I needed another carry handle for my kids ARs so I bought a Colt 6920 with carry handle marked for Mexican Defense forces.
699 and $28 shipped. Not bad was looking at a BCM but I have half of a Colt (Henderson Arms rifle now Machinegun USA in Vegas, Colt upper on their lower with NV on it). I bought after Sandyhook and an Armalite Law Enforcement Carbine I bought in Jun 2016. I do prefer carbine length gas systems because less issues with ammo most of the time compared to mid-lengths in my opinion.
Well here is the specs and the link.
The Colt LE6920 is the duty-grade standard to which all other agency patrol rifles are measured. As part of the proven M4 and M16 lineage, the LE6920 is the top choice for law enforcement agencies around the world. This limited batch of carbines was originally produced by Colt for the Secretaria de la Defensa Nacional of Mexico, Directorate of Commercial Arms and Munitions (DCAM), the Mexican governmental department responsible for equipping Mexico’s state and municipal law enforcement agencies. In compliance with Mexican law, these rifles all feature the official “S.D.N. MEXICO D.F.” roll mark on the right side of the magazine well (see photos for roll mark). These new-in-box models will make as excellent shooters, and their rarity adds to collector value. Each carbine ships in the factory box with a sling, cleaning tools, two aluminum 30-round magazines and an operator’s manual written in Spanish and English.

I was not drunk but I might be selling my lwrci M6a3 upper now and my Sig p228.
I was looking at buying a BCM lower and instead bought a Colt. Wow that is a difference in $350. And no cool guy stock or trigger.

My first thought was some “Gunwalker” joke.
Looks like a good one with an interesting story.July 18, 2017 at 11:04 pm #46938
Yeah just trying to help others out so they are not like me. Glad I am selling stuff when I get home too many ARs but the only Colt lower I had was a Colt made in Bold Texas lower because it was made in Texas.
