Proud new owner of a new Colt MPG-B (green)

I had been searching hi and lo for this M4 carbine and everywhere I looked it was always backorderd so I settled on the common LE9620 and was happy but...I go to the gun shop to pick up a few Pmags and guess what was hanging on the display wall! yup, a new Colt LE9620 with the MPG-B TALO option. They was willing to take take my black LE in trade but I had to eat a $100 loss but in the end I was more than happy with it. This rifle is stunning in person and pictures just don't do it justice.

My actual weapon at the range.

It is said this is the only green reciever ever produced by colt and the production run was for only 1500 units so I am kinda hoping I will never see another one at the range or anywheres else...so stoked here!!

Nice-looking rifle!

Now your next step is to replace all the black Magpul furniture with foliage green furniture!

Then go walk around saying, "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when i'm angry!"

Question for you... with the adjustable stock, what are the minimum and maximum lengths of pull on that rifle? (distance from the trigger to the end of the stock).

Thanks in advance...

OK, well that's not what I was looking for, but if you get the time sometime, no rush at all.

I've seen one of those at my LGS a couple of weeks ago. Nice change to black receivers. That said, I have not been back since the "panic buying" started. You could probalby triple your money if you sell it.
