This is mine. I purchased for $1299.00, 3 days after the tragic shooting in Newtown. Basically right at the beginning of all the ridiculess s#&* that has transpired since.
As Sweeper stated, It's a basic Colt LE 6920, its got a little over $100 worth of Magpul stuff. I got this one, as it was the last of a pallet load of AR's that arrived that day, at my local firearms emporium. Again, it was the beginning of all the craziness that started in mid Dec.
I waded thru 50-60 other knuckleheads to get it, and felt damn lucky to get what I did.
Yes, there are other makes out there that may or may not be better, BUT
, I believe, having a rifle that is the same make and configuration, Made with the same materials, under the same quality control, and is built in the U.S.A. Is the same weapon that is used by our soldiers on the front lines, less full auto of course, is well worth the price of admission. If you get my meaning.
As you can see I did add a Aimpoint PRO to it, and is in just the beginning stages of configuring the rifle to fit and suite ME.
I dont think you or anyone can go wrong with a colt. IMHO
