Just in time for the holidays, Colt's Manufacturing Company is currently hosting a giveaway of one AR901-16S on its Facebook page. To enter, just "like" Colt on Facebook and follow the link on the giveaway posts to complete a simple entry form. The giveaway closes Dec. 21, and one winner will be selected at random and announced that day.

"With the recent launch of our new M.A.R.C. 901 family models, and the holidays fast approaching, it seemed like the perfect time to gift one of our loyal followers an AR901," said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing for Colt's Manufacturing Company. "We hope this will make someone's holiday season that much brighter."

The AR901-16S is one of four new additions to Colt's M.A.R.C (modular AR carbine) family. It features a free-floated barrel and user-configurable tubular handguard which allows for rail mounting beyond the standard 3-, 6-, 9- and 12-o'clock positions, to include rail mounting locations on 16 different planes. This makes the firearm more customizable and comfortable for users, and allows the positioning of rail sections where needed for accessories such as bipods, lasers, lights and more.

The AR901-16S has a B5 Bravo buttstock and measures 34.24-inches with the stock retracted, or 37.5-inches with the stock extended. It has a 1:12-inch, RH twist, weighs 8.24 pounds, and has an MSRP of $1,623.

Please visit Colt's Facebook page for additional details about the contest and to complete an entry form.
