Owning modern sporting rifles and modern sporting carbines is far more fun for me now that there is a shooting range nearby that is equipped to handle them. I picked up the LE6920 on Saturday (after the Illinois requisite one-day waiting period for long guns) and it is now snuggled safely away with its brethren. It did come with a standard capacity 30-round magazine, but I prefer the looks (and handling) of an AR15 sporting a lower capacity 20-round mag. Do I maintain a goodly supply of standard capacity magazines? Oh, you betcha. Doesn't everybody?
These markings carry a lot of sentiment and a lot of collectable clout. I'm not alone in hoping that Colt will begin selling partial and complete lower assemblies.
Although I am infatuated, if not enamored, with the civilian version of the M4 Carbine, this old Colt sporting rifle is my favorite shooter. Practice will never make me perfect, but it may make me a better shooter. Regardless, target shooting is just plain fun.
