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:

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.
