Hard to beat a base weight of 6 pounds. Tack on a T-1, sling and forward mount point, light and mount and you'd still be running relatively light.
What do I need to order to float the guards on a weenie rifle like mine? That is, what do you recommend?

Several good makers like Daniel Defense, Centurion and others. Just need to change your barrel nut and some other components. Better people that me can comment on that.

The biggest thing that worries me about this gun is the muzzle lift it can have when fired rapidly. Now, I've not been to rifle school, so I don't know if that would remedy my concerns, but would a free-float handguard make this worse?

The Colt 6720 is a light barreled 6920. Not to be confused with the 6721. The 6720 can be had for around $1,100 without looking too much.

You would need a free-float rail system. Several manufacturers make them. The easiest to install would probably be the Daniel Defense Omega, since it does not require you to remove anything but the handguards. It clamps in using the barrel nut and delta ring and then the two halves screw together. There are also set screws that tension it against the barrel nut.

Note that I don't really see where you NEED free-float at all. A free float fore-end would likely not heat up as much as the plastic handguards, but I doubt you would notice a difference most of the time.

Changing handguards will have absolutely no impact. If you want a little bit better recoil control, swap the carbine buffer that is almost certainly in it for a heavy buffer. The H1 or H2 should both work fine and cost $30 or less from damn near anybody. Besides that, you can look at different muzzle devices, but bottom line is that they do dance around when fired very rapidly.

Ahh, thanks for the reminder. Keep thinking of the 6520s in our patrol rifle inventory.

Don't forget you will need to change your sling mounts from your current setup to support a MS2.

Orly?

What would need to be done? Does the sling come with the necessary hardware?

It does not.

You need this guy, or similar.

http://store.magpul.com/product/MAG500/53

If you want to run it as a two point, you would need a forward attachment point. If you free float, it would be an RSA or similar..

If you like a single point sling (I do) and you want to support a brother copper, contact Dep Brian Alford at Tuscarawas County (OH) S.O., he makes custom slings and other nylon tactical stuff.

I have one of his single point slings and it is very nice indeed.

Impressions out of the box: I cannot say enough good things about the AIMPOINT PRO. I think it will put Eotech and Trijicon's Reflexes on the back burner.

Do you like the light in the position and is it fairly easy to activate. You can look a few pages back and see my setup with the TLR1 on the bottom rail. What bi-pod is that? I had to sit a few days ago with my Eotech on a guy for about 35-40 minutes resting the gun on the mag which was a bit unsteady. I want a bi-pod which means I would have to move the light on the side, but don't want to spend $200 on one.

Few officers I know of have had problems with that sling always coming undone where it connects to make it a single point. They bump the bungee or whatever and the sling comes completely open. Be better off getting a blue force gear single point with magpul ASAP adaptor. My 2 cents.

I love the light where its at, and its easy to activate lefty or righty. The DD rail holds it out wide enough andits mounted far forward enough that there's no shadow over the front sight or muzzle at ten feet +

The bipod is the Leaper's UTG tactical. Comes with everything you need, it fits in the m4 magazine pouch on the side of most soft cases, it has held up fine after three range sessions, its easy on easy off and it cost under $25.

I have a ginormous need/desire for a Colt 6720 ... unfortunately, I have a tiny wallet and cannot afford it. And ... I don't want to go without a patrol rifle while I try to sell/part out my M&P to get the cash.

Screwed.

Really want that lightweight rifle. BAD.

Anyone have a photo of a TLR-1 mounted at the 12 o'clock position?
