I am currently leaning to go with the MRP. I have 5 other ARs, an 18" varmit/tactical rifle that shoots less than 1/2MOA, two SBRs (11.5", 10.3"), a 16" gas gun and a 16" piston, so I'm in no hurry to get this one into my safe. If the Colt 6940p arrives before the MRP does, I will take a look at it. I guess my only concern is that recently Colt's quality control on fit and finish hasn't been the best, but again that doesn't affect function.
I also see that there is a 6.8 barrel available for the MRP. I believe that it is compatible with 300BLK, so that may be an interesting option (two diff calibers).
