    I am trying to find either a Colt 6920 or an M4A3-style Bushmaster and damn... this is rough! Everyone and their dog is buying factory M4geries right now. All the local places are selling them as soon as they get them. The only place I could get a solid answer from is an outfit in Arkansas (you arfcommers probably know who I'm talking about) who is looking at a >1month wait on 6920's and ~2 weeks on any Bushmasters.

    you cant find them because they are being flooded to the streets in preparation to mow down all the kids walkiing home from school.

    Yes, I'd just build a custom one. I had Red Stick Firearms (www.redstick-firearms.com) build one for me and it only took a week and a half for me to get it. I can also guarantee that it will out shoot any off the shelf Colt or Bushmaster.

    People snagging them up in case Kerry wins and put's his new ban in place.

    Sadly it's the majority reason the local shops around this area are having a hard time keeping any in stock.

    Yeah it sucks that Colt's shitheaded attitude resulted in a huge demand for their product :(

    Nazareth_JA: contact info for this wonder store you're talking about please?

    they're all over my local store. they're taking orders for anything they don't have, and it'll be in within the week, or less. colt sucks anyways, don't give your money to those bastards.

    The local stores here in Houston have the Colt for about 650-750.00$ I've got an old colt pre-ban barell (tapped end for compensators or whatnots :dunno: ) and post-ban stock that I found in a pawn shop for 250.00$$ ...go figure.

    I'm pretty sure they don't :) If they're selling 6920's for that then they're crazy or bankrupt.

    Just by a complete Stag M4 lower from www.eaglefirearms.net and a complete M4 upper from www.cmmginc.com and there you go. Both places have what you need in stock, and are excellent companies with outstanding customer service.

    My FFL was sold out last week and he probably won't have any next week either.
