Colt CLT CRXM177E2

Recommended Posts

So many better AR platform guns out there for the price.  I would even look at a Non-NFA "Other" Firearm (AR type) like the Troy A4 Other.  

The chamber dimensions for the 5.56 are slightly larger than a .223 chamber.  The leade (or throat) is the area between the front of the chamber and the point where the bullet itself connects with the rifling.  5.56 rounds are slightly longer than .223, which means 5.56 ammo can be a little bit hotter, and cause overpressure in a .223 chamber.  Basically - get an AR with a barrel chambered in 5.56 or .223 Wylde.  That means it can shoot both 5.56 and .223 safely.

You really should learn as much as you can about all aspects of the riffle. Just humble advise from a guy that didn't know this was so deep! Also keep in mind if that riffle is used in a HD situation .....it will be taken by the police.

Looking for home defense purpose.  Is the Colt CLT CRXM177E2 a good, better or best AR weapon for the money? (approx. $2700)

There are many very fine ARs for home defense that can be had for under $1000.  IMHO you will not be any safer/better off by spending more than that.

This article might be helpful.

    • Thanks for sharing these. Looks like time for a road trip!
    • Day three was very good to the Team USA Skeet Shooters, as they won the gold in both the Men's and Women's events! Returning Olympic Medalist Vincent Hancock was in 4th place after the previous day's qualification round, 2 birds behind the leader, while Amber English was in 3rd place, but 3 birds back.   Both pulled it out in the final, each setting new Olympic records, Vincent winning an unprecedented third Olympic Gold Medal in the event. Men's Skeet Gold  V. Hancock, USA, 59 (Olympic Record!) Silver  J. Hansen, Denmark, 55 Bronze  A. Al-Rahshidi, Kuwait, 46 Men's Skeet Finals - video Women's Skeet Gold A. English, USA, 56 (Olympic Record!) Silver D. Bacosi, Italy, 55 Bronze  M. Wei, China, 46 Women's Skeet Finals - video In Skeet, after a 125 target qualification round, six shooters advance to the final.  In a manner similar to that seen in the air gun events, partway through the final the lowest shooters are eliminated from the squad, one by one, until at the end only the top two shooters remain in head-to-head competition.   It is another fairly recent change to how the match is run, probably made in the interest of making it more interesting for the TV audience (and more stressful to the shooters). Since so much is different in international competition than what we are used to in US shooting events, I've attached the link below with good information on how every event works. How are the Olympic shooting events scored?
    • I got a service grade from them about a year ago and it was great. It does have a replacement stock with the CMP cartouche. I would absoluetly get another on but I'm on the list for the 1911's.
    • Great shop!  @Pizza Bob turned me on to them a few years ago.
