    If I were looking for a hard use gun between the two I would choose Colt.

    Buds offers the Les Baer police special for $1099, and the Colt 6920 for $1249. No way I could justify NOT spending the extra $150.

    Do your homework, these are only OPINIONS, but I think you will find most people regard Colt as one of the top ARs.

    Are those your only options? Why not consider BCM or LMT?

    I would consider other makers in that price range. Look at Noveske, BCM, LMT, and KAC.

    If you are stuck on those two definitely go Colt.

    The Les Baers are some of the most accurate AR15's on the market. If squeezing the last bit of accuracy out of the rifle is your goal, Baer is your answer.

    The Colt is a bit looser in tolerances, and is better suited to using military ammo under field conditions. If that fits your needs better, go that route.

    I bought a Colt 6920 and I will never regret it. It was the rifle I always wanted and I got one a lot quicker than I thought I would. The only other AR I would buy is probably a Noveske. I wish the ACR's were cheaper cause now I want one of them.

    Even if it was $1000 cheaper, I still wouldn't want one with the 1:9" non-chromed barrels Bushmaster has put in them. It took an epic fail to turn a rifle so many people were excited about into an overpriced pos.

    Yes that's Les Baer in all his tactical wisdom, as told to him by real deal uber Special Forces types...:rofl:

    But paper targets and pasture poodles will never care.:rofl: And that is the only thing that Baer AR's should be EVER used for.

    I do believe a Baer AR made it into a big name gun rag that way. That was
    JUST about as funny as the HK USP adverisment in '94 with the cartridge
    loaded backwards in the mag! :rofl:

    A mid-length gas rifle from Noveske, Daniel Defense or Bravo Company is actually probably better than a 6920. The 6920 is the standard, but standards can be exceeded. I wouldn't buy a Colt with Noveske's going for $1500 or so.
