Colt LE6920PD

I have never seen this variant of the Colt LE6920 before. This carbine was seen today (14 JUN 2020) on Gun Broker and ends today. What makes this rifle variant unique is the use of a B5 KeyMod rail handguard system. This is the only Colt factory rifle that I have seen with a KeyMod rail handguard. You can see twenty images from the auction here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/le6920pd/

Colt Cup Rifle Matches

In 1987, Colt began the ‘Colt Cup Rifle Match’ as a promotional event for their AR-15A2 HBAR series of rifles. One of my new endeavors is to try to put together a history of the Colt Cup Match. However, other than some mention of it in a 6-page Colt AR-15A2 HBAR promotional document, there seems to be zero information available.

One a side note, I have purchased two hats and about five pins from the Colt Cup events. Some of the items are still on the way.

If anyone has any information, I would be grateful if you shared it.

Colt 2017 LE6920SOCOM

Here is an opportunity to own a Colt 2017 SOCOM. There were only about 250 of these made in 2017 before Colt changed to the current 2018 SOCOM specification with the U.S. Property marked lower. The 2017 SOCOM is one of five SOCOM versions that has been produced by Colt. It isn’t cheap but uncommon rifles rarely are. Ends on 7 June 2020.

As we all know, still photos and text are not as entertaining as videos about our favorite Colt rifles. I have added a page to the website where I am going to link to assorted videos that are related to Colt AR-15/M-16 videos. I have only linked to twenty videos so far. I will update the page with more videos soon. You can scroll through the videos that I have currently linked here:

Misrepresented ‘Colt’ 40-Round Magazine

The unfortunate thing about this hobby is that there is always someone out there looking for an opportunity to rip you off through a counterfeit product or misrepresentation of product. The depend on the new collectors that have not had the opportunity to learn what legitimate products look like to find their sales.

The claimed ‘Colt 40-Round’ AR-15 magazine shown here was auctioned on Gun Broker with an ending date of 18 May 2020. It had a starting price of .99 cents and, after 43 bids, closed at $178.00. The seller stated that it was a pre-ban magazine that just sat in his safe. Here is the auctioned item…

Through consultation with many other educated collectors and some former Colt employees, the consensus is that the magazine above is not a legitimate Colt product but probably a USA magazine with a fake label. Below is the USA magazine product:

If you look at the labels on the toe of the magazine in the packages, they are exactly the same. Colt never marketed magazines from USA.

I hope you find this comparison informative.
