Is a colt 6900 LE a good buy?

I have never heard of this model before.
I know colt has a great reputation, can anyone give me some help
trying to decide to get this rifle?

I think they came out around 4 year ago. They shaved some weight off it. Also got rid of the ejection port cover and forward assist. I've heard some speculate they weren't made in house. Whether they were or weren't is enough to make me look elsewhere. Colt makes a quality AR. But the 6900 isn't in the same league as their other ARs. If you want a Colt, I look for a different model especially with prices being as cheap as they are today.

Probably not unless you suffer "logo ego". Many AR types that are equal to or better than the "prancing pony" in actual use. IMHO

It's a Colt licensed product built and assembled by Anderson. Not a "real" Colt.

If it was crazy cheap, maybe. But with the current AR market glut, I mean it would really have to be crazy cheap.

There are a lot of options on the market, and especially if the seller is asking a "Colt" price rather than an "Anderson" price.

I'm seeing 6920 OEM1s out there for well under $700.

I just don't see the point of the lesser Expanse models. Why buy a phoney when you can get the real deal for almost the same money?
