I thank you and my Colt thanks you for the compliment. I wish there was something I could do to help you acquire a Colt 6920. Actually there might be but I think it would be better discussed over PM's rather than on the forum.
Us Krauts ( please dont take offense to my reference, as I am VERY proud of my heritage, just like to have a little fun with it.) have to stick together.....I am of almost full German decent, as both sets of Great Grandparent's came over on the Big boat after WWI to get away from what was inevitably coming. My mom's Maiden name is Buchheim. My birth name is Myers. Not sure exactly how much German blood of Fathers side but Moms is Full. They both wanted my first name to be spelled in the German way. Kurtis...
Sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Congrats on the Colt. Colt IS the standard. Some may not think so, but they would be wrong. It is an outstanding AR that IS battle proven every day. I put my life on the line with a Colt many times as I'm sure others here have as well. Not many of those "other brands" have that distinction. You made the right choice.

My last name is also Myers. My fathers family also came by boat and ended up eventually in Kentucky. We are originally from Hamburg. My mother is Italian.

By standard as it applies to Colt I say that because Colt has been the main supplier of ARs to the US military for 50 years. Government standards are extremely stringent and while there have been a few other M-16 suppliers like a division of GM and lately FN, Colt has produced far more than anyone else.
Another great example is Colts 1911 pistol, there are numerous makers who make good 1911s but they are all copies.

To a degree, it is tradition. I own a colt, but I also own an Olympic, a PWA, and two DPMS.

Most if us would never wear out any AR , regardless of brand. I love them all. Would like to add a Bushmaster and a S&W to my collection, as well as a 10mm upper.

I agree there are a lot of good ARs made by other manufactures. One of my best is a 20 year old Eagle Arms, a company that morphed into ArmaLite when they bought the name. When piston ARs started to be the rage I bought a Smith & Wesson example and it to is a very good rifle backed by a lifetime warranty. Then there are the boutique ARs with there boutique prices, some may have unique features but it boils down to what you want. It seems like every month there's a new company making ARs. Everytime I go to one of several shops there will be an AR made by a company I never heard of before. I believe that if you go with a known name brand company you'll get a decent AR. If you go with a Colt you know what you are getting, a battle tested AR made on the same line, with the same materials and quality control as the service M4s.
If you ever get the opportunity to take the factory tour at Colt you'll be impressed.

Love it so far guys love that I bought Colt! I'm just all around happy, one more thing I could use some help on. It appears I need a special tool to take off my foregrips to install the vertical Magpul handle. Where can these be ordered? Also any suggestions on a case?

Is that why Colt LOST the military contract to Remington & the DEA, FBI & CIA went to RRAs. Colt is now buying cheap low quality guns to sell at $850 from a budget econo gun maker & putting Colts name on them. Once was the best, didn't improve & lost. Dream on! RRA has a lifetime wattenty & guaranties 3/4" MOA. Does Colt?
