Today, I went back to the Walmart. The price is actually $1699, and not $1650 (I edited my initial post).

And just FYI, it’s the only Colt still available on the rack. All the 6920s and 6940s have been sold.
So Walmart shoppers seems to do their homework before dropping that kind of money on a gun.

I'd never buy it.

But really folks, if your wife bought that, wrapped it up, and stuck it under the tree, you wouldn't feel like a kid again on Christmas morning? You wouldn't be the proudest husband, with the best wife on the block? Think of the target demographic here.

Hey...I just think that it great that WalMart is selling ARs.
They also now have lots of 5.56 ammo in stock.
Good for them.

Ahhhhh....it's seems just like yesterday when the 94 AWB expired, and Colt had initially decided not to sell any 6920's to lowly civilians.

Just look at'em now....gettin' all snugly with us common folk. Gets me all misty.

Magpul this, Black Hawk that, neat-o 6920 variations....guess getting smoked on the M4 contract got them all warm and fuzzy once Uncle Sugar kicked'em outta bed.

I can't wait until the Colt/Tapco collaborations!

Oh gawd I hate being in the gun section when people like you go in there. Whippin' out knives from your many many cargo pockets, "educating" the poor schlub behind the counter on the twist rate of a barrel on a gun you have no intention to buy. Is your wallet on a chain? I may have seen you last week...

It's too bad someone had to pay $400 too much instead of just getting a simple Colt 6920 and a Pelican case without the other B.S.

This sort of gun elitism can be taken to extreme examples on a site like M4carbine.net. There they think the individuals on ARFCOM are idiots; a common insult is to say that a particularly naive post or point of view is something you would see on "TOS" (the other site).

I like the concept, the execution is what is lacking. First, price point is way too high. They should have the rifle come with a medium quality BOB instead. They could either package it in the BOB upper/lower detached or not bother. This would drop the retail price about $150. Then, I would have chosen different items for the BOB, but the concept would be better executed and at a lower price.

The margin on firearms is pretty low, but a lot higher on the other stuff. What if it was $1099 for the 6920 plus $200 in BOB materials. 5 mags, emergency water, iodine tabs, food bars, small compass, light, knife, fire starter etc, backpack. All for $1299.00. Then, Bubba sees this next to the SOCOM and 6940 and it cost less with all those goodies.

I purchased a lower build kit w/o the fcg from PSA earlier this year, and it came with the Blackhawk grip and stock. I find the grip to be comfortable, and the stock to be an improvement over the generic 6-position stock.

Regarding durability, I cannot comment. I haven't had the opportunity to crack a zombie's skull open with the stock, nor use the mortar technique to clear a jam.

Mark my words. It is only a matter of time before they start using substandard parts in their guns.
I need a couple of the old style clamps for troy folding sights.

What are they going to do buy them from DD, or Stag?

That is one over priced POS though! Must be geared towards the wannabes
Also Nobody can out Mossberg, Mossberg!

I was thinking more along the lines of dropping the testing and using inferior metals to save cost. They are currently marketing to a crowd that knows nothing about quality parts and cares not to dig into it to find out. If this market starts to make up a large enough portion of its sales I believe my original statement will hold true. They can ride their rep all the way to the bank.

I saw one of those at the local Walmart about a month ago, and I was wondering why it costs so much. I walked out of the store laughing. The case and all the extras kind of make it seem not so bad, but I think it would have made more sense with furniture by a company other than Blackhawk. At the same time, that Blackhawk stuff seems to fly off the shelves there, so that might be where they are taking their cues from.

I'm not sure. I don't see any Mossberg models coming with a box of water.
