Does it have any scratches?
Link Posted: 10/17/2008 4:12:21 PM EDT
Are they any better than a run of the mill stag?
Link Posted: 10/17/2008 4:12:54 PM EDT
No scratches..  Just took it out of the box.

If you don't mind me asking, what did it set you back?

Is it true that Colt has started subbing out their 6920 production to Oly?

$1500 on the credit card.  I know ive seen em cheaper on the web..   but I got one new in box and it was there.  Also got 2 X20rd mags and a couple of MagPul 30's.  Its also got the full auto bolt carrier.  

Had to get one while I could.

Wait, you got an AR15 for voting? They must be expecting a rough election.

I'm keeping the box.  The rifle is in the bag, in my safe.  I'm keeping the bag too.

(It does smell good)

I do want to thank the ARFCOM community for all the knowledge, range reports and downright entertainment on helping me make this purchase!!!  

I end up reading most of the time and rarely post.   Im workin on changing that.

Contrary to what some people say about Colt,,There is no feeling better (well maybe there is ) than taking your new Colt out of the box and holding, admiring it

Welcome to the best AR-15 money can buy club!

I'll raise my 6920 to toast yours.

Some may take issue with that.
Link Posted: 10/18/2008 10:32:30 AM EDT
I've been contemplating on getting one. Hopefully there will be a few at the HGCA show in Houston. Everything I have now was assembled on RRA lowers.
Link Posted: 10/18/2008 10:37:51 AM EDT
Now that I have the 6920, I hope (and vote) that I can continue to collect more and diffrent brands and types of these wonderful tools..   I would like to do a build next year and this will be the place for advice and guidance.

Good luck

I'm jealous.

I remember that feeling when I got mine...

it aint a RRA....but it'll do

Me too. Now you got me thinking about getting another one, Damn you!

I just bought a Colt 6920 because of the coming election as well .

I paid $1199 ,plus shipping and my local guys FFL fee .

Perfect timing that the C-Products mags went on sale as well.


This is my first new AR in over a decade .

She shoots like a dream .

I need to pick a place to buy some Troy BUIS so I can put my
Eotech 552 on .
