WEST HARTFORD, Conn. –-(  Colt Defense LLC, one of the world’s leading designers, developers, and manufacturers of rifles and carbines, is adding two additional models to its current list of five rifles that are compliant with California’s bullet button laws.

The new carbines available to shooters in California are the CR6720CA and CR6724CA.

“We are pleased to be expanding the list of products we offer to our customers in California,” said David Ridley, Vice President, Colt Defense LLC, “Offering seven rifles with the state’s required bullet button gives California sportsmen the opportunity to chose from a wider variety of Colt-quality guns to find one that suits them best.”

The CR6720CA and CR6724CA are the most accurate of the rifles in Colt’s Match Target line and are ideal carbines for target shooting, as well hunting and varmint shooting. Both rifles feature stainless steel, free-floating barrel that allows the barrel to flex as it should, without being constricted during firing. The 6720CA weighs nine pounds, measures 39 inches long, and features a 20-inch barrel. The 6724CA weighs 9.3 pounds, measures 43 inches long, and features a 24-inch barrel. The additional length of the barrels allows for increased firing distance.

Both rifles feature a 1-9” RH twist for lighter grain ammunition, a black A2 style buttstock, Colt flash suppressor, tubular handguard, and pistol grip. These direct gas system, locking bolt rifles each come in a matte black finish with a nine-round magazine and ship with a scope mount for additional accessories. They are chambered for 5.56×45 NATO (.223 Remington).

The first five California compliant guns released by Colt are the LE6920CA, three of Colt’s Magpul®-accessorized 6920s (the LE6920CMP-B, LE6920CMP-FDE and the LE6920CMP-O) and the LE6940CA.

You’re right. I’m going to buy another before the ban is in place. The bill calls for it being grandfathered. This is beyond stupid but the demo-craps have a super majority and can pass any law they chose.


caalifornions love guns to,unfortunately for those of us who live in california and have to put up with san francisco and hollywood tearing down our second ammendment rights, the majority of us lose. nra keep fighting and keep those guns coming. do not let the few silence the majority.


Not sure I'd even waste my time marketing to the Peoples Republic Of Kalifornia.

On the other hand, maybe that's exactly what they're counting on!

Carry on.


probably too late to the game,as they`re trying to outlaw bullet buttons and so-called assault rifles completely!
