    After many years, I finally pulled the trigger. *pun intended*

    Now, the never ending process of upgrading parts begins...

    I have recently started thinking of getting one myself. I need to learn how to run one first.

    I got a 6920 not long ago myself. Also have a 1983 Colt sp1.

    Great choice. I will keep mine stock.

    The only changes I made to my 6920 was a Hogue grip and a X300 Surefire light.

    Other than that, I don't see a need for anything else.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm considering a ton, but these are going to come first:

    1) PMAGS! PMAGS! PMAGS!
    2) BCMGUNFIGHTER Charging Handle (Mod 3)
    3) .22LR Conversion Kit or Dedicated Upper

    Don't fall into the trap of thinking that modifying your rifle will result in improvement in function. Seems that everyone buys a firearm and immediately starts changing it. Spend money on ammunition and range fees. Your competency with it will be improved with practice and not bells and whistles (optics excluded).

    Not just any black rifle, one of the best. Congrats, you are going to love it. Take this advice from me, shoot it a bunch and then figure out what you want. If you decide you want an optic, save and buy a quality one in the first place. Nice rifle.

    Edit- the .22 conversion kits kinda suck, my friends have have had nothing but problems with theirs.

    I agree, I probably should have used something other then "upgrade". It's going to be a slow process anyway, mostly because of the cost of optics etc.
