Changed my mind on the Sig 556

There is a Colt 6920 "Magpul" at Walmart Stalking me.

If I recall right it's over $1200

Reading other posts i,ve seen prices for the 6920 around $800-900.Dollars.

I this the price for a Basic 6920 Without the Magpul Stuff added?

My need is -A dependable Rifle ( for any use outside of the water) , Ill only Hunt if I & my family is Starving so I doubt it will be used for that.

I would like the gun to have a rail for an Eotech 'or similar site.
and a short or mid-size Front Quad rail for a light ; etc.

Basically my question is Should I go ahead & get the Magpul 6920 for more $ or get a "Base" model & add Stuff as I go along.

Does the $800-900 Dollar rifle come with a rail for the optic or would it come with a Handle that can be replaced with a optic rail.

Thanks
Davers

The colt is a good rifle, but the magpul stuff isn't worth $300. If you can get a colt for $8-900 then get it and change it as you feel necessary. I'm pretty sure the online dealers have the magpul version for a lot less than walmart also. I bought the magpul version from walmart last October for $1150 I believe. I feel sick knowing that the price has come down so much but I'm very happy with the rifle so I'll live. I'd jump on these prices before something crazy happens and the prices go back up.

It's the best deal on an AR rifle the market has ever seen.

PSA is selling Aimpoint Pros for 356.00 or so-which is a hell of a deal. I might get another as a backup at that price. And they are usually now sold in the flat top config-hard to actually find one with the carry handle now (cost more to add them).

CDNN has this one

http://www.cdnnsports.com/6920mp-223...fde-16-fl.html

It has the Magpul furniture you like plus it comes with a case, 4 extra mags and a rebate for a free Carhart Jackett with the Colt logo for $949.99

That deal KalashniKEV posted is a little bit better than CDNN but both are still good deals for a 6920.

Aim surplus has Spike tactical plain AR15 for $800.00 if don't want the Magpul furniture on (great rifle for the money), The Spikes has a flat top to mount optics so you can have rifle and red dot (Aimpoint pro) for just a hair over $1200.00.

If you can swing the money, like the $1200.00 you were looking at, swing on over to BCM and have a look see. You can order a BCM lower from one of several different on-line vendors and have it shipped to your local LGS for transfer. Then, you can choose a BCM upper from hundreds of different configurations.

The standard patter AR15s are nice, but there are newer, nicer, softer-shooting AR patterns out there. Don't be so hung-up on a standard AR15 patterned carbine, before you look around and see what is available.

Really. With the plethora of different ARs, you could end up with a serious case of buyer's remorse if you don't look and see what is out there on the market. 6920s are fine, but they're plain-Jane. You can "build" (I hate using that term) an AR that is exactly what you want.....if you take some time to see what is out there, and what you really want.

I would swing $1200 for a piston style AR, or a TAVOR, or Aug, or SCAR.

I would not spend that range for a regular style AR. $800 or less is what is reasonable for a AR to me. I also have no issues buying used.

The key components to the AR are the BCG, trigger group, and the barrel. Everything else is just holding it together.

Good luck.
