Knowing that the LE6920 and is banned in CA and now having the SP6920 allowed what are the actual differences between both platforms?

edit:So from what i've gather its the same identical gun and parts, with different markings.. yet one is legal and the other is not...?

It's the roll mark that matters not what the rifle is made of...so if they make a slight change to it then it becomes legal. This is because they cannot ban guys by type...only by specific model numbers.

I believe it is because the roll mark says M4 Carbine not LE6290.

serial # is not the model name

I do believe that is the first time I see someone on this board say the words "make sense" when referencing CA gun laws... I usually hear "stupid", "pointless", "*** backwards"... ect.

I dont think LE6920 is banned, is what is marked on the receiver, referance the AW flowchart for the forsaken names.
having an LE marked on the receiver just give you brownie point among your shooting peers, because it allegedly is harder to come by then usual " SP6920 or "M4" marked receiver.

Even out of California, we have clowns advertising, and presumably selling the LE rifles for outrageous prices because it's not marked SP. For me, two letters don't make a $1,200 gun into a $2,000 gun.

Colt Law Enforcement models are as close to the Mil M4-A1 that a civilian can get. I had a LE6921 that was deregistered and removed from the NFA Registry.
