Colt rifle customers want the genuine article. They know that the story of today’s Colt commercial and sporting rifles began with the Stoner AR-15® design that Colt transformed into a military-grade rifle - the Colt M16 automatic rifle. First deployed in the early days of the Vietnam War, the M16 followed in the footsteps of its Colt ancestors, establishing the quality, reliability and performance benchmarks by which all tactical military rifles have since been measured.
Colt’s rifles are the only rifles available to sportsmen, hunters and other shooters that are manufactured in the Colt factory and based on the same military standards and specifications as the United States issue Colt M16 rifle and M4 carbine.
Took the M4 out to the range and put a couple hundred rounds through it. The shot is smooth and the brass ejects about the 3-4 o clock - classic military setup. However the cosmetics in some areas are crap. The muzzle device weld is very sloppy, one of the trigger guard pins is damaged, Daniel Defense does the gas key staking much better. The castle nut staking is barely even visible, and there are a bunch of abrasions to the finish, not straight scratches to the metal but still unsightly. Again, these are more cosmetic issues - which in the end are not the most important. But at this price, I would expect much better quality control but I guess we are talking about Colt here!. Just for perspective, a Daniel Defense M4A1 is $300 more than this model and is MILES above in quality. Everything I've mentioned, and much more, is way nicer and consistent.
Awesome gun. Super fast shipping. Great overall experience.
This rifle is AWESOME! This company has fast shipping and excellent service!
What can I say. The Colt 6920 has earned its reputation for being a solidly built, reliable rifle. Shoots great straight out of the box. Shipping was fast, too.
