There's a 6920 sitting in the case at my local wally world.....$1067 before tax. I'm currently AR-less due to divorce and such and I wanted to build but NOBODY has squat in stock, making that Colt look tempting.


How's the price? Fit was good.


Is it just wrong to by from WW? I generally only go there for car oil and such...hate the place.

Fantastic price; surprised no one has jumped on it, especially for prices of Colt and other rifles such as Daniel Defense or BCM going up.

I wish my Walmart had them. At that price I'd buy two. Really, I would.

Look at all the major dealers - not many of them have stock on the Colts right now.

Thats a good price for that gun. However, you can build a great rifle for a couple hundred cheaper by buying a rifle kit from PSA and then picking up a lower of your choice. Which leaves lots more money for mags, ammo, etc.

while I love my PSA.

If I was to purchase a complete rifle and not build one, this would be my choice.

However, building one is easy (lower anyways) and I'd rather get what I wanted from the start than change stuff after buying a complete rifle.

Yeah, this is where I.m stuck. I like to build ARs, and I know I could build it just right for around this price w/mega, moe, etc. But all the good parts are unavailable and I could have this tonight

Every damn barrel or lower/upper I want is unavailable

If i was in your shoes i'd go buy that Colt before someone else does.
You can always build one later when the parts become more available for what you want to build.

Go see the fat chick at Wally World and she'll fix you up with a Colt.

The Colts from WW are less quality than Colts from other sources

And the 6920 is $1097.00 at Wal-Marts around these parts. So you are getting a smidgen better. Buy it!!!

Great price and readily available, where is the problem?

I should add that parts and rifle availability will get even worse as we get closer to the election and depending how it goes it could be bad for a while afterwards. If you want a rifle you better snap it up.

You are in AZ, that's cash and carry. Yeah, I would buy two for sure, money in the bank.

My new Colt LE6920, no LE restricted markings and with Colt-Rogers SuperStoc.

No Colt at my local Walmart but I snagged this lonely pony from my LGS when I happened to drop by last Saturday, it cost more than what you saw, mine was around $1097, but I don't see much of them around where I live.

This is my second 6920, I bought a SP6920 marked Sporter a year ago, it runs pretty good and all my current and former Colt ARs runs fine with my 41 years experience with them.


YMMV

I would much rather have a Colt than a PSA rifle. Better resale value and quality is more consistent.

They are cheap because that model is an inexpensive one. Even MSRP is just shy of $1200, so you would expect them to sell on the street for about $1K. From what another guy stated in another thread, they are marked up 19.7%. My go to dealers only mark their stuff up about 11%. So Walmart is actually making a decent cut on the sales at the normally seen $1097 price.

Ahh I see everybody's sarcasm meters are broken today. To all those who got their panties in a bunch relax and yea yea, this is a technical forum, far worse has happened in these threads.

OP - excuse my humor. Great deal and the quality is just the same as anywhere else you buy a Colt.

If I were you I'd be looking for my keys and wallet...

Once you have the Colt, then start building the one you want.

its a joke, whether its meant to be or not, hence the funny emiticon.

although braving the WW crowds is a experience you won't get at a gun store, or a circus either

oops didn't see above

So I drove all the way back.... and didnt buy it It was 1096 plus tax, Just over twelve out the door. As I held it in my hand I started thinking about what it needed right away ( a sure sign of BRD) and got up to $1600 pretty quick. I can build my perfecr AR for about $1400 from parts so I tore, and I do mean tore myself away from the counter.

Cottonwood Walmart if anyone is looking


Thanks Guys!
