The Colt LE6920 Advanced Law Enforcement Carbine is the tactical operator's answer to the demanding situations faced by the modern law-enforcement officer. This specially designed law-enforcement weapon system features many of the combat proven advantages of the military M4. With the 4-position buttstock fully retracted, the Law Enforcement Carbine is less than 30 inches in length and weighs only 5.65 pounds making it ideal for tactical deployment and traditional patrol. Colts unique direct-gas operating system eliminates the conventional operating rod and results in fewer and lighter components. The LE6920's straight-line construction disperses recoil straight back to the shoulder, increasing handling capabilities, especially during repeated fire. The 4-position sliding buttstock allows the weapon to adapt to users of different sizes and physical characteristics as well as various firing positions and clothing variations. A cartridge case deflector allows easy operation in both right- and left-handed shooting positions for increased tactical applications, while a muzzle compensator reduces muzzle climb and helps eliminate flash and dust signatures.
