    Got a Colt 6920MP at Walmart (only store I could find with them still in stock). I originally wanted a 6920, but with the future uncertain, I opted for the Magpul furny (especially the PMags).

    Thanks to everyone here for creating a detailed and vast base of knowledge from which to learn! It was a huge help in weighing my decision!

    Congrats! I got my Colt LE6920 this summer because I saw the writing on the wall a long time ago. Im glad I got it. I wasnt 100% sure about it at the time since it was $1100 but you cant find an LE6920 today even if you had $2000+ in my area.

    They had plenty at this Walmart. Two Colts.

    I would have bought one a long time ago but I just graduated and started my big boy job. Cut into the house savings to get one before I can't.

    Check their back room stock. They had no Colts on display, and the website said non in stock, but I stopped by the counter and they checked the computer. The two there arrived in September - had they been in the case I'm sure they would have sold by October.
