Rant: The Colt LE901 Scrooge Edition

If you have an expensive new product and want to increase sales, you have a few options.  You can tell customers to suck it up because your product speaks for itself and is worth every penny.  You can cut corners and discount the gun, run special manufacturer sales or rebates and try to attract more buyers.  You can also take the current product, make a "budget" variant and remove some odds and ends and premium features that buyers can add later on.  With the modular LE901 rifle, Colt did the latter.  Sort of.

The problem is that Colt seems to have a different definition of odds and ends as I do.
