    I own a Colt LE6920 so take this with a grain of salt.

    To some extent what you’re paying for is some additional QC. The fit and finish on mine is “OK”, but that’s not what I worry about in these types of firearms. It's really what's on the inside that counts, F & F is for walnut and blued steel. When you look at rifles with similar features:

    MPI of ALL bolts and barrels
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magneti...cle_inspection
    Pressure tested barrels made from 4150 barrel steel
    1:7 barrel twist
    Chrome lined bore and chamber
    .556 chamber Vs .223
    Real M4 feedramps, not dremelled in after the fact
    Properly staked castle nut and gas key
    F-height front sight base
    Taper pins at the FSB
    Lifetime Warranty

    Some of the above affect reliability and some don’t, but there are only a couple companies that put them together the same way. This doesn't mean that any other company's ARs are "bad", it just means that in some cases Colt does more "right".

    Will the average shooter notice a difference? Maybe, maybe not.

    When you look at the prices, even for LMTs and CMMGs, the Colt prices aren’t that far off. Factor in resale value, and I think the Colts start to hold their own.

    Sabre Defence of Nashville, TN is on-line with their very own AR's
    as we speak. 85% of their weapons system is made right there
    in their factory in Nashville. Those who have been lucky enough
    to try one out, say its the best shooting AR out there. I got a
    free demonstration from Mr. David Power of Sabre Defence;
    and I'm convinced folks, as they have come to market with a
    very fine product. But, they ain't cheap; as prices start a'round
    $1795 for a basic AR-15~!
