There is absolutely a market for take-off parts for a couple reasons:

1) Home Builds
2) Replacing Take-Offs You Already Sold
3) Making your gun "as good as a Colt."

M4Carbine.net has a pretty good EE and those prices were valid the last time I was active on there (which has been a while). Since Colt makes among the most squared away rifles, so they make among the most squared away components. Folks will pay for them.
I love pencil barrels.

This gun isn't cased and in a trunk but I ran one in a Galati XT with no issues on a 9 o'clock mount.

My X300 has never turned on to my knowledge in the case.

I'm with the Dept. of Corrections and work inside so no rifle obviously. But the outside enforcement vehicles and towers use the HK G36.

I am very close to scoring a Colt 6720. Probably go pretty minimal on it in order to keep weight down. My current M4gery is around 8.25 lbs with all it's junk, and unloaded. I went back to regular M4 handguards and lost some weight ... But not enough to make me happy.

I'm going on a patrol rifle diet so to speak. Also going to give the Magpul ASP and sling a shot. Want an aimpoint micro later on.

After 2 years of coveting ... Almost there!

Colt 6720 ordered, plus a few odds and ends from Bravo Company USA. Pics as soon as it gets in and is put together.

Looked at a friends Aimpoint Micro. Makes my Comp M2 look and feel like a bloated pig, lol ...

Anyone have/use a Surefire M500LT dedicated forend? Other than the super high price, 700 lumens appeals to me, working some real BFE areas. Just want some serious feedback before I even contemplate a light that costs 2/3rds of a rifle.

I would shy away. Greg McGee engineering MC-G33 XM Limited in a ring on a Magpul scout mount. Entire thing is less than $100.

It's my patrol belt light at the moment. Bright as eff. ONLY downside is it gets HOT after extended runs on high.

Here it is in a IWC mount. I think these mounts are $40 or so. The light can be had from Greg for $60-65 without the charging kit.

This is my buddy Jer's gun.

I too am considering a 6720. I can't find a 6920 in stock but the pencil barrels seem to be a bit more prevalent.

Cochese, I'm going to look into that Greg McGee light. It fits in a V70 holster, yes?

The MC-G33 does but its tight. A little fine grit sand paper loosens it up. The M3-2L does not fit.

I've had mine for over a month now on patrol. It is pretty badass. I wanted to pick up a new SF 6P but there is no real reason to with this. It is as bright as the new SL20 and brighter than my SL20 with a Terralux drop in.

So what's the difference between the Colt SP6920 and LE6920? I might have a trade deal worked out on a SP6920.

The roll mark is the only difference. Same gun.

the LE version has super secret squirrel stuff in it. The SP is for those lowly civilians

No difference. Buy either one and enjoy. The last SP6920s that I saw were stamped "M4 Carbine", which may be a more desirable rollmark anyway.

Thanks, guys. Picked it up today; marked "Sporter" on one line, then "M4 Carbine" below. I'll post pics a little later.

That's an odd choice for sure!

Bushmaster XM15 with basic magpul furniture ie B.A.D. lever, MOE handgrip, trigger guard, and AFG. Streamlight TLR-3 is doing me well so far; went thru approximately 2k rounds during quals/SRT quals, and the light hasn't budged a bit nor needed to be re-tightened.

I know most people aren't a huge fan of bushmaster, but she's done right by me and I have yet to experience any type of failure or malfunction out of her yet, and she has just shy of about 5k rounds thru her. I've been less than gentle with my rifle, but have always maintained it, and I think that's a major part of it.

Please excuse the low quality cell phone picture.

Colt 6720

Here it is, came in a few hours ago ...

It's already been modified from stock. It has the Magpul ASP plate and MS3 single/double point sling. I also threw on a Bravo Company Gunfighter Mod 1 grip, a 5 slot chunk of Magpul POE rail, a Surefire G2 in a Viking Tactics mount, and a Norgon Ambi-catch.

For what its worth ...

The Magpul rail is a pain in the ass to put on the handguards compared to the Midwest Industries stuff I have used on other handguards. I had to sandwich the nuts between the heat shields for a good fit, and use the MI nuts instead of the Magpul ones. Magpul says they should work on most - but Colt must not be "most." Fail for that thing on non-MOE stuff.

Norgon ambi-catch is a real no-go with the Magpul BAD lever. The BAD's arm is too damn close to the Norgon's release lever. Might try a Troy sometime and see how it works. $$$$ Needed. I dumped the BAD for now.

New Viking Tactics mounts seem cheesier than the one I got 4 years. Lot more flex in them, so we'll see how it holds up.

Surefire G2. It works okay, and will work for now until I get $$$ for more. Because of impending CALEA hilarity, our weapons options are being seriously limited. As of right now, it appears only Surefire and Streamlight lights are allowed. I'm not happy, and waiting to see how it shakes out. I am going to drop in an LED 200 lumen upgrade in the G2 ASAP.

Anyways ... the 6720 is LIGHT. I want to keep the rifle light, and its definitely a feather compared to my M4 and obviously an M14. Soon as I can, the Comp M2 that will go on it will be exchanged for a T1/H1 micro. That effing M2 is HEAVY compared to the new units. I am keeping it as light as possible with as little modifications or expensive addons as I can. It's set up the same as my other M4gery in case I need a spare, etc.

Rogers Super-Stock. It's like a CTR on a diet. Serious diet, and locks up TIGHT. The levers seem a hair more exposed, so we will see how they hold up. I'm not going to replace it right now with a CTR or MOE like I planned. It's light years better than the standard carbine stock they used to have!

MaTech BUIS. Seems a little flimsy, the whole "pry it up" to get it in action thing feels wrong. But it IS adjustable, light and fairly low profile. I'll run it until it breaks or I get bored/rich and get another Troy. At least it has the small aperture on it.

Here is a crappy cell phone picture for now.

Cop Talk

Hopefully Saturday I can get it zeroed. It's going to go straight to carbine instructor class on Monday to break in.

I like it. CALEA??? CSP?????

Abandon hope, all ye who enter.

If they restrict you to SF and SL lights then look at this guy.

http://www.surefire.com/6px-a-bk.html

And call SF directly for LE pricing. You can sell the G2 for as much as the new one would cost direct from SF. Throw it up on www.ar-15.co in the marketplace and someone will snag it. I just sold my MS2 in a day.

I really like the looks of the Rogers Stock. I'd like to try one out, although I REALLY want a Magpul UBR.
