Colt Offers Five Calif. Compliant Rifles

December 23, 2011  | 

Colt Defense is offering five rifles that are compliant with California's bullet-button laws, the company has announced.

The LE6920CA, three of Colt's Magpul-accessorized 6920s (the LE6920CMP-B, LE6920CMP-FDE, and the LE6920CMP-O) and the LE6940CA will be made available in California in 2012.

"We are pleased to offer such a varied assortment of rifles for California," said David Ridley, vice president of Colt Defense LLC. "This selection of guns, complete with the necessary bullet button, give sportsmen numerous options when choosing a quality Colt rifle that meets the state's compliance requirements."

The Colt 6920 Law Enforcement carbine offers a lightweight design and potent firepower capability. It weighs 6.95 pounds and measures 35.5 inches with the stock extended. The LE6920CA has a 16-inch barrel with a safe-semi rate of fire and an effective range of 600 meters.

The Colt LE6940CA is another popular option for tactical operators. This M4 rifle weighs less than the 6920 and offers a one-piece monolithic rail that extends from the rear of the upper receiver to the front sight. The rifle is built for long-range target acquisition. Other features of the LE6940CA include the A2 pistol grip, DCH rear sight, Colt flash suppressor and a nine-round magazine.

Colt's LE6920CMP-B, LE6920CMP-FDE and LE6920CMP-O are the bullet button versions of Colt's newest rifle offering, the LE6920MP. The black 6920 Colt M4 carbine can be paired with several of Magpul's most popular firearm accessories in either black, flat dark earth or olive drab. Magpul parts that come standard on these rifles include the MOE Vertical Grip (MVG), MOE Hand Guard, Generation 2 Rear Back-Up Sight (MBUS), MOE-K Hand Grip, MOE Trigger Guard, MOE Carbine Stock.

The law isn't a bullet button law, it's an assault weapons law that is so twisted that people with legal rifles are getting arrested because LEO's don't know the law. I'm a former Tactical Officer with the USCG and had a run in with a Federal Game Warden at Fort Hunter Liggett. He hassled me after he saw my AR-15 and during the course of the discussion, admitted that he didn't know the law and had to check with a state game warden the next day. The state officer had recently come out of the academy and "knew the law" according to the Fed Warden (who was also a former USCG officer). The next day, the state warden said that my AR-15 with a Monsterman Grip was legal, although I didn't have a bullet button on the weapon. The MMG prevents the thumb and first finger from being separate, so the rifle is cradled much like a M-14 stock, making it CA compliant.

Rick-you are right about Calif's convoluted gun laws and no doubt were made up by liberal anti gun politicians who don't have a clue. These laws mostly affect the law abiding while the criminals just ignore them. Unfortunately, these politicians keep getting elected.

These Ligislatures are a joke:
They don't want a rifle to be loaded with a great number of cartridges because they believe this will prevent someone from shooting numerous people to easily in that they have so many shot available. Give me a break: someone can shoot numerous people and then have to take less than five seconds to insert another magazine. A Bullitt button slows down the ability to shoot off successive rounds in that it will take you a few seconds to reload. The Bullitt Button hardly slows a shooter in reloading and getting off additional rounds.
