Selling my Govt. Carbine to make room for a 6920. R6520 is absolutely unused and in immaculate condition. It is a factory assembled, complete carbine. It is identical to the current production LEO 6520 except that Colt made them in a grey finish and gave them CAR-15 stocks back then (stock is staked and has the proper Colt "N" marking). Also, it obviously does not have the LEO restriction roll-marks. All parts original and pristine, except push pin replaces small hole front pivot screw.
Thank God the ban was allowed to expire. I am only using the term "pre-ban" to differentiate it from the current production models. The price is what I personally feel is fair compensation to part with this rifle. It is no one's problem but my own. However, even at this price, I am taking quite a loss due to the fact that I purchased it during the "ban years." The fact remains that it is a NIB Colt properly configured factory carbine. And, with Colt's recent decision not to release "no-ban" rifles to civies, other than neutered Match Targets, this rifle may again become a scarce item.
I have pics and references available upon request.
Thanks in advance.
