I'm kind of torn.  I like the KISS look, but I hate the stock that came with it, and the basic handguard could stand to be upgraded.

Then I start wondering about the trigger, the grip, and it spirals downward into changing out almost everything.

I like it just the way it is.

What do you not like about the stock?

It won't stay locked in position.

The only legitimate " Upgrade " is 5000 rounds of M193
Link Posted: 9/7/2013 11:33:30 PM EDT
One meeeeeeellion dollars.

But no really $500 for a optic, $100 for a good sling and mounts and $150 for a light and mount.

What stock do you have?
Link Posted: 9/7/2013 11:36:40 PM EDT
I'd spend whatever it cost to chop  1 1/2" off the end of the barrel and perm install the flash hider.  Or just buy a rifle with the correct gas system.

Because we all know how unreliable those 6920s are.

Nothing twelve magazines, and 5000 rounds wont cure.

New stock that will stay in position, not expensive. New grip, not expensive. I love my Ergo SureGrip, was like $23. Geissele SSA, $180 - $210 depending on where you find one. BEST thing you can do for ANY AR!  Aimpoint PRO, $370 - $408ish, again find the good deals.

Link Posted: 9/8/2013 12:00:17 AM EDT
Small changes. Just replace the upper and lower with billet, the barrel with a mid length, the handguards with a free float modular, the trigger with a geiselle, and the stock/buffer with an a5 kit.

Actually, enjoyed the 6920s I had. Would suggest buying/building another rifle to mess around with if you are bored.





Link Posted: 9/8/2013 12:07:02 AM EDT
My "main" 6920, the only thing 6920 about it now is the upper and stripped lower.  Every other part has been replaced and/or upgraded.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 12:07:25 AM EDT
I prefer the more triangular MOE handguards or the round regular handguards to the oval version that the newer Colt's come with.

I also prefer the Sopmod style stocks although the Rogers stock is fine when you lock it down.


If you hate the stock try the the Sopmod Bravo it's only $58, so you could sell the Rogers stock you have and probably break even.

Cant talk to you about your 6920 because your avatar sucks.

Link Posted: 9/8/2013 12:15:01 AM EDT
1) Sopmod stock

2) KAC RAS

3) Aimpoint Pro

Meaning what? Is it broken and sliding around? Just wobbling in one spot like many carbine stocks do? Then just put a Magpul CTR on it and call it a day.

The Rogers stock on the 6920 already has a lock like the CTR.

Link Posted: 9/8/2013 12:57:06 AM EDT
I changed out the handguards, the shitty looking Rogers SS, and the grip to Magpul and called it done.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 1:48:45 AM EDT
Nothing wrong with spending $$ upgrading your 6920...Though if you are spending $$$$ Id say you should think about just getting a different rifle.

I put a Geissele trigger in mine and  B5 sopmod stock on it and am happy with it...
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 2:07:46 AM EDT
You could save a bit of coin if you bought used rails, grips, etc. Personally,  I think you should modify it to your heart's content. But if you do, and you end up selling it, just don't expect to recoup everything you put into it (like anything else).  Good luck!
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 2:13:53 AM EDT
I think I replaced the handguard with magpul MOE, the stock with a magpul CTR, and put a magpul swivel sling mount on the back of the receiver. Oh, and an Eotech of some sort.

I don't really see that anything else is necessary. Trigger? On an AR-15? How far away do you think you're going to be shooting people from?
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 2:42:22 AM EDT
Zero.  Its perfect as it comes.

Well, if you tell people on this forum that you have an AK, all of a sudden they never engage anyone inside of 600 yards.  
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:02:18 AM EDT
Magpul MOE furniture, a light and mount, lots of PMAGs and call it good.

I like that, and when you're done you can build a 6920 out of your parts bin.

The problem with upgrading a 6920 is that some asshole is going to go and tell you that you diminished its resale value.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:12:38 AM EDT
I did this



I added the DD rail. Already had the 93b, ACOG etc...
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:14:50 AM EDT
No need to upgrade, already have the best factory rifle made.

And that lock ain't worth shit on the Stuperstock, I junked the one on my "shooter" 6920 1st chance I got and the only reason I left it on my "safequeen" 6920 is I'm leaving that NIB...I know not to mess with that cheap assed lock now
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:23:58 AM EDT
If your Rogers stock doesn't lock, it sounds like it's broken. It's under warranty, send it back and get it fixed.

I'd buy it from you, as I like the stock, but not if it's broken.

Seriously, why would you settle for a brand new, broken gun?
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:26:10 AM EDT
After you change everything on it will you still have an LE6920?
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:37:47 AM EDT
I would just build another gun from scratch the way you want it and keep the Colt for a plinker and as a proven and reliable SHTF gun.  Building from new would be easier and less messier than trying to dissasemble the Colt and modifying it with substandard parts.  And you'll end up with a second gun for couple to a few hundred dollars more than you would have spent just modifying the Colt and making it less reliable.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 5:50:46 AM EDT
Edit: beat by a mile ^^

Keep the 6920 as your backup fun gun after replacing the stock.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 6:22:53 AM EDT
I would replace; stock, barrel, hand guards and trigger then add optics.

Mine is outfitted with a 14.5" barrel, fixed flash hider, Knight's handguards, and the old style CAR stock. Looks very basic. Just threw an Eotech on it.

Before they became common I added a Magpul stock, trigger guard, grip, and fore rail. Basically kept it simple.It now sports a Aimpoint Comp M4 with Larue mount. Will add a trigger job later, probably Timney.
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 6:42:06 AM EDT
I had mine juiced out with magpul stuff Acog etc. Then I bought a 14.5 P&W BCM upper and swapped everything back over to the 6920. I like the classic look of this rifle without all the mods on it.

The lock wore out on me, and I did send it back for a replacement and sold that on the EE after I changed the stock to a magpul SRT

Why not just build exactly what you want?
Link Posted: 9/8/2013 9:20:17 AM EDT
Colt M4A1 SOCOM- $1417 out the door with mil discount.

RAS II (second from KAC- $150)
Geissele trigger (spelled it wrong I know ($180, standard SSA)
TA01NSN (used LNIB for $650 with  case, papers etc)
Hogue Grip ($18)
KAC 600m micro sight ($85 NIW)

and some other stuff I am forgetting.

Needless to say, it was a fairly cheap upgrade set, it works and works well

Got everything I wanted for a total of right at $2500.

damn good shooting rifle too!
