  1. After lurking around a few forums for months back in 2010, decided on a Colt 6920 based on SME's recommendations and the infamous "Chart". It has fulfilled all of my needs and has done so reliably. It was about $1200 back then. Now you can pick one up in the $900-950 range!

    Looking for my first AR

    I'll throw these out there. If you want a Mid-length gas system consider this, http://sionicsweaponsystems.com/store/product.php?id_product=103 If you want a Carbine-length gas system consider this, http://dsgarms.com/ProductInfo/COLE6920MP-DE.aspx

    How Does My First AR15 Build Look?

    If you haven't made your upper purchase yet, consider this, $560 w/BCG and Vltor Charging Handle. http://sionicsweaponsystems.com/store/product.php?id_product=23

    Lighter weight handguard?

    If you wanted to shave a pound off the total weight of the rifle because you felt it would handle better for you, fine, go at it with all of the advice previously given. Doing it for your grandkids, I wouldn't bother. They'll be growing up fast enough to handle your rifle in no time. I'd use the money and time saved buying more reloading supplies.
  5. This is starting to sound dubious. The OP can't reply if he can separate the upper from the lower as advised from several members. He won't even answer basic questions pertaining to the troubleshooting of his rifle. As far as I'm concerned, he's on his own.
  6. Okay Mike, Let's make this simple. Can you separate the upper from the lower? We'll start from ground zero.
  7. Has this condition been like this since the very day you bought it? Have you at any time since you bought this rifle been able to charge the rifle with the charging handle and felt the bolt carrier group move forward and lock up in battery? You should be able to pull out the rear takedown pin and swing the upper away from the lower. Can you even see the bolt face through the ejection port? Hell, you might not even have a bolt carrier group to begin with!

    Good websites

    When I need hard to find parts for my Colts, either ARs or 1911s I check here, http://www.specializedarmament.com/index.php? For other accessories, I have had excellent results with http://www.primaryarms.com/default.asp

    Wrong info.
  10. Here is another excellent source for Colt parts. http://www.specializedarmament.com/catalog..._Parts-4-0.html
  11. Okay, how far is pretty far? A few feet, five feet, eight feet, twelve feet, next county? Twice as far as your BM, which was what? Maybe the BM didn't eject as far as it should. Your description is a little vague.
  12. On a moderate budget and being new to the AR, you won't know what you need until you start using it and then finding out if you really need to upgrade. You might find out that a basic set-up will meet your needs just fine. The DD fixed rear sight is a solid sight. Troy makes a fixed rear sight in the same price range. Magpul also makes a folding rear sight at that price point. fdxpilot's recommendation on a Magpul MOE handguard is right on. It will accept various light mounts, sling mounts, and vertical grips from Magpul and several other manufacturers. Until you get some trigger time on your BCM, just get a solid basic setup. The $200 or so you save by foregoing a free float rail will pay for a light mount, light, sling, slingmount, and hand guard. BCM is only charging you $20 extra to have the M-4 buttstock when you order it with a lower receiver group. It's a decent stock to start out with. Again, it might fulfill your needs and save you some money for magazines,ammo,etc.

    "Roll Marks" on the LE6920

    Here's a source for the LE6920 at a very good price and is in stock if you choose the buy a complete carbine route. http://www.gandrtactical.com/cgi-bin/comme...on&key=6920
  14. Somehow I think I'm going to regret this but since it's been mentioned. Not just purple but red,yellow,green,pink and more. Oh my! http://www.gungoddess.com/ar-15-purple-stock-set/
  15. If you're thinking of getting into a Daniel Defense carbine, this model is still available. DD has dropped this one from their production line along with the DDM4 XV to focus on trying to keep up production with the rest of their line. A solid entry level DD carbine for the price. http://westernsportonline.com/index.php?ma...products_id=921
