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/
I have added a page showing a set of 1986 catalogs and documents that I purchased. You can see the items at this link: https://thecoltar15resource.com/1986-150th-anniversary-catalog-documents/
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.
This is a 1983 Colt advertisement for rifle and pistol cases manufactured for Colt by the Bob Allen company. They are shown on pages 198 and 200 in “The Book of Colt Memorabilia” by John Ogle.
M16A1 instructor manuals from 1974. The Armorer/Depot maintenance manual is from 1974 as well.
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.
