Just curious to hear from Colt LE 6920 owners. Are you shooting them or stuffing them in your safe?

If you are shooting one - tell us about it. Anything special, or just another AR15 with soon to be "semi-rare" markings?

Didn't you order one? Did you get it?

Long story....short answer.

I got screwed. Dealer took a deposit and promised they would have one in just for me. Promised me it would be in stock and I could pick it up the day after the expiration for 870.00. I call the day I am going to pick it up and they say they are back ordered and need more time - and money. They decided that they sell for $1400.00 all of a sudden.

I just put a deposit down on another one from a board dealer .

I bought a 6920 and a 6520 off the EE after owning an A2 20" HB fo the past
10 years. The 20" HB is now the red headed step child and stays at home.

I have about 600 rounds through the 6920 and never any trouble.
It's alot faster then the 20 and handles alot better. I'm not as accurate
with it yet, but I have a TA31 on order to fix that problem.
It is LOUD, amazing what 4" of barrel can do as far as noise!

I plan to turn the 6920 into my pimp stick.
ARMS SIR
TA31
VG surefire
If im feeling gay, maybe a laser

The 6520 is the K.I.S.S. Carbine, no crap for that one.

I wouldn't take any other AR type rifle over the 6920!
I wish I had two, only then could I hold back from shooting it.

I bought mine a couple weeks ago and have had no problem with it. I have about 200 rounds through it currently.

Thanks for the reports!

Is the finish on them nice and black ?

What kind of sear block do they have in them. Is it just additional material that could be milled away, or is it the pinned in type?

I was suprised by the extra sound as well. My current barrel is 14.5 with a vortex perm. attached. I would not shoot that sucker without ear plugs unless it was to save my life!

My dad was out shooting it with me the other day and was slightly behind the firing line and about 15 feet away from me. He said he could feel the blast from there!

The real fun happens at an inside range I have had pistol shooters get ticked and move down two or three lanes from me. One had his pistol well in front of the firing line (unknown to me) and came over to complain that my "blast wave" was throwing his hand off to the right when shooting.

Got the 6920 HB, decided it was too rare to shoot.

Got a 6920 on order. It will be not be a safe queen.

I like Colts.
