Colt Firearms displayed its new M2012 Competition Rifle at this year’s National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting in St. Louis. Details are scarce right now (mainly because I’m in Virginia), but the new bolt gun is chambered for .308 and features a 22-inch barrel with a 1:10 twist.
The M2012 comes with a SureFire Muzzle Brake, a Cooper Firearms receiver and a Mapul pistol grip, according to gun bloggers. It weighs 13.2 pounds without optic and retails for about $3,800 — Ouch!!!! It’s scheduled to be available by early summer. Haven’t heard anything on performance yet, so if anyone hears anything, please let us know.
