The new g2x puts out over 200 lumens and is an awesome light. Are you using an older model?

I have the MS3 sling on it now with a "lock" for the hook, but I'll see what happens. I decided to try the single point sling/ASP because the 6720 doesn't have a side swivel like the 6920. The 0.625 pencil barrel side swivels are impossible to find. I don't like the way by Vickers sling works using the normal swivel, so I went the "new" for me route. This upcoming class is going to be a testbed for a few things.

I have an older G2 light with the incandescent bulb. The one on my other rifle is the old style too.

I have played with the idea of MOE handguards, but never really felt the need yet. The Colt/stock M4 style ones feel good to me, and have double heat shields. They are pretty light too. I am going to put the money towards the optic and light first I think.

Good deal, wasn't sure how the ms3 attached and wanted to give ya a heads up.

The moe guards are double heat shielded as well. I had impact install a qd mount in the guard for my two point and it works awesome. Fwiw.

What kind of optic you looking at?

Nice! What kind of rail section/light mount is that?

got the MC-G33 light in today. This thing is bright. Makes my stream light seem like the old weak maglights. I got it with the pressure switch cap also. Seems like the pressure switch isn't the toughest thing out there. I'll play with it in the next few days with the clicky switch then throw it on one of my other rifles with the pressure switch and see how it does.

BTT - ordered my 6720 last night. Should have it in a day or so!

I considered a 6920 with the Magpul bits, but I got an awesome deal (less than $1000 OTD) on the lightweight rifle instead. Also, everyone wanted $1500 to $2000 for an LE6920...WTF? I could care or less about the roll mark...

I'll likely follow CW's lead with a sling of some sort, light mount, and leave it alone. Gotta let the bank account recover first though. After those mods, paychecks will go to ammo and training. TIGBSMFF!

If it's packaged like my 6920 was, it should have a sling, cleaning kit, and two 20-rd mags with it.

That's what mine had. Two 20 round PMAGs and the GI style cleaning kit.

I had day two of instructor class, 6720 is doing fine. It gets hot quick in long strings of fire, and the Magpul rail shot loose. Tends to climb/jump more than the normal M4gery, but dang is it nice to have a light rifle after holding a high ready for ages.

I'm liking it a lot so far.

it's a Surefire G2 in a Viking Tactics mount on a 5 slot pice of Magpul rail. Pretty light, but a bastard to get on there right, and it shot loose today after about 100 rounds of fairly rapid fire. I got it tight again, but I'm not too amused with it. If it shoots loose again, I'm ditching it for something else.

Thanks. Yeah, I was looking at a Troy Battle Rail today; $170 and the shop will install it for free. I only plan on mounting a light, but still; I'd rather have something solid, even if it's not for duty use.

ETA: Yours came with PMAGs? Mine just came with the regular metal Colt mags. Must have been an older production run that the distributor still had in stock when the local shop ordered it.

I'll be buying my first AR in the next month. Several good choices out there. Looking at the SW mp15 and a colt or bushmaster.

Having owned the S&W and now Colt, I'd say go with the Colt if you can afford it. Mil-spec counts for duty use.

Excellent choice.

If you decide you want some magpul bits, head to shadez of gray tactical. He is a LEO here and has excellent prices.

You can sell the colt carry handle, handguards, grip and stock and fund magpul replacements almost 1 for 1. You may even make money.

I highly recommend the Magpul MS3 sling with ASAP. I also highly recommend a MOE handguard and scout mount for the light. Cheapest best option for you.

Sadly, the events in Colorado might be the kick in the *** that some of these reluctant chiefs need to get behind their own rifle programs. The irony of that is politicians are trying to take rifles away from citizens in the same breath.

If you have to wait for a tragedy such as this, it's too late. If your Department doesn't have a rifle program, lobby for one. If your Department does have one, by all means, do what it takes to get on the cadre, then train, train, train...

That coupled with a few events around here really changed my perspective on things. I am purchasing my own rifle in the coming weeks for use on the road.

It really can happen anywhere, I'd rather have what I need when I need it.


Cj, that's what I'm told. I am shopping around.

Indeed. The Aurora chief did an interview and said he never dreamed he'd have to deal with something like this. But his department trained anyway.
