patrol rifle choices

we are looking to get patrol rifles, .223 cal.

small dept. 8 rifles total, compact as possible but not pistol rifles like the Sig.

need mounting choices for CV, Chargers, and impalas.


cost matters, prefer to stay at 10K total.

any ideas?

im in a hurry so im just throwing this out to see what the CT brain trust thinks.

thanks.

Colt 6920s, lights, slings, and mags should fall in your budget. Multiple mounts for different vehicles may be a pain and trunk carry may be simpler. If you can swing it, Aimpoint PROs would be a worthwhile addition, but at $400 a pop that's significant.

directly from colt?

im looking for l.e. pricing as well to cut out the middle man. we have an ffl for the transfers.....

14"bbl preferred, colapsable stock, basic gun nothing fancy.

looking on line all i see are dealers who are priced high and out of stock.

a source would be greatly appreciated.

i might call colt directly.

Colt will absolutely offer a rifle with a shorter barrel.

Yup. Several options for SBRs from Colt.

I bought mine from DSG Arms. They offer LE/agency discounts. Got mine before the frenzy (Colt 672) and it was under $950 shipped.

IIRC Colt makes a 14.5 inch version of the 6920. I can't remember the model number. It is on their website.

Off the top of my head, I think that's the 6933.

6933 is the 11.5" barrel. 6921 is the 14.5"

It's a bit pricier, but look at the LE packages from Daniel Defense. They offer an SBR package as well. Packages include an Aimpoint PRO, sling, three PMAGs.

I just went through that. DD is good, but too expensive. It was cheaper to go with even a Noveske (good discount) and buy optic/sling separately.

Cowboywannabe, PM me your email and I'll send you a spreadsheet I came up with working on a similar dilemma. I had some specific requirements, but it could still be helpful.

Colt 6943 would be worth a look. Railed upper would make adding lights and sling a bit easier. If you add red tots down the road you already have fold down sites. May be a bit close on the budget though. I'd certainly go with a short barrel. For a patrol rifle it makes a lot of sense from CQB roles it'll likely be used in to easier mounting on the cars.

I would say to get the S&W M&P 15 but they run about $900 each for LE pricing. I'm sure they have a cheaper price for a department looking to buy multiple rifles though.

That's what floated to the top of the heap when we looked at price v. features v. quality.
