Are Colt LE6920's safely capable of handling a true 5.56mm cartridge or is it chambered solely for .223?

And if I did want a Colt chambered in 5.56mm what model would I be looking for?

Thanks,
Prib

6920 is 5.56.

I think most Colts are 5.56

Try the 6920.

Man, that was quick. All the ad's I see for them list .223 cal, some list .223 (5.56)

What are the barrels stamped?
