    These are good no frills rifles.
    I bet you paid a lot less than OP did.


    Gave $800 cash for one NIB, out the door guessing about 6 months before Trump won his presidential election. As that election got closer and closer I saw friends pay much more for the same exact rifle. (friends buying from the same exact LGS that I bought mine from earlier in the year)

    The guy that bought last before that election paid the most.

    Just because you see someone pay a crazy sum of money for something does not mean it is 'worth' that crazy ass sum of money. A good example of this is the current price of primers at places like Gunraper. Just because people are currently bidding and paying $400 (and / or more) for a thousand primers does not mean that is a 'good price'. All it really means is that a desperate / impatient fool was parted with their money. (buying when demand is high and supply is low and paying the 'stupid tax' because of it)

    And conversely, just becasue you got a screaming deal on something, doesn't mean that someone else that paid normal market price is crazy. If you found one for $800, you got a deal.

    I bought my 6920 in 1997 when they first came out (22XX serial #), were marked "Law Enforcement Officers Carbine" and were only available on department letterhead for individual purchase, for $749 + tax.

    Even years later after the AWB sunset, they were hanging around in local shops for $995. Fast forward 10- 15 years from that to present and adjust for inflation, Covid tax, and election hysteria, and $1100 isn't a bad price.

    Considering I saw used 6920s going for $1,500.00 during the peak of the Covid panic, $1,100.00 seems like a fair deal.

    I bought my first personally owned AR, an LE6920 in ‘08 and IIRC it was about $11-1200.

    The closest I'll get to a Colt 6920, a 6920 upper mated to an LMT lower.

    Congrats on your new Colt! I bought a Turkish pistol that must have been dunked in a barrel of oil before shipping, so I feel your pain. At least it was not cosmoline.

    Thanks guys. The great thing is the bolt and the barrel are properly marked.
