I think both of those brands are more highly thought of than Bushmaster.

Hard to go wrong with Colt or DD. Like you I'd rather get the 6920 instead of the 6940 though a few people here have the 6940 and say good things. I wouldn't be interested in any Hamster.

I just bought a colt 6920...great gun. I was at the store and they had one for a little under 1200 and while I was looking at it I received a call from an acquaintance the wanted to buy mg used 6920 for 1600 so I bought the new one. Wut a day! Lol all in all the colt 6920 is a damn good rifle. And around here 223 ammo is running bout 9.99 per box of 20 for pmc and 12.99 per 20 of the American eagle ar223 Carnot tipped ammo

If you can get an LE6940 for under $1500 in today's market I would grab it up... If all else fails you can guaranteed sell it for more than you bought it for. I own a LE6940 and it has been an excellent gun for me, the only issue I had was that colts have a sear block in them so most drop in trigger mechanisms won't fit. But I'm upgrading to a LaRue OBR now so it's all good. Good luck on picking.

Just for curiosity's sake.....what were the Colt AR's going for say, last October, before all this craziness? Specifically the 6920 & 6940's?

The LE 6940 was going for $1400-$1500 I believe, and I'm not sure on the LE 6920, but I know that it was a few hundred dollars less than the LE 6940. Anyone correct me if I am wrong.

You are correct. Bought my LE 6940 for $1395 and my LE 6920 for $1095 in 2012.

I bought my Rock River Arms off of Gunbroker.com. Paid 1620.00 including shipping and transfer fee. Super nice gun. It's the ATH Carbine with stainless steel 1:8 match barrel. Here's a few pics. Also found 4 30rd Troy Battlemags for 84.00.

The used 6940 I was looking at Sunday is gone. I like the 6920 better anyway, and the LGS said I could order one, but no guarantees on when it will come in. I don't mind waiting. He quoted me a price of $1200-ish.

I've had my 6940 ($1450) for over a year, and ~2000 rounds now. Not a single complaint.

Might like a 6920 as well, but don't have one.

My 6940, with TA31H (red) ACOG is as near to my perfect rifle as the law allows me to own.
