    Colt sp6920 le6920 vs Del-ton sport vs Sig sauer m400. What would be the best AR, for the money, to buy right now and why? I honestly cannot decide on what I want .. Really leaning on the Colt, but would like input. Thanks

    all these are in very different rpice classes in MSRP and pre-bubble street prices.
    BUT at current prices which are all elevated the price differences might be a much saller %age.
    In that case get the nicest one.

    Its all a function fo price.
    The M400 has a greta rep.
    The Colts have a large following
    And the DTI is enty level but fully fucntional.

    Or oyu could wait 6-10 months until the bubble is gone and you cna buy guns at MSRP again (or even elss)

    I've been very happy with both my Colts i've had since 92' and would buy another Colt in a heart beat.

    My WalMart has been getting in a few AR15s every couple of weeks here lately. I had been check every morning for the past 6 weeks. I walked in as they were unboxing one. I looked on the end of the box and it was labeled LE6920. I told the clerk "SOLD!" Price $1,097.00 plus tax.

    This is one like mine here: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar2R2bG14r4[/ame]

    I'd go the route of piecing one together. I bought stripped lower, Lower Build Kit and Complete upper. Spent just under $800. Not including the other $700 I spent on accessories. Once my damn LBK gets here from PSA, I'll be ready to finish.

    That is $1500 well spent IMO.

    M&P15 Stripped Lower
    PSA Lower Build Kit
    Spikes Tactical LE Mid-length complete upper
    Spikes Tactical 9" BAR
    Grip Pod Military
    Troy Industries Spikes Rear Flip up Sight
    Magpul AFG
    Magpul MIAD grip
    Magpul ACS-L stock
    Primary Arms M3 Multi-reticle Red Dot
    Primary Arms 6x Magnifier w/ QD mount

    Total Cost = $1500-$1600

    Get the Colt.

    Why?

    Because it's a Colt. And 100 years from now...it'll STILL be a Colt....

    If you can find one for the right price.....which is rather difficult right now. Plus there are other great companies who rival the quality of Colt. If you want to buy an AR just to say you have a Colt, by all means listen to Prime. But I've fired ARs from at least a dozen Manufacturers, and your not getting much more than a name.

    Here is a more thorough video of the LE6920 that you can buy at WalMart if you are lucky enough to walk in at the right time.

    Colt is s great AR. Shootable, collectable. Just a fine black firearm. No question about it. However. When the SHTF, ain't no one going to care what brand AR any riffles are.

    I have a colt, an Olympic, a PWA, and two DPMS versions. Love em all. Hope to any Gods listening, I never get to shoot one, or all.

    The right to bear arms shall not be infringed is where I am at now, and at a peaceful readiness is where I hope my tired old bones stay for many more years.

    I'd go for the Colt. I saw a youtube video about how VERY few makers actually follow ALL of the Mil-Specs. Colt was one of them. Meaning, it looks and shoots like all the others, but has upgraded parts and way more quality control than the others.

    I'd advise you to look through the different brands, weigh the pro's and con's, price and performance, then make your decision. However, if you've got tons of cash and want the best, just get a Colt.
