    Colt 6920 vs 6721

    What is the difference between the Colt 6920 compared to the Colt 6721 other than the 6721 has a heavy barrel and a 1x9 twist?

    That's the basic difference. With the appropriate bullets, the 6721 will be more accurate than the 6920.

    6721 v. 6920

    The previous posters nailed it (twist, HBAR).

    I've owned both. Still have the 6920 and would buy another in a heartbeat.

    Didn't care for the extra weight of the 6721. Not one bit.

    Is there an advantage to an HBAR vs an m4 profile in a 16 inch rifle?

    Maybe in a bench rest rifle, but not in a carbine that's going to be carried and shot off hand.

    Accuracy. The pic below shows a comparison between a Colt 16" HBAR and a Colt 16" M4 (government profile) barrel. Three 10-shot groups were fired from each barrel at a distance of 100 yards. The 10-shot groups were over-layed on each other using RSI Shooting Lab and the mean radii were calculated for the 30-shot composite groups.

    My Colt 16" 1:9 HBAR far out shoots any of my M4 profile barrels from any maker. The weight difference means little to me.

    I have a HBAR while other 2 friends of mine have a M4profile and a lightweight....all of 3 are 16'' Colt carbines.

    during a dynamic shooting match I liked the extra weight of my hbar; the lightweight carbine recoil is too different for my taste.
    but the M4profile is the perfect compromise.

    I had to trade my 6721 because my daughter needed to shoot out to 600 yards. The 1 x 7 twist handles heavier rounds better than the 1 x 9.

    She used the my 6920 during her first match last June, afterthat I traded the 6721 for a RRA NM4....
