    Another Wally-World AR

    I've been eyeing a Colt LE6920 at Wal-Mart for a while, and finally (almost) decided to get it.

    Went in and saw, to my disappointment, an empty slot in the case where it used to be. I figured it couldn't hurt to ask if they had another one, and the lady checked inventory and said they had two more in the back. Then she told me the price, and it was $70 more than the one that was on display. Just as I was getting irritated over the bait-and-switch, she brought it out and I saw it had the Magpul furniture. All of a sudden, the extra $70 wasn't so bad, for the Magpul stock, handguard, vertical grip, and rear sight, plus two PMAG's.

    I'm a happy camper with my 2nd AR!

    Sorry, no pics yet...

    Regards,
    Jim

    Good snag. Walmart rules!

    Pics would be nice, so I could be very envious of you!

    Of COURSE it's real! There's a girl at the local market who looks AMAZING in her sweater. She is NOT required present any photos for me to be ABSOLUTELY convinced...that they are, indeed, real.

    I think it's great that Colt AR carbines are now available at Mr. Walton's General Store. What a country!

    OK, fellows:

    Not a great pic - I'm still learning the new phone, and didn't have a very good backdrop.

    I really like the feel of the Magpul forestock compared to my M&P 15, and the sights are pretty nice, too. Like I said, I'm a happy camper!

    Jim

    Nope! As has been mentioned earlier, without pics, they are NOT real - at least not to the rest of us!

    Glad you got one. I picked up the last one in stock at a local Wal Mart recently. They still don't have another.

    I just bought the same exact gun at my local gun shop for $1179 OTD (I'm assuming thats a decent deal). If you put your vertical fore end grip on yours let me know how you got the fore end off in order to mount it.

    I'm not knowledgble of ARs. Is the Colt $500 better than the S&W M&P Sport?

    One reason I bought the Colt was to find out the answer to that question!

    My M&P is not the Sport, though - I got the M&P 15OR. I'm not seeing the Sports around for $650 lately. Not seeing many of them at all, and those that I do see are more in the $850 range. Wish I'd bought one for $650 at Academy a few months ago!

    I think it's a safe bet I'd be able to get my money back out of either one of 'em!

    Jim

    Pull back on the delta ring(back of hanguard) and they should pull out. You may need someone else to help to get the hand guards off as it can be a tight fit.

    Another Wally-World AR

    I've tried it with some help. Very tight fit indeed.
