    I would like to get your opinion on the LMT STD16 Carbine and the Colt AR6920. Both are NIB and the LMT comes with a SOPMOD stock for $899. The Colt AR6920 is $1199. Is the Colt worth the extra $300?

    Depends on your use, if it will be a duty rifle it may be worth it but, I think the LMT will work just fine for most applications. The things that may need changing to aid reliability are low cost springs and buffers. Drop in a Wolff extra power extractor spring and a SSS or Tactical Springs buffer spring with an H2 buffer, the rest should be fine.
