Just ordered my Colt 6940 today. Found a great deal at grabagun.com. I'll tell you what, these guys had absolutely awesome service! Their customer support emailed me back at 1 in the morning and carried a conversion to help me out! Also, they had THE BEST prices online that I was able to find anywhere. Great guys!
When the rifle gets in (Thursday or Friday most likely), I'll post some pics. Now I just have to save up a little more for the Eotech exps 3-4 and magnifier, then I am all set!

The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

As a user of both EoTech and Aimpoint, might I suggest you look into a H1. I started out w/ a XPS and am now on my 2nd H1 and I don't have any plans of purchasing another micro besides a H1 from here on out.
BotachTactical.com has them on sale for under $400. With ADM mount you're looking at $480 free shipping.
