I'd definitely go CMMG before colt. Colt thinks too much of their stuff...

It's hard to find a better fit to his requirements than Colt.

LOL, yeah my out of spec CMMG upper receiver is a much better choice than anything Colt has to offer.

Come on man. From your name I imagine you're in a combat arms MOS and should know the difference in quality.

If you look you will find that Colt has changed drastically as of late. They sell their new 6920 for under $1k, thats a hell of a deal.

Not meaning to be argumentative but I don't like it when people are steered in the wrong direction.

G&R Tactical has complete BCM lowers for sale and in stock. They also offer BCM blems which will save you $71. Word on the street is the blems are hardly noticeable.
