Colt LE6920-R Trooper Carbine

Clyde Armory has received a shipment of new old stock, out of production, LE6920-R Trooper carbines. See the second image in this post and you will see that these have rollmarked lower receivers.

If you missed out on one for your collection, like I did, now is a chance to get one. You can get one on their website or you can call them at 706-549-1842. Be advised this model of carbine purposely does not come with any sights. You will need to purchase a set off your preferred sights to put on yourself.

I am not affiliated with Clyde Armory, just sharing a good opportunity with you.

Product description from Colts website:

Happy Birthday Samuel Colt

Today we celebrate the life of Samuel Colt. His life and the ongoing history of Colts Manufacturing Company LLC has inspired so many of us.

Not only did the legacy of Colt firearms influence firearms design and manufacturing, it has given us the inspiration to appreciate, collect, fire and study the history of Colt firearms.

2014 Product Fold-Out Observation

While doing some research, I noticed two interesting things on this section of the Colt 2014 product fold-out.

Product images from Colt 2014 product fold-out

1. The LE6920AE shows the ambidextrous lower receiver that we currently see on the M5 Tactical Carbine.


2. The LE6920SOCOM is listed with the Troy rail system. Although we have known for years that Colt made the 2013 model SOCOM with the Troy rail, this is the first time I noticed it formally acknowledged.

EDITED 13 JUL 2021- I have learned that these are not new production but are old stock making it to market. The AR15A4 is still replaced by the CR6700A4.

Colt has a new AR-15A4 on the market. I hope to have detailed photos soon.

The rifle has selector stops and it has a new laser engraved rollmark.
