My series of photos of the details of the Colt LE6920M continues with three photos added to the album.
I added a page for this poster in the ‘Advertising/Promotional Material’ section. You can read a few details at this link: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-m16a2-m4-m203-poster/
We have learned that the Colt “AR-15 Military Classics” series will continue past the current M16A1 and XM177E2 rifles that are currently offered at retail. The only information that we have learned so far is that one of the next rifles will be a Colt Model 02 (commonly known as the 602). We have added a section to the site for the Colt Model 02 and will update it as information is received. The graphic below was created by us to share what little we currently know.
I created a page and placed four images of a Colt ‘Gun Record’ on the site. You can see more here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt-firearm-transaction-log/
I went in my local gun shop today. They had a second variation of the ‘Colt’ 1-inch scope ring mount in stock. The first variation that I had seen and purchased previously was marketed under the Colt Competition line as part # 1401. The variation that I found today was also part # 1401 but it was marketed as a ‘Colt’ product and not ‘Colt Competition’. Both items are rebranded Warne scope mounts.
Although I am glad that I have added the packaging variation to my collection, I was a bit disappointed with the quality/effort that went into the product. My primary complaint is the scope mount instructions which are a lopsided photocopy that is also a misshaped cutout. The scope mount was $70…I would expect something of better quality and professional presentation like the Colt Competition product that I show in the photos above.

Today I added about 48 photos to the page here that discusses the Colt LE6920M w/ standard carry handle. I will be adding additional photos to this page in the coming days as I take photos and post them to the corresponding social media accounts.

Our friends at ‘Loose Rounds’ posted an interesting writeup on sniping that was conducted with the M16A1 during the Vietnam War time period. Check it out at this link : http://looserounds.com/2019/07/11/sniping-with-the-m16a1/
