Yea the idea of a monolithic upper is cool, but they're pretty expensive...I know colt's variant, the 6940, is like an additional 700+ bucks!

I'll have a look at Noveske

Anyone know where to pick up one of these at a discount? I know that request is almost ludicrous...maybe a military discount?

Not gonna happen. Buyers have been looking for quite some time - no dice.

What happens to a dealers inventory if a new ban becomes law? Would those weapons be grandfathered in? I figured they would be scared to carry too many in stock because they'd be stuck with them and only able to sell to LE if the ban went into effect...

I want one.......

OK new question! I was just looking at the Colt again and was wondering...if the barrel part of the gun doesn't have a lower rail, can you attach a bipod to it? I kinda want to use this with one of those sometimes...

EDIT: Another related question...can a rail system be added in place of the blocky foregrip on the barrel?

And another...Let's say I wanted to acquire a supressor down the road...could the barrel be modified to accept it? (Threading?)

I found out the answers to above...


I need an opinion. I think this guy is asking too much for this rifle (though it seems to have everything I want)...what does everyone think?

In all honesty (and I can't believe I'm going to say this) that is not a bad deal for that rifle right now. Since it is available, that makes a difference. If it were any other time I'd tell you it was a few hundred bucks over priced. He's including spare stock parts too, which is nice to have (and possibly resell).

What about value for money? Could I build something better for cheaper?

I would build something. For the same price you can get an LMT or Noveske monolithic upper, a lower, LPT, stock and have 100 bucks left over. Colts are great, but 2000 is just insane. Weren't 6920's going for 1200 not too long ago?

Daniel defense is the cream of the crop. The specs there are ones you'll want to look for. However the Colt u listed is a pretty damn good deal for the moment.

Thanks for the DD info...it does look like a top-notch unit and its priced reasonably. I'm going to wait a few days and see what happens with that Colt...if I can swoop in on it at that price, I'll grab it. If not, I'll look closer at these...

OK another opinion needed.

I think I'm gonna buy a Colt...I've researched the other options and this seems like exactly what I want. I shot one on sunday as a matter of fact (a 6920)

Now...I can either get the 6920 (16 in. barrel) this week OR I can get a 6921 (14.5 in. barrel) and wait like 4 months for the NFA paperwork to get back while my rifle is locked up in the gunshop.

My dream was to always own an authentic M4A1, but seeing as that's impossible, I want the closest legal thing to it. I think the M4A1 has a 14.5 in. barrel which is why I'm sorely tempted to wait and get the 14.5...

On the other hand, the 16 in. will be more accurate, I don't have to wait on it, and I don't have to waste $200 on a damn tax stamp.

I don't know what to do...I think I'll probably just get the 16 in. unless someone talks me out of it. Anyone have any comment?

what about a 14" barrel with a flash suppressor on it? that way it meets requirements of a 16", but you actually have a 14". But I think there is a stipulation the flash suppressor has to be permanently fixed in place. I'm still trying to decide what I want to do. I have a lead on a S&W stripped lower, or order a stag complete and wait till August at the earliest.

I thought about that, but I may want to add a real suppressor later and that would require me to remove the flash suppressor so it can't be permanently affixed.

I've heard a ton of good stuff about STAG so I don't think you can go wrong there...maybe try gunbroker to get it sooner?

I have looked on gunbroker some, but didn't see any, or if I did they were already sold...I think I found some on AZ, just waiting to hear from a local FFL holder about a transfer and how that all works. My fingers are crossed they are still in stock!
