Colt Defense produces the same rifles with the same great quality. Some have different markings/rollmarks.
The only difference between a LE6920 and a 6920 are the markings on the lower. During the AWB years Colt manufactured the 6920 with all the evil features that were banned for civilian sales and sold them only to those legally able to buy rifles under the ban such as police departments. After the ban expired, these "LE" marked rifles were desirable because folks thought they were cool so Colt continued to make them with these markings. Colt at one time discontinued the LE marked guns but brought them back due to popular demand. Recently Colt said it was discontinuing the production of the LE marked guns again, but I still see them out there. There must be some still in the distribution network trickling out.
The current crop of "LE" guns will be marked M4 Carbine but will have LE in the serial number prefix. They will lack the "restricted military/government law enforcement use only" roll mark on the right side of the mag well. They also won't have the model name of "Colts Law Enforcement Carbine" but instead will have "M4 Carbine" stamped on the left side of the gun. There are some transitional guns that will lack the right side "restricted" magazine roll mark but will still be marked "Colt Law Enforcement Carbine". These are pretty cool and will likely be collectable down the road.
As I posted before this is what they looked like when the ban was in place I have seen sellers trying to get 1600 or more for them just because of the stamp Maybe some would pay 600 more of it but I would not pay a dime more. It is still the same weapon.
Attachment 64828my walmart has them, here is the one I got from them, ie walmart
Wether or not YOUR Walmart carries them will depend on location. Big city, probably not, in the smaller towns out towards the country, you bet.
Darn nice looking gun. One day I'll get one.
LOL, it's a 20 yr old BSA. And it worked out really well. It still has the orig. battery in it also..... I bought it from midway, back in the 90's never used it till now.
The red dot is really sharp, it only goes to a starburst on the #12 high setting. I am waiting for the vortex strikefire to come on and then it's back in the closet again.
But for around $50 bucks 20 yrs. ago it's not bad. it held zero after 100 rds and took it off and back on for another 100 rds. still on zero. if i could buy it again I'd say yes.
It has a 1/2 riser rail under it, for co-witness. the only bad thing and I would say due to age is the optics are blue. but then again, it worked.
Just got an LE6920 with Magpul furniture at Wally-World this evening! :danceban:
A Magpul'ed Colt for about $1.1k is a great buy :yup:
So I'm going to try not to hurt the pig too much when I empty it so I can re-use it to start re-filling for the next thing on my wishlist :hand5:
Do new manufacture Colts still have the larger hammer and trigger pins and the lower block like they did years ago?
A 6920 for around $1100? Not a bad price if you are in the market. I personally can't stand WalMart, but if I was in the market, I could stomach it for long enough to make the purchase.
