So... Poking around on some dealer backends, I see Colt has a new model called the LE6900 Light Carbine with an MSRP of $900, where the 6920 has an MSRP of $1400.
That means a street price of like $850 or less.
What did they leave off to make it cheaper? No FA ala S&W Sport? No sights? Gasp... Not milspec?
