    It's your rifle and you can do as you please of course, but I'm always confused about the need to buy a different, cheaper rifle so as to "preserve" a 6920. The 6920s weren't some rare, hand-crafted firearm... they're a mass-produced tool and they made 1.6 gajillion of them. Just shoot it and enjoy it. If you're like most folks you'll never come anywhere close to wearing it out.

    Yes i understand what your saying, i traded a sks for the expanse... the 6920 might not be a rare gem ( mine is the hawk edition they had a few years back for 1700$ and is like new... but when you have 2000$ in a gun and you want to keep it nice to pass to your children why not put the wear and tear on the cheaper gun that is basically the same?

    You traded an SKS for the Expanse? You definitely got the better part of the deal!
    It was me...I shot Liberty Valance.

    Guess where I found that crab forge mark.......sitting on my brand new right out of the box Colt Competition Rifle. So if you think you were taken on yours then I was really taken on my deal for what I paid for the CRE 18T. I will ask the colt competition guys here in Texas whose forge mark that is. But relax if it's on my CCR it can't be that bad.

    The crab forge mark is from the Ulven forge which has been around since 1971. And is an approved official Colt vendor and appears on other Colt competition rifles.....so says my contact at Colt competition rifles in Texas.
