A Battle Proven Warhorse. The AR-15 was first built by ArmaLite as an infantry rifle for the United States military. After experiencing financial problems, ArmaLite sold the design to Colt in 1958. Several modifications were made -- most notably relocation of the charging handle to the rear of the receiver -- and the M-16 rifle was adopted into U.S. military service in 1962.

Colt then began selling the semi- automatic version of the M-16 on the civilian market in 1963, which was subsequently branded the "AR-15" sporter rifle. The designation stuck and has been in place ever since. Even though "AR-15" has been a registered trademark of Colt since day one, it has become engrained in American culture as an industry standard term used describe all of the Colt clones as well.

The AR-15/M-16 represents the most successful weapon's platform in history. Never before has a military firearm evolved so rapidly, so completely and in so many directions. It often said that the AR-15 is the erector set of the shooting world, being set- up, changed, accessorized, rethought, rebuilt and put together to suit almost any need.

This precision design has successfully served as a military, sniper, law enforcement, defensive, hunting, competition and target rifle in more calibers and configurations than one can possible conceive. No other firearm can make that claim. Many argue that it is the most versatile military small arm ever invented and after 60- years of service, is still going strong today as our nation's primary battle rifle.

At the heart of the design is a direct gas impingement system. Gas is tapped from the barrel as the bullet passes by the port located above the rifle's front sight base. The gas then rushes into the port and down a gas tube located above the barrel and into the upper receiver.

From there, the gas tube funnels into the bolt carrier. This gas system unlocks the bolt and begins the cycling process, but only after the bullet has exited the barrel. Direct impingement has several advantages over gas piston systems. For semi- automatic rifles with a barrel length of 16" or greater, impingement AR-15s are lighter, easier to free float the barrel, and much less expensive to manufacture.

The Colt Expanse™ M4 carbine puts a Colt quality AR-15 within easy reach of the modern sportsman looking to enhance his or her collection, or the first-time buyer looking for a starting point on which to build their dream modern sporting rifle. Either way, the Expanse™ M4 in 5.56 x 45 NATO (.223 Rem.) is a great way to add another Colt to the stable. The Expanse™ CE2000 is upgraded to include a forward assist and dust cover.
