    $1100 not bad for this market. I've seen 'em priced $1600 online or at gun shows.

    I got one 3 years ago. It had a similar thick coating of oil. I blasted all the oil out of it with brake cleaner and cleaned it.

    These are good no frills rifles.

    I have always wanted a 6920 as a base line rifle to rate all the other rifles against (times and splits) and as a starter rifle for students. I had a Noveske N4 matched gun that was a 6920 clone done by Noveske and had to sell during a divorce unfortunately. Loved that rifle :-(

    Happy you got a good one!

    I have an early N4 model that Johnny ended up giving me / horse trading. That’s back when they had just started doing the Cross across the upper and lower to show it was manufactured as a complete rifle.

    Not new, but I have a lightly used 6920 upper headed my way. Should be delivered tomorrow afternoon, I can't wait.

    I’m interested to hear what other uppers you have and how that 6920 compares in feel to those.

    I’ve been some comparisons lately and the results are counter to common opinion.

    What comparisons have you seen? I'd be interested in the data.

    Be happy to share my thoughts, but it'll be a while. Ammo is still thin on the ground here and my stash is uncomfortably low.

    6920 is still the gold standard, just because. And it is great to have a nice base gun. I have a base model LMT 10.5 with iron sights and plastic hand guard. It's fun to go back to basics. Had a 6920 like everyone else and sold it like an idiot.

    I have others but no baseline models.
