    Colts HBAR A2 Sporter

    I was reading a recent thread on this forum and got my HBAR out to look at something. Hopefully we do not end up with a ban here as well. Thought I would post some pics. I have not ever fired it. Picked it up at an auction. I was only bidding as it started low and no one seemed to be into it. Hence, I now have my first Colt. I use Lee Enfield canvass slings on everything,love them.

    My first AR was an H-Bar I picked up from a friend when I was posted to Wainwright AB. He needed some available cash for a trip so I got it for $400CDN in about 1986 or so. It would have shot to better potential than I could have done...wish it was around now. I've had scads since and now just have my M4gery and a second similar...and one in .22.

    What is the back up (iron) sight on the M4. Looks interesting. Very nicely kitted out.

    Back up sight is un-named, probably an offshore copy. It's solid and has been there since the build some 10 years back... Yes, it works well and I had an EOTEC on at first until I tried an Aimpoint. Now I have an Aimpoint and sold the EOTEC. Little guy just has a simple Bushnell with muliti reticle. I use a heavy buffer, H1 in the M4gery and it has changed things a bit for the better. You can actually feel the difference when you shoot it.

    I have used an HBAR, back in the late eighties, and it was a very accurate rifle. The barrels are excellent and, with a float tube, make up into a pretty capable National Match "across the course" rifle here in the US. Even with the heavy barrel, a "tight slung hard holder" can deflect the barrel slightly unless you add the float tube.
    Neat Rifle!

    I was amazed to find that very thing. A military "Heavy" barrel like ours could flex and send your MPI off by as much as 2 feet at a couple hundred yards.
