too.

Clyde Armory had them for $1299, as did a few other places.

OP, congrats on your purchase!

I used a Colt Commando as my perimeter and entry rifle for my last several years on the job. I found it to be most reliable,[lubed with BreakFree] and very accurate.

I used a Leupold CQT. Head shots at 100 yards and body shots at 300 yards were no problem. Ammo used was Winchester 55gr Ballistic Silvertips.

The Colt Commando is one fine piece of kit.

Nice rifle but very limited utility due to the poor ballistics from the abbreviated barrel, unless you plan on using it as an entry rifle. I used a 16" Commando as my patrol carbine for years and that 11.5" barrel with a 5.5" flash suppressor made it effective out to a couple of hundred yards, which was fine for a police patrol carbine. In this country a police sniper shot is usually around 80 yards, or so we were told when I worked SWAT back in the 80s at one of the advanced SWAT schools the team attended.

I love my 11.5" AR. I want a colt 10.3" whenever I can get the funds.
