I still don't know for sure. I like the looks of the Colt 6940, but I think it may be outside my price range.

Just called two different gun shops today and found out that they do not have the 6920 or 6940 in stock.

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

I owned a colt and now own an RRA in predator pursuit. Got rid of the colt. It couldn't hang with the RRA in accuracy. Sorry those are the facts in my experience. I do have a jewell trigger and a few other goodies but really the colt could not even come close. colt was picky on ammo. Granted I shoot home rolled for my RRA but it will shoot most good and a few incredible. like 1/2 moa out to 600 when i do my part on the wind good.

Buy it off the net and have it shipped to a gun shop. I gave you the link to Grant at G&R tactical give him a call if he dosent have the colt tell him your price range and ask him what he can do for you he is a great guy and easy to deal with. HE can build you a rifle out of all the parts you want I have had him do it two times.

Im not supprised by that, you have a better trigger and you hand loaded for it. What model was the Colt? The colt 6920 is essentaly the same rifle issued to the soliders with the exception of the longer barrel. THe military standard for iron sights at 100 yards is 5" with the M4 carbine. All of them will shoot one ragged hole at that range. The M4 is not a target rifle and it is designed for combat accuracy not shooting groups. That said if you have an ACOG on your rifle you will not have and issue putting rounds on an 800M torso.

I may just give him a call. Doesn't look like he has anything in stock right now though. Everything I clicked on said out of stock.
