What is the difference between a Colt Law Enforcement Carbine and your standard ar-15. It seems Le carbines are hard to find, very durable and can quickly attach an m203. What is special about them?

It's a M4 carbine with a 16" barrel so it's not a NFA weapon, and it lacks 'Group Therapy' mode. Basically the closest thing you can buy to a real-deal just like Uncle Sam's M4.

Lightweight, durable, and reliable.

How it differs from an AR-15? Well AR-15 is generally considered a broad term today - like 'Pickup Truck' or 'SUV'. It IS one kind of AR-15.

The LEO Colts differ from the non LEO Colts by having a flash hider, retractable stock, proper buffer [Not the plastic ones that come or DID come in the non LEOs] chromed bore [some non LEOs are not chromed]. They also come with 2 20 or 30 round mags instead of the low capacity ones.

I just wanted to add that the LE models are also different from their commercial models because since about a year ago, Colt are supplying the LE models M16 bolt carriers.

Does the LE models use the Mil-Spec FCG pins or have a sear block? (VS blocked w/ oversized pins)

Thanks,

Sly

LE models use big FCG pins and have an aluminum bridge where the steel sear block used to be.
