Le6920

Question, there is a seller on GB with a LE6920 MP-B that he is asking $3,500 for, is this carbine worth that much?

HELL NO. The MSRP on that rifle was/is $999.00. Unfortunately there are a lot of Gunbroker sellers fishing for a sucker right now.

I think he's taking advantage of the fact that Colt has halted production on ARs for the civilian market.

Thanks guys, I thought that was an outrageous price, I paid just under 700.00 for mine a few years ago.

No.... one month ago, Bereli Arms in Florida (online retailer) had them for about $900. Seriously, a month ago.

Sadly both Military Arms Channel and Hickok45 have made videos in the past couple of weeks claiming that Colt no longer makes ARs for civilians. In the time it'll take to finally squash that rumor Colt will probably do it again.

There is NO currently produced AR15, in 5.56mm, anywhere on the planet, that's legitimately worth $3500....

Unfortunately people are listing the M4A1 SOCOM versions of the Colt for that much. MSRP was/is $1499, which I'd gladly pay, but definitely not twice that!

If it included a 1970's vintage Python......it would still be too much.

Well you have to admit that Colt did say they were getting out of the civilian market to focus on .mil contracts.

But just like the bitch it is Colt appears to have changed it's mind.

Colt never officially said they were ending civilian production of ARs for good. These gun tabloids are just as bad as the leftist lamestream news media when it comes to taking things out of context to juice up a story.

I know this thread is getting a little long in the tooth, but there are emails out now that say contracts are filled and commercial production for Colt is back in full swing. Uppers for various models can be purchased from Brownells as well.

Be patient, and 6920s can be had at realistic prices again. Just keep checking Arms Unlimited, Brownells, and Grabagun.

I know this is old, but I saw it and had to answer. I have a 6920 MPS-B. I sure hope you're right. In fact I can save you a few hundred bucks if you will buy mine. Actually, that's ridiculous.

Of course now that 6920s are finally available again, try finding the food for them. It reminds me of an old Looney Tunes cartoon where Sylvester the Cat spent hours chasing a mouse who had the can opener for his cat food. At the end he finally gets the can opener, only to find the mouse just put a padlock on the food cabinet and was waving the key in his face.

LE6920 are being shipped again and I’ve seen several gun shops in three different states have them. Asking price is around high $1100.

Still ridiculous pricing at that point but hey, it’s available again, especially for those who must have the pony.

Guns have gone up in price across the board thanks to the 1-2-3 punch of 2020, so I'm not surprised that they're going for nearly $1200. Frankly I'm surprised they're not selling for more.

If I spotted one for 1.2K under current conditions I would pounce on it. Unfortunately all the ones I've laid eyes on have a price tag of 1.3-1.4K. And half of those were used.

Call that shop. Who knows, they might still have one or two left at $1169 a pop.

They way things are going at gun stores nationwide I would be surprised to see a single AR-15 rifle still on the shelf, Colt or not. Some shops are now down to selling old Mosin-Nagants for home defense.
