I think I found my AR - Colt 6920

I think I found my AR.. Any opinions? Everything I've already read/heard have been nothing but great, but I always like to hear from my forum pals. And prices on them have come back down so that's a plus too..

Colt is always a good choice. But I would also consider Bravo Company. their quality is in line with Colt and they have a life time warranty. Colt Does not.

Just want to put this as food for thought...

I have a Colt LE6920 and its my DI AR15 of choice.
As you will first see your Colt:



I clean this firearm after each shooting session and it has performed perfectly. Very happy with this DI AR15.

You may also want to consider gas piston AR15s before making the plunge, I also have a Ruger SR556 and its been a perfect performer. They are both around the same cost.


Typical first viewing of a SR556:




I really like to shoot my LE6920 but the SR556 is a sweet shooting midlength piston AR15.

Good luck with your decision! I could not decide and got both.

+1. Go Bravo. I have only had the chance to actually shoot one BCM build. I'm no metallurgist, but it seemed to be good quality to me.

CMMG offers a lifetime as well. Never fired a Bravo or a CMMG, but from what I have heard they are both high quality, hence the lifetime warranty, I would imagine.

Can't go wrong. Buy it, shoot the hell out of it and be happy. If you care about resale value then the Colt wins there, but as Alaskapiggy (hehe just messin with you dude your alright in my book and I'm jealous because you have cooler guns than I do) pointed out Bravo Company's lifetime warranty rules.

Also, don't put past building your own AR. It seems intimidating at first, but they are so simple that once you actually build one its practically embarrassing that you were first intimidated by the idea of building one. It potentially saves a lot of money building one or if you really go all out you get absolutely every piece and part you want making the perfect custom gun.

I had a bad experience with a CMMG lower (stripped) The pin holes were all very tight. I ended up busting the portion of the receiver that holds the trigger guard pin towards the pistol grip. That and it was super tight with PMags. Tight to the point you had to yank the mags out of the well. I will never try CMMG again.

Good point here. Colt has a lot of blindly devoted fan-boys so you should have less problem selling a colt should you want to get rid of it.

Is the BCM warranty transferable? If so... BCM for the win. A colt fan-boy would have a hard time turning down a transferable life-time warranty I think.

Warranties, smaranties. What good is a Bravo warranty, if Bravo's out of business? Small companies like Bravo don't tend to go on forever. I'm not enamored with Colt, and believe that I can build a rifle as good or better than any Colt ever built; however, I wouldn't recommend against the Colt, just because of a warranty. I believe Hi Point offers a lifetime warranty. You really think the warranty should be the deciding factor, when choosing a firearm?
