I have a new barrel for my 6920 and want to build a new upper for it with that berrel. So i can keep the stock one together as extra. What do i need to do this and i would like to stay with colt? Or can i just buy a upper complete less the barrel and put my forend and barrel on?

Yeah, you can buy an assembled upper with no barrel. To install your barrel, you'll need an action block, barrel wrench, some moly lube, and preferably a torque wrench.

Assuming that you have a barrel and nothing else: bolt carrier assembly, charging handle, delta ring, weld spring, snap ring, gas tube, handguards, handguard cap, and flash suppressor.

$299 for an upper with only a FA knob and a cover? ---- AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

that­'s a lot of coin to get a part that doesn't even say "Colt" on it.

While the Clot upper will have the cool little M4 stamp on the front of the receiver, there's not really anything else making it better than a CMT or LMT M4 receiver.
Either of these can be obtained for more like $125.
I know I have both of them in stock...



I was just going by his original request.


I would like to stay with Colt.

With respect to the initial poster's request, there are things that should be Colt and things that really don't need to be Colt. Upper and lower receivers are two things that definitely DO NOT need to be Colt, but they are the visible, bling with the Colt markings that most want, so there you go.
