    LE6920HBPW Price

    I know what is going on currently with the production cease to civs.....is $1450 too much for LE6920HBPW even considering the current cease in production. Or do we think they will start production for the public in the next year or so?

    Colt said they had something like a 120-day inventory of rifles for the commercial market. Unless that goes down significantly I can't see them resuming production for something that's in a saturated market just for the sake of doing so. I would believe Colt will restart production at some point but only if the market conditions warrant it.

    Sellers are probably hyping the break in production...if not outright calling it a complete cessation of production forever...to increase demand for their inventory so they can realize higher prices.

    The way I see it...everyone who wants an AR-platform rifle or carbine already has one by now. Prices are down across the board from pretty much every manufacturer. We'll probably even see a few companies drop out as few are buying. If the political scene changes and there's fear of bans or confiscations that might come true then we'll see production crank up across the board again. Don't underestimate the power of panic and the companies that can cash in on it like last time.

    Agreed - inflated prices now are just dealers trying to sell high. If the market turns, political wise, Colt will likely start back up.

    I'd typically think the same - that anyone who wants one, by now has one. Except every time there's even a bump (tragic event, mass shooting, political shift, etc) then there's a line of people typically overpaying and buying them. Plus, in calm times most say "I'm good, I've got one". As soon as you threaten the supply (same with preppers for food, ammo, toilet paper...), those that were good with their one rifle are usually out overpaying for another or three.

    The price is consistent with any I can find in the Dallas area. How soon and bad do you want it.

    The price for that carbine is way too high compared with the retail price of around $1,149 but I'm not surprised some sellers are taking advantage of the current hype.

    I had heard Colt will not stop supplying law enforcement dealers which most of them sells to civilians, also some dealers do not follow the hype and sells the regular retail prices.

    I'm guilty of reacting to the hype and a few weeks ago I bought a Colt LE6920-EPR Enhanced Patrol Rifle complete upper half with 16" barrel, Centurion Arms M-LOK modular rail system, bolt carrier group & charging handle, in a factory blue and white box, not a take off, for slightly below retail price.

    Usually I don't buy Colt products above retail prices, I'll post pics after I install my favorite backup iron sights.

    If you're referring to the current/recent production 6920 / M4A1SOCOM US Property marked HBPW, MSRP is 1,499.
    If referring to previous HBPW's, don't know what they would bring.Just more, than a couple months ago.

    Suspect the Prop marked is worth the price, from a collectibility standpoint.
    Colt snubbies rule.
