And as for Colt NEVER selling AR rifles in .223, they did in the late 1950's and early 1960's before the .5.56 cartridge was developed for military use.

Back then the full-auto rifle was called the AR-15 and it was chambered for the Remington .223 cartridge.
It was only after the military decided to buy the rifle as the M16 did they develop the military 5.56 cartridge.
