The AR15 name is no different. I own a Colt LE6940 AR-15. That's what I tell people, because if I simply said "Colt LE6940" most people would have no idea what I was talking about.
Ah ha. A 6940. There's a man with class!

Just got a LWRC M6 and a bunch of other numbers in for a customer so it's an AR too.

The 6920 is Colt's standard M4gery, the 6940 has a monolithic upper receiver. Nice rifles, either one.

So I either have a Del-ton Echo 316/MOE or a DTI-15. I reckon I will stick with the AR when telling non-AR types what kind of carbine I have.
