I have been watching for this release for a while and they are finally appearing on Gun Broker.
Colt has re-branded the iconic 6920 series of carbines again. The new release is now designated the CR6920 and is replacing the LE6920.
Colt has consolidated all Commercial & LE Rifle rollmarks under one common model naming nomenclature,”Colt Carbine”. This change allows for consistency in manufacturing across current and future rifle builds. Features on this model are identical to the prior LE6920 platform, with the exception of the changed rollmark.
All other features appear to stay the same.
I don’t have any grief with the rollmark change after seeing what litigation did to Remington. I would rather see Colt change a rollmark and stay in business than get sued by some virtue signalers because a rifle has ‘military’ markings. It will be interesting to see of Colts series of ‘Military Classics’ (2018 SOCOM, CRM16A1, CRXM177E2) stay in production with the replicated government rollmarks.
I plan to get one on order this weekend if I can find one in stock at one of my preferred sellers.

Have a M16A1 and 6920. Was concerned about markings on the A1. After receiving the A1 I dig the pencil barrel and the upper and lower have markings. Was originally concerned due to other postings.
After seeing the new marking, I am happy to have the original rollmarks.
Really into the FN15 forend. Thinking would be nice with a ACOG 3x vs a second 6920 with same scope. The alternate would be LE6920-FBP1 or M4 Trooper.
I am not sure what you are meaning by FN15 forend. I like ACOG’s so you can’t really go wrong with them. I hope to add an FBP1 and Trooper to the collection eventually.
What is the 11.5 barrel Colt model?

There are a few different 11.5″ barrel versions. The most common is the LE6933.
Colt announced that it will halt its production of AR-15 rifles for civilian sales on Thursday, but the news might not be as exciting for gun control advocates as it first appears.

That is not accurate information. Colt has not stopped production for the civilian market.
Thank you for this article! I’ve been searching for hours on the roll mark change!
