    nice colt, if you don't mind how much was it?
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    I paid $987 for my colt le6920, but I got a discount 10%. mine didn't come with a adjustment tool also. the army taught me how to use the bullet, in 1974. but i did buy one from midway supply. $9 bucks.
    I did cheat this time, to change out the front sight post. for the kns sight post. It's for sure a better post than the old style, square-fat post.
    The little 0.52 ball is much better.

    Including a sight tool would be nice, but not really a necessity.

    In 1976 we had M16A1's the height was adjusted by the front sight post onle,rear was windage only,we used a bullet tip.
    You are chastising Colt,but none of the other manufacturers throw in a front sight adjustment tool.kinda like a solution for a problem that didn't really exist.
    People that buy AR's and never served usually aren't aware of other options so when they see a "tool" they think it's a necessity

    I recall the drill on the firing line in basic having a firing pin in his pocket to do it with. Bullet works. So does anything hard and pointy.lol

    Did they SAY they were going to include a front sight adjustment tool?

    If not, then what are you complaining about?
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Not sure that anyone includes a FS tool with their rifles.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    While the tool can be considered not needed by some it is nonetheless a tool. Granted it is a specialty tool and in life there are such tools. One that comes to mind is a chain pliers which is rarely used but rather useful if needed. The front sight tool does have purpose(other than adjusting) such as: one might want to change the front post sight and this tool would come in handy.

    As too the snide remarks by some please see forum general rule #2

    Yes, I know there are some way around using the tool to adjust the sight but not as quick and easy. Shame on you Colt.

    I don't feel bad for you. When I bought an Armalite M15 it only included one 30 round magazine, a sling, an instruction manual, and a hard case to store it in.

    I finally got to pull the trigger on this new colt LE 6920, I've been waiting for rains to make it safer to shoot, everything has finally gotten some of the rainfall we have desparatly needed here, but
    it has given me time to get the pasture mowed and get some new target stands made.
    I only took, 4 boxes of ammo, but had a blast. al but myself, no distractions.colt1.jpg
    I'd also like to show the big game shooting bench i got for $99.00 well worth it. bench2.jpg
    Today was a good day.
