    My coworker just picked up a new 6920 (obtained through a LEO dealer). The barrel has a gold circle on top under the fsb. Is there any significance to this marking?

    That's Colt's secret self-destructing implant that they put on all their new rifles. The rifle can sense when a civilian owns it, so it will then self-destruct because Colt hates us.

    The dot of yellow paint is put there to show the gas port has been drilled.

    Huh. I’ve never noticed that on mine. I’ll have to dig it out and have a look see.

    Mine has a very small trace of it , I’m sure it was a lot more visible at one point in time but my barrel has been hot a few times.:50cal:

    Quality control marking.
