My LGS has the Colt LE6920 model for $999. It is actually one of the cheaper AR rifles he sells.

Considering it's so close in price (currently) with other brands, why not get the Colt? You won't be disappointed.

PSA is a bargain and seems to deliver the goods. You can't go wrong with the Colt though PSA does give you a lot of bang for the buck. Study the specs of Colt, BCM, Daniel Defense and PSA and make the best decision for you.

I have several PSA s. No problems with any of them . Also have a spikes , no problems. I have a build with a colt 20" target upper that I have not fired yet but I'm sure it won't have any issues. Again buy what u like that meets your needs not what everyone else says is best. If u truely want a colt, PSA or what ever else buy it . Don't second guess yourself and have no regrets. They both have a lifetime warranty

Listen to Canebrake and Quentin. They speaks wisdom.

i have three Colts. Two old SP1 types. (rifle and carbine)

My latest is a LE6940. It's worth every penny I paid for it and more. I put an ACOG TA31F on it, and it's a perfect fit for my needs.

I have a colt 6920 and love it, out of the box I am hitting water jugs out to 200yd open sights. I am glad I bought it and know I can recoup most of my money if I want to sell it. With that said I also owned a rra and love that also. Like said before there are many good cheaper brands out there, look around and buy what appeals to you the most.

You can get a better AR for less money if you will shop around. In my opinion your just paying for the name anyway.
