I have a 6920CA and I know how everyone was saying that the lack of "Sporter" on the receiver made it CA legal but what about the LE6920 SOCOM?

The serial number starts with "LExxxxx" but there is no "Law Enforcement" or "6920" roll mark anywhere on the rifle.

Thanks

The Serial # designation does not matter. Only make and model does, since that is how the banned list works.

From the list:

Colt
Law Enforcement (6920)
Match Target (all)
* AR-15 (all)
Sporter (all)

I believe the SOCOM model is marked "M4 Carbine", so you are g2g.

That's what I thought as well, just needed to show a vendor that it is legal. Thanks!

I'm interested in this as well.

According to the Colt (http://www.coltsmfg.com/Catalog/ColtRifles/ColtCarbinesI.aspx) site, the model is LE6920SOCOM.

Is that sufficient difference to make it off-list? The flow chart (http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf) identifies "Colt: Law Enforcement (6920)" as a Category 2 AW. Technically, the socom is not LE6920, but it has LE6920 in its model number. Does this make it ok for CA?

Not a lawyer, but I don't think what is rollmarked on the receiver (M4A1 Carbine) matters. Like previously stated, make and model is what matters.

According to Colt, the the LE6920CA is CA compliant, you would think so is the LE6920SOCOM.....

If anyone can clarify, please feel free to chime in.

I believe they are. We can install a BB (Vamfire) and change out the mags for Colt 10rd mags for you if interested.

The different rollmark and the addition of SOCOM to the model name make all the difference. It just seems like Colt does not offer it with a BB and 10 round mag. A third party distributor or a call to Colt could probably fix that ( as stated below by C4iGrant )

M4 Carbine.
