I have a question about the older LE6920 I bought mine just after the AWB lifted and was something I rarely seen at the time. It is the reason why I bought it. Well I've owned the rifle for some years now and figured today was a good time to bring it in to the local gun for a good cleaning of the gas tube. 10 minutes later they called me to come pick up my rifle because I wasn't law enforcement and when I got there they started to ask me if the rifle was full auto... They said that colt puts some kind of block on the Safety switch and mine didn't have one. I know that it doesn't shoot auto or burst so my question is what are they talking about?? And why would they question the Restricted markings now? Anyways The weird thing about it is I've had them work on this rifle before and no questions asked. So after telling them that they said they would work on it. Should I be worried that when I go pick it up the cops will be there to pick me up? If they questioned the markings what would the local police department think?

1. Sounds like you ran into an idiot.

2. There's no need to clean the gas tube.

Exactly what I was thinking.

OP: Do some serious lurking over on m4carbine...

Especially if they're telling him he needs to get his gas-tube cleaned.

I guess I never knew it didn't need to be cleaned I've had the rifle for so many years and shot an uncountable number of rounds thru it. I just figured it needed a good cleaning by now. But I'm glad I'm the only one to think the guy was goofy for questioning me.

62,000 PSI will keep your tube clean all by itself.

Yep, find a new shop to deal with. Not being rude, but that kind of info is basic stuff (gas tube cleaning and the Colt issue) that any gun shop should know.

Not rude at all it's why I ask you guys first. The gas tube was turning black on the outside so that's why I took the time to bring it in. The am I law enforcement question made me kind of mad.

This is the dumbest gun shop story I have ever heard before.

And no - no one gives a crap if your gun says Oncology Patients Only on the side. When you go to pick up your gun make sure to call them dopes. I sure as hell would.

Those same guys will tell him to change his muffler bearings, 710 cap, and even his flux capacitor as well........

On second thought maybe that shop should call the ATF 1-800-HOLYCRAP number. Probably worth a good laugh as they learn there are hundreds of thousands of these guns out there on the market and one of the most common milspec available to the public.

So much fail in that shop. They are FUD idiots.

I'm not buying a colt if it means I have to take it to the gun shop to clean it.

I surprised they didn't call the AFT! Seeing it's MN!:rofl: So tell us how much did this "Cleaning" cost you? If it was more then $1 you got ripped off as thats about three rounds of 5.56mm that would have done all the work.:faint:

Not neccessarily. If it cost more than the cost of a new gas tube ($13), then it was a ripoff.

But yes, generally, gas tube cleaning is not needed.

Let me clear this up, The Rifle is easy to clean nor have I ever had any issue or problems. I've owned the rifle since the AWB lifted in 04 or 05. So after 7 years of countless hours at the range and more ammunition thru it then fleet farm has in stock for a year, I figured it was time to have her looked over. I also "thought it was a good Idea to look at the gas tube" since I never cleaned it. Before this post I didn't know the gas tube didn't really need to be clean. Needless to say the rifle has zero issues. The main reason I posted was because I thought it was strange for the guy to call me asking me if I worked in Law enforcement, Then telling me they wouldn't work on it because of the Restricted markings.Then looking at it anyways... No they didn't charge me anything for looking at the rifle and they didn't have to clean it.. Thanks for your help on my post..

if you really want to get it clean, you need 5 gallon bucket of prop wash. Go to any small airport and ask around for it. Bring your own bucket and it will probably be free.

Man don't I know this. I've tested that theory several times after a night of too much beer. :cool:

The best way to clean it is with flight line. Dip the flight line in the prop wash and run it carefully in and out of the gas tube from the breach end. Best done with a cold beer.

There are other ways but I've found the aforementioned to be the most convenient.
