First, where should I go looking for a Colt in AZ. I am a civilian, if that matters. If I should wait for a gun show, which one? ( this will be first thing in November)

Second, What models are common, or commonly sold to civies. I'd like a 6921 with a 14.5 barrel, but do they come with the flash suppressor permanetly attached? Is the 6520 available? I know the 6920 is spoke of a lot, I'd like the shorter barrel of the 6921.


And....how much should I be paying?

You're probably better off just ordering exactly what you want and finding an FFL to do the transfer. That way you can get anything and probably save some money.

Try your local gunshop.

6921 don't come with a permenently attached flash suppressor, and even if it does it still won't reach the 16" minimum, so unless you file for a SBR you can't have it. 6920 comes with 16" barrel and is otherwise identical to the 6921.

I would be surprized of a local gun shop would carry either of these unless the deal with law enforcement, since Colt is kinda picky about who they let sell LE weapons.

There are lots of guys on the EE selling the 6920, errrr where, I've been away for while and haven't looked lately. IIRC though, most dealers on the EE where a bit overpriced as compaired to Clyde Armory. Thats where I got both my 6920 and 6721. Pleasure to deal with too. I've never heard a complaint about those guys.

I dunno where you heard that from but the stuff about Colt being "picky" about who they sell to are all hearsay and internet rumours.

Colt does not sell to individual FFLs, they only sell to distributors. Therefore a FFL wouldn't be dealing directly with Colt anyway. And there's nothing that keeps an FFL from ordering anything from a Colt distributor. Colt does not have control over who their distributor sell to provided that everything's done lawfully.

If your local shop doesn't carry/stock colt rifles, he/she can certainly order one for you. If an FFL told you they can't order Colt rifles, he's feeding you a bunch of bullshit.

My point was Colt wont send LE rifles to just any distributor, since Colt has now split into two companies, or civi and one LE/Defence, the have distributors for both. IIRC, I dont believe a distributor slated for the civilian side of the market can even order a LE rifle.

Colt no longer cares who buys there rifles. They did at the start of the end of the ban, but have since changed there minds.

I did get to stop in at Prescott Valley Guns, which is about forty miles from my house. They actually had a few Colts in stock. A twenty inch A2, a SP1 ($1600!!) and one heavy barreled model with a 4 position stock.

I have to say if I had buy buying today, it wouldn't have been a Colt. Both the SP1 and the HBar model were loose as a goose. I guess I expected a Colt to be a little more impressive. maybe the parts are quality, but my DSA makes them feel like crap. You could read a book thru the gap. They were beat only by a new Armalite that felt like every part was loose. It rattled like a garbage can from the handguard to the stock, including the reciever.

With the sale of my house, I was going to treat myself to a Colt, now I'n not so sure.

One must call first before heading to their "store".
