Yep, the Colt 6920. And if you SBR it to 14.5" it'll be even closer! :p

Technically it is the 6921, but is has the same barrel as the military, it is also a factory SBR, so you have to jump through the NFA hoops to get it.

For non NFA, 6920 is the way to go.

If you can get the flash hider permanently(pinned and welded) attached to the barrel on the 14.5" bringing the total length to 16" you can get it without the ATF bull ****!

But I don't want it to say "LE" on it. I was really hoping to get one that just has the same marking as the military on with the exception of the burst on the fire selector. Ya see, I bought an M9 the other day, not the beretta 92 but one stamped M9. So what I'm hoping to do is get an M4 just like what I carry at work (air force security forces). I thought it would be meet to be able to pass the set down to my son years down the road.

There is a SP marked version of the 6920. Not the exact rollmark of your M4, but no LE markings.

Want something really close? Buy a Colt 6920 SOCOM, you get the LExxxxxx serial#, 16.1" 1-7 chrome lined barrel, roll marked M4A1 CARBINE and Colt Defense, Knights Arm. Quad RAS, (2) 30 round mags, ambidextrous safety and a bayo lug. Major difference from real M4 being the barrel is 1.6 inches longer and of course the FCG. Expect to pay about $1400-$1700 depending on what version is purchased, SOCOM or SOCOM II.

It seems like a lot of 6920 carbines coming out these days are marked "M4 CARBINE" on the lower. Ploufedaddy had photos of his new 6920 with those markings posted here recently.

I bought mine from a LE/MIL dealer (I have no clue if that's why the serial number is LEXXXXXX or not, just pointing that out in case someone asked later in the thread...

As for the closest to what you carry at work--the SOCOM's the way to go. The majority of the M4s I've been issued in the last few years are set up like the SOCOM (minus optics of course). Same rail, stock, ect.... If you get that one, you can have the barrel cut, threaded, and pinned to 16 OAL for about another $150. Then, maybe by the time your son gets it, the NFA will be repealed and he'll be able to install the same FCG... At lease we can dream anyway! :D

I heard it was because a bunch of police department admins had a fit and wouldn't allow the purchase of "Sporter" marked rifles.

So they dropped the SP designation and changed the roll marks.

Those that got rifles with the SP serial numbers and Sporter on them will probably have collectors items in the future.:D
