I carried a department issued colt for a while. Nothing but problems. Lost faith in the gun. Bought a 6920. Same thing. Nothing but problems. Sits in a safe now and comes out for plinking. Don't trust my life with it. Finally built this to use. Several thousand rounds later not a single hickup.

Hmmm you must have had the worst luck ever with the pony's.... I have three (LE6520, LE6721 & LE6920) in the safe and used to have a Department Issued one. All have been 100% reliable with the only issues being operator error (gloved paw in front of ejection port) or bad magazines. My brother also runs a Colt LE6920 thats been 100% too although he's not a high round count shooter like I am.

Anyway here's mine. Just finished the upper about 12hrs ago.

Upper: Colt M4 Stamped, Troy TRX Extreme Rail 11", ARMS #40L BUIS (I like the CQB notch on them), Magpul Front BUS, DD 1/7 M4 profile barrel, M3X Weapon Light (Was free or I'd go LED), Magpul AFG (might scrap this for more weight savings). Soon to have EoTech placed on it after my next range trip.

Lower: Colt LE6721, VLTOR Mod Stock, VTAC Sling, MIAD Grip.

Cop Talk

This is the old Upper LE6721 1/9 HBAR DD Omega Rail EoTech and M3X. This pic is a year and a half old before I switched to the Mod Stock. The upper is still in tact and is my range plinker now.

When we first got patrol rifles (many years ago) they were Colt AR-15 A2 Gov't Carbines. Brand New. We took them out to run them through our paces. Every single rifle jammed with almost every round for the first couple of mags. Finally started to loosen up and we would have jams only once or twice per mag. After about 500 rounds per gun they would start to run smoothly. I felt better, then took two of them to a school. Both crapped out in the school. Only rifles that crapped out. There were guys with old M16A1s, bushies, RRA, and even an Oly. All ran fine except for the new Colts. It was pretty embarrassing.

Bought my 6920, had the same problems up until about 500 rounds in. Lost faith in that gun also. Decided to build one and haven't looked back since.

Current Patrol Rifle ... started as an M&P15-A, which as been more or less upgraded/modified to an X model. It has the Troy rails, with Magpul covers. I run an Aimpoint Comp M2, and a Surefire G series light. It's a Vicker's 2 point sling, and lets see ... MIAD grip, and a sweet Young Manufacturing hard chromed M16 bolt and carrier. I have an AFG that's on there now. Oh, and it has the KNS pins and some other odds and ends too.

Cop Talk

And this was the other patrol rifle ... a USGI M14 made by H&R Arms. Had the blonde birch stock, and was bone stock, down to the happy switch when I first got it. When they took it away to give to a guy who didn't have a rifle, it was like a death in the family, followed by the urge to commit workplace violence on a biblical scale. I am over it now ... sort of ...

Cop Talk

And the whole long gun stable ...

Department Issued Bushmaster XM15E2S. I am somewhat limited on what I can I add to or modify so......

I added a Vicker's padded sling & Surefire M500 handguard light. The previous Officer to whom the rifle had been issued to added the CAA cheekrest on the buttstock. I am luke warm on it's practicality, but giving it a fair assessment before I decide whether or not to keep it.
Cop Talk

Since I was recently put in charge of the firearms program, I will make an effort to allow personally owned rifles. If so, I will swithc out to my personal gun...Colt 6933 (11.5" bbl), MagPul rear stock, Knights UVX handguard rail, Vicker's sling, LaRue rear sight, Aimpoint Micro T1 and Surefire Scout light.

I love my Aimpoint PRO. It's perfect for me. It comes as shown on my rifle. Rugged, versatile, and reasonably priced. I don't need 15 different brightness settings of the other models. It has 6 regular and 4 NV settings. I usually switch between the highest and next to highest brightness depending on dusk/dawn or daytime if I know I'll be doing high risk stuff. Battery lasts years. The night vision compatibility is nice to have for future toys. The quick(-enough) detach mount is solid and sets the red dot a little above the front iron sight. Good co-witness. $400. I know there are lighter solutions out there, optic and mount, but I don't sling that bad boy all day. I would recommend it without a doubt. I can send you more pics if you'd like. Just PM me.

Also have been looking at the larue index clips because they have the wire routing option also but I gotta get a new pressure switch for that method unlesss I want to hook it up with double sided tape.
I use Velcro on both my duty Colt & my personal one. Works well. Been running this way for the past 5 years or so.

Dang that blows...especially with some of the new 7.62 AR platforms out.Some of them give bolt guns a run for their money.
Do you know if 7.62 is allowed in Alaska?I watch that Alaska State Trooper show at times and man those guys are sometimes out in the boonies alone with dozens of brown bear...Screw that noise.

BTW thanks for the quick reply.

My agency has a fish cop side of it. Those officers will carry a 7.62. Most carry their personal ones. Usually an AR type platform.

For patrol use, I think that the .308 is a bit much for most situations. Diminished capacity, added weight, more concerns with over-penetration, etc. I think there is still a place for it in rural agencies, but in urban and suburban type agency it's probably a stretch.

...and if I was looking for an AR type gun to use against a bear I would prefer something like the .458 SOCOM.

Mmmmmm, I've got a Rock River Arms Pro-Series Gov't that came with a SureFire M951 light. Pray tell, how do you mount the pressure switch with inner tube? The velcro doesn't work for crap.

Anybody have any close-ups and procedure for that?

14" barrel 13" rail. Tax stamped lower, all built by me. Barrel had to be taken to a smith for cutting since it started as a 14.5 with welded flashhider.

Dept doesn't issue so we can pretty much get what we want on our guns since we pay for them.

Another idea for the pressure switch is black electrical tape over it, it holds up for me pretty well.

We're finally getting rifles for the non-SWATters! I go to training at the end of the month and can then carry the 6920 carbines we got. Hopefully rifle instructor and armorer school won't be far behind for me, as I am a Glock and MP5 armorer and instructor. It doesn't sound like we will be allowed any choice on sights, sling, optics or anything else on the guns. Being allowed to buy and carry our own is out of the question - legal mumbo-jumbo and hesitancy at higher levels, despite some of the state's largest agencies doing it with no problems. If it ever looks good for personal purchase, HK is getting some of my hard-earned OT money.
