MSRP is $749., a local shop had it marked down to $699. then $599. Got mine for $599. when Colt gave you a second Magpul mag and TruGlo red dot sight with mount. My only regret is that I didn’t purchase the second one he had.
This one has a LE serial number. They were produced with a Colt lower, so your getting half a Colt. The upper is a Performance Forge upper, not sure who did the milling. I have to say I have Zero complaints on this gun.

gun broker has them around 700 bucks without a rear sight. But that’s the point: it doesn’t have any options on it. One attaches those things to it after purchase.
So you could put a $50 sight on it or a $150 sight on it.

The rear sight typically provided by colt seems to be the carry handle (think le6920) which most people take off and replace with something else. Rear sight is definitely not a deal breaker in my opinion. Crappy components however would be.

if they price it about 250 cheaper, they can really rake in the volumne sails. They need to provide a rear site also.

,Hell,just the Colt lowers were the deal maker to me on these. You want them for 250$ less with the rear site too ? I’m telling y’all these are a kick ass value. Like the iron sites backup but I put Aimpoint Pros on both the som bitches primary.

Too bad Colt’s handlers kept the head in Hartford. When they leave Connecticut, I’ll give it a second look. But until then, cursory looks only.

No rear sight and an unlined barrel, when for $10 LESS (comparing MSRP) you can get the S&W M&P Sport II that includes a MBUS rear sight and a nitride-finished barrel for outstanding corrosion and wear resistance.

Remind us again how many times Colt has been on the brink of bankruptcy?

Sooo, Colt “UPGRADED” it, keeping the dust cover and forward assist, two things that should have never been chopped to save a dollar. Now they have the same thing Bushmaster sells as it’s Patrolmans carbine, without the included detachable handle/sight.
BUT, it is stamped “COLT”….

Being lowers stamped COLT was the main thing to me. That was the deal maker !

So, where/how are they cutting corners to make these less expensively than the M4? Is it merely by not providing the rear sight? By not putting the gov’t profile cut on the barrel? Or are there Chinese internals?

Cutting corners on this one might be more than we bargain for since Colt is never this inexpensive. Colt still has to make a profit in selling this rifle. The few minor omissions that we can see surely do not warrant such a low price. It makes you wonder of the longevity and quality parts here.
