    currently have a Colt 6920.. and boy do I love it. Only mod was I dropped in a new rail, sling, and optic.
    Question is due to the current political climate I will be picking up another one. Below are my choices. I’d love to hear your thoughts:

    Get another Colt6920 — set it up exactly how I have the first one
    Get a back up of a Smith and Wesson M&P Sport
    Or build



    Thanks in advance.

    You can't go wrong either way. What's a 6920 going for right now?

    Bulds are more fun. And maybe a little cheaper.

    Gunbroker $1099
    With magpul furniture $1399
    I’m old school on my first one still have a quad rail.
    Leaning colt since if SHTF I’d assume it will not only hold its value but will greatly increase.
    IF I went smith and Wesson I could get a magpul one for $799 and dump the rest into mags, ammo and a optic.
    Build I’d pick up a BCM lower and just wait until I can find the right upper to pair with it.

    Only your 2nd? You have to do a lot of catching up. Forgo all further activities and concentrate on getting more :D

    Look into something like a rock river national match. Long distance accuracy is fun and an important thing to have. We shoot those 75/77 grain bullets 600 yards with crazy accuracy, sometimes just using irons.

    Rock river gives you very good bang for moderate buck IMO

    And they're a little less scary than carbines. Who knows, with the long 20" barrel maybe the government will give them a pass

    Please understand that I know little about AR's other than having shot my 6920 a few times, so my question is honest. What would "the right upper" be for the BCM? Thanks.

    Build is out of the question if you are not intimately familiar. Most people that “build” them do a terrible job and assemble a hobby grade turd that will fall apart or have problems. Spend 2 hours in the range and you’ll see countless builds self destruct and fall apart.

    So... just buy a quality piece. With the incoming administration I would definitely buy the Colt. It will be worth 3-4 times what the smith will be worth in any ban.

    Why get an identical AR? There are so many choices that give you versatility. You can get something set up for competition from the factory, go shot barrel, or even go way out in left field and get a different caliber. My AR's are all pretty different from each other, and it's pretty fun having options.

    A BCM upper. With a BCM BCG.

    In all seriousness ....

    my route for a build would actually be an Aero Precision complete lower and a BCM upper/BCG.

    my route to buy would be BCM recce or Daniel Defense.

    buy an extra BCM BCG or two and tuck them away for safekeeping.

    Went with another 6920 with the magpul.
    Like I said I love my original 6920 with just the DD drop in quad, sling, and optic. We shall see what I think of the magpul furniture set.

    thanks for all the feedback.

    ... good choice.
