    Carbine. 16" HBAR. A3 handle. Brand new. $1124 delivered.

    Yes or no?

    Should I spend a little more to get the 6920 and do you think I'd be happier with it, or a non-HBAR?

    Got one in the stable. It's my wife's patrol rifle, actually.

    It's been flawless.

    Just call Steve and make the purchase!

    If not, then buy an LMT!

    That's pretty sweet.

    But wouldn't that be like getting an HK? It Colt better or worse than HK? Where do I stand? Am I tactical enough? Am I operator enough? If I have to ask all these questions, I probably cannot own it.

    I don't care for the front or rear sight on the 6940. I used a rifle length quad rail on my carbine along with a simple Vltor low profile gas block. The rails protect the gas block that replaced the FSB. This allows for a rifle length sight radius on a carbine OAL/16 inch barrel.

    You can also pick what sight apertures you prefer... JMHO.

    The 1:9 twist is one thing, but I found with my 6721 that the heavier barrel would weigh enough to get old after some hours in training or on perimeter.

    If you have to ask, you are not an operator. HK would have already sent you their rifle to your door with a package of XXS tee shirts and a 55 gallon drum of hair gel.

    Now you are going to get your daily dose of ding ding kicks just for mentioning their hallowed name without permission.

    I bought mine several years back, $750 out the door. Man, I miss those days.

    Wow! I was thinking anything around a grand is pretty good for a Colt these days.

    Regular Colts were $600 a pop and the HBAR or Match variants were $800 to $850 back in the day. How I miss them.

    There was a surplus store 10 minutes away from me that had 4 or 5 55-gallon drums stacked full of USGI 30 round M16 mags for $5 a pop, no limit.

    AK-47s were $200 each and SKSs were $100 each. People bought them up by the crate when the 1989 CA ban was passed. Those were the days.

    Same gun, $1095 SHIPPED:
    http://www.botachdefense.com/Colt-AR-15A3-Tactical-Carbine-AR6721-p/colt-ar6721.htm

    OR

    Step up to the 6920 for a whopping $5 more
    http://www.botachdefense.com/Colt-LE6920-Law-Enforcement-Carbine-p/colt-le6920.htm

    This is from Botach Defense, which is the LE/Military-only wing of Botach Tactical. They do have some smoking deals. They also have some terrible deals... you just gotta price shop. Their Colt prices, however, definitely fall into the "smoking deal" category.

    6721 gives you the 1/9 heavy barrel and the traditionally-located front sling mount. 6920 is the same gun but with the 1/7 barrel with the M203 cut, and a side-mounted sling mount. Only reason I can see to choose the 6920 is if you're shooting a >=69gr round.

    Any weight issues as a trunk gun? I've read on here that some folks don't think they are "balanced" as well as the 6920 and that "you'll really feel that 1.6-pound difference" or whatever it is.

    My wife went through two patrol rifle schools and several active shooter schools with it and I didn't hear her *****ing. Mine is a bit heavier with all the add ons and hers feels like a featherweight in comparison. I've been through 6 various classes with mine. But I have an LMT...

    As the resident Sally :), I certainly felt the front end weight with the heavier barrel profile. Didn't think I would but the 6721 I had also had an M500 so weight on the front end got to be an issue. Sort of like the SF models - you'd never think 3mm would make a difference but it does.

    Botac's prices are pretty good and about as low as you can get out there.

    More sense than brains, I guess, I'm eyeballing this beauty: http://www.specializedarmament.com/products/1_LE6920_Lightweight_Operator-885-2.html

    Hey OBX, did you see Steve's note?
