Colt vs bushmaster
 
Colt le6920 or bushmaster ar15?? What's better and why??

I don't know which is better but Colt has big pins for the hammer and trigger and some other parts that don't interchange. Don't know if they are all the same but my buddy has one and I have his reversible safety in my Bushy, also have his mil-spec tube that only has 4 positions, there is a gap close to the receiver with no notch, we can't figure why.

The Colt 6920 is better by far. I'll let you do your own research to find out why.

You're talking about an older Colt, not a current 6920.

Colt...


Or you could go with Smith&Wesson, and get Colt quality with the Bushmaster price. Just my $0.02

Colt is as close to milspec as you can get in a civvy gun bushmaster is a low end copy. Its like a knock off. Same as when someone takes the bmw emblems and puts em on a toyota and claims its a bmw....

Colt! There is a reason they sent me to combat with a Colt and not a Bushmaster! And it's not because of price we all know that!

I agree 100%. However a few new colt I have seen on the shelves look like blems . I think this is due to trying to crank stuff out so fast now a days . They arent all like that just a few that I saw . That stuff doesnt bother me since I use mine and they arent safe queens . They get their own birth marks after the first couple times out . If i was going to buy a box factory made gun at the lowest price I would buy a BCM,

The last govt issued m4 and m16s I just saw had FN and a General Motors receiver. Colt is not the be-all,end-all. But I would still go with the Colt over the Bushy.

How about the 6940?
