    So having standards for a serious use rifle is cheesy? That sir, is ignorant.

    I have a Colt CAR Sporter with a light barrel. I paid a premium for it during the Clinton gun ban, but I have never regreted the purchase of it. It has never failed to fire nor has anything ever broke. That little Rampant Colt stamp on the side certainly says it all.

    I agree with Mr. Dooley.

    There has to be a reason why Colt is used by the military over all the other less exspensive brands like Bushmaster, Olympic Arms and DPMS. Granted, I realize that DEA just awarded a contract to Rock River, but Colt also has a contract with them.

    Gee, I wonder why nobody recommends a KelTec rifle for serious use. If anyone with a serious reputation is doing that, I am not aware. I am of the opinion that one should buy the best they can reasonably afford, as it's cheaper in the long run.

    Reasonably Afford means you only eat two meals per day instead of three. That includes your family too, as most American kids are too fat.

    Exclamation My "Cheesy" AR...

    Well, my "cheesy" Olympic Arms CAR-97 has been rockin' n rollin' since 1998...putting more than 20,800+ rounds ( 2,000+ per year ...YEA, I keep a notebook on each weapon) of lead down range. If it wasn't workin' 100%, I would have sold it by now !!

    5.56x45mm / 1:9 twist / 20" barrel...shown w/red dot scope for quick target acquisition, Pachmyer grips, OA 6 position stock




    "IT AIN'T EASY...BEING CHEESY !!"




    But, if ya want a COLT, get a COLT !!...( I got a few of them too!! )

    I have just got back from another window shopping binge.

    I looked at so many models.

    I have to say at this point so many dealers have told me to get a non colt ( especially when they didnt have any stock ). They told me colts are not as good as the ones they have on their shelves, their proprietary, they are yada yada. I was seeing through the BS.

    I did however go to my favorite store in town and he has Colts and I am completely sold on it.

    You know especially after reading that huge thread "All you ever need to know about an AR" or whatever it is called and some of the comments here, I have decided that Colt LE 6920 is my buy.

    Has all the stringent testing done on it, is fully milspec with a 1/7 rifling, m4 ramps, etc... Its actually chambered 5.56 and not just 223 which so many cheaper rifles have. Im not out to budget buy necessarily. And looking at the average prices across the board what is another 2-300 dollars for a fine fine piece of equipment.

    I also think the name counts. And most of all there about 20 in my area between all the gunshops so they have one now and I wont have to wait 9 months to get a rifle. I do certainly appreciate the feedback thus far.

    It will also make a hell of a Second Amendment militia ready defense Item in case we need to defend our soil whether it be foreign or domestic. ** OH great I did it now, I spoke about our rights, what if the libs read this. Im going to get targeted as an extreme right winger.. sigh ..

    I was also in the market for an AR and I did a lot of research as you are doing now. I looked at a lot of models and some of them tempted me but i just kept coming back to the Colt LE6920. After looking around in my area, i found that a lot of the gun stores here were expensive, one store had the LE6920 going for $1695 and another going for $1575, then the last stop of the day which was my favorite gun shop, they had them for $1449, so i took the plunge and got one. I cant wait to go and shoot it tomorrow. From what i have read and researched it seems like I have made the right choice. What do you guys think? All I know is im happy with my purchase and thats good enough for me, not to mention the Colt 6920 isnt to shabby either......Good luck on your choice, I would absolutely recommend this gun. Happy shopping.

    Im picking mine up this coming Monday. Same model. I will not tell you the price I paid at the request of my Dealer and my customer relationship. His retail price is 1499 though. What will hurt the most is having to buy a freaking 30 dollar box of 5.56 after spending that much on a rifle. I always hate that extra expenditure. Darn why isnt ammo free like welfare for illegals.

    Now I have no freaking idea if I want an ACOG or EOTECH/magnification scope combo sigh ...... and then a supressor and then green laser just cause it is freaking cool as heck. If someone contemplates a break in and they get green beamed from my window they may never set foot on my property again and live to keep it a secret haha. Im not out to take a life which is the last thing I would ever want to ask the lord to forgive me for but I sure would like a scary and functional rifle if destiny arrived in a bad way at my doorstep

    Here's another quality alternative to a Colt. It should hits the street soon and if it's half as good as their "M4" model, it will be a heckuva gun at a great price:

    LOL - no joke.

    Though now that I have 2 stock M4 setups I think I want a Recce build next... I'm thinking a BCM stainless middy barrel really does have my name on it...
