When I bought a brand new Colt 6920, I inspected it first at the shop. It was gouged and had Nicks and dings all over it. I refuse to accept it and had them order another one which came in fine

Typical from the lowest bid government contractor. I bought one in 2012 and sold it, a sloppy gun no better than a $400 Delton, probably worse.

Colt for way too long has relied on their name with no innovations or improvements, and now the quality is slipping even more. You can get a Daniel Defense for not much more and have a much better quality rifle. Colt is going to go the way of Winchester.

Horrible, does it go bang? Does it cut you while doing so? I would have refused pick up. Op talk to Colt and see if they will or can help

Am I the only one surprised by the $1100 price tag?

I was looking at 6920's last week, and was finding them from ~$690 - $750.

Did I miss something or did they go up in price?

I made a post about here on the site. No amount of gunsmithing could fit it, and a phone call and e-mail to Windam were ignored. Ended up swapping a stripped AP upper with the Windam. That worked like a champ. Fork Windam. Horrendous QC and zero tech support.

They have been in the business awhile, they know what they are doing. All the parts I have bought from Windam have been excellent quality
I do not mean to derail this thread, but I own a Windham Weaponry AR in 5.56 I have had it for a couple years now and put maybe 700 - 800 rounds through it. 100% function in dirty outdoor desert shooting with reloads or whatever I had on hand. I called Windham to ask a question and got a live person on the phone. Who was nice!

I kept it bone stock, including the WW carry handle. No mods at all other than what I needed to make it featureless. Even the sling is the one that came with the rifle.


Anyway, sorry OP. I'd go dump some rounds through that Colt. If it functions properly (it will) just treat it like the tool that it is. I bet a lot of the AR's out there have the same issues as yours, but many people don't even inspect the weapon that closely.

I bought a Wndham .308 on a whim boy was I a fool. Probably one of the finest crafted AR variants I've ever owned. DI perfection, perfectly gassed out of the box, CHF chrome lined barrel is a work of art. I dropped a Geissele SSAE in it. I dont speak French but if I did, 'est*magnifique.

However, the custom shop division produces some of the finest guitars I've ever seen or played. I own a 2009 built custom shop 1968 Les Paul Custom re-issue and it's flawless with some of the best woods I've ever seen from any guitar maker.

I also have some old pre 1970 Gibson stuff, most of that is quite good.

"Like a broken clock it's right twice a day" is modern Gibson.

Meanwhile, my 2012 Colt 6920 resides in someone else's place, glad I got rid of that turkey. My ^JD Machine^ (which made the sloppy lower for Colt too) is a far better rifle that is precise and tight. No wobbles nor rattles. The Criterion barrel eats Colt barrels for breakfast.

Just for fun I removed the grip on my 6920 and lo and behold, I found some strangeness. I don't know what this is, it's some kind of contouring. It's the same on both sides and does not seem random. It is a little rough, not all that smooth.

I don't think it's supposed to be there, it's not the same as the OP's, and I have seen it in other pics on the internet of 6920s, but it is new to me.

If this wasn't hidden under a grip, I would be unhappy with it. With this and the badly implemented selector stops, should I make a warranty claim on it?

I played in garage bands and local clubs in the 1980's - mid 1990's. I always had really bad second hand equipment, whatever I could afford, which wasn't much. Having been long retired from being any sort of performing musician, my recent jaunts into Guitar Center were rather shocking. The quality of some of the brands in the lower price ranges is actually very good, as well as the amplifiers.

I splurged on a Jackson and a Charvel guitar, since I wanted both badly in my youth and could never remotely afford either. I also picked up a Line 6 amp which sounds great, tons of volume, and a wide range of effects built into it. No need for a bunch of pedals, extra cables, and batteries.

Probably just dating myself here, but this gear is all 10X better than what I had when i was actually performing, and makes me think young musicians starting out now have a lot more quality gear in reach than there was 25 years ago.
