I wish consumers wouldn't demand a product like this.
LMT is a company with lousy QC. Buy from a company that cares about its products, like Bravo Company or LaRue.

Disappointing to me.

Love Colt as though I do, their licensed products are not terribly strong.

Engraved markings and lack of Colt "C" marks on major components would seem to imply that they are not Colt Hartford parts. Unstaked castle nut is odd as well.

Unimpressed, though I feared this would be what it was.

So they made it light by eliminating the ejection port door?

After all this panic settles down, and prices are back to "normal", this rifle will cost just a little less than a LE 6920. I have a couple theories about this rifle, the reason for this rifle, and I hope I am wrong. I love the Colt name, the history, the products, pretty much everything Colt. I don't like this rifle, I don't think it deserves the Colt name.

Very Nice close ups, but do you have some wide angle shots?

I prefer it with both, if I want that I would build a retro. He can always just change the upper though.

I really dig the lower rollmark. One of those with "M4A1 CARBINE" instead would be a sick build lower!

On a bright note, the haters can stop complaining about the web on the lower. But I agree with the above remarks and this rifle is not my thing.

I suspect this has less to do with Colt deciding to stop using the sear web and more with the fact that they are not making the 6900 lowers in house.

Though who knows, it could be part of the "2013 Configuration."

Colt should be more careful licensing his brand name

The probably shaved quite a bit of money off the cost of the upper, which means they can build more profit in.

I would use one for a hunting rifle if i were inclined to make a rifle for that purpose.
Your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible.... you fear blood more and more. Blood and time.

I would be quite surprised if there is a genuine "Colt" part on that rifle. My guess is that this rifle is manufactured by a third party simply on a variance of Colt's FFL, that way they can put Hartford, CT on the gun, without the gun ever having been to Connecticut, or subjected to the costs of union labor. With that said, a couple of the Colt licensed guns (Gatling Gun and CR line) are very well built, and to me pretty cool. What I don't like is a "cheapening up" of a gun that bears the Colt LE69XX markings.

I'm betting that is a Smith and Wesson MP15 Sport under the Colt markings.

The 1-in-8" twist is an interesting departure from Colt's norm. Not something I would've expected, but I kind of like it.

I'd like to see Colt introduce a midlength. In fact, as successful as those products have been for other manufacturers, I'm surprised they haven't done so already.

No "C MP" on the barrel? Like someone said earlier about the "C" forge mark, these missing items are standard on all Colt ARs and to flood the market with products that are missing them only adds to aftermarket confusion, etc...

Looks like it was built (possibly by S&W?) subcontracted (due to the lack of normal Colt Markings) in order to give Colt a full product line - "Inexpensive AR to MILSPEC M4 to Piston AR to .308/Convertable AR" Covering All Bases!

By itself, not necessarily a bad thing - as entry level guns get people into the hobby, and then they get the bug, and rebuild it and/or buy upward.

Let's see what it looks like if it makes production, given the current Political climate.

PS - Midlength is supperflous sillyness - unless civilian bayonet drill is in your future!
