Due to financial problems, and limitations in terms of manpower and production capacity, ArmaLite sold the AR-15 design and the Colt AR15 9mm Carbine trademark along with the ArmaLite AR-10 to Colt’s Manufacturing Company in 1959.
Colt started selling the semi-automatic version of the M16 rifle as the Colt AR15 Carbine in 1964.
The first mass production version was the Colt AR-15 Sporter, in .223 Remington, with a 20-inch barrel, issued with 5-round magazines.Colt has since made many different models of AR-15 rifle and carbine models, including the AR-15, AR-15A2, AR-15A3, AR-15A4, and others.
Sale of new AR-15s in the USA was banned by the Federal Assault Weapons Ban from 1994 to 2004. Colt and others continued to sell legally compliant versions during that period.
On September 20, 2019, Colt announced that it would no longer produce the Colt AR15 9mm Carbine for private use, due to market saturation. It would still produce the AR-15 for police and military units. By May 2020, changed market conditions encouraged Colt to resume production for sales to private users.
