    Could someone please explain to me why the prices on Colt 6920 and 6940 AR15's just recently jumped from around $1100 to $1500? I've been wanting one of these for sometime now and just noticed this price jump on buds, cheaperthandirt, and impact guns last night. Is this the new norm or will the price come back down? Thanks for the advice.

    Because they no longer make the LE versions...

    I haven't seen this one yet. But sometimes manufacturer price increases come in February. That might explain it.

    Because it cost more to feed that little pony on the side these days.

    I would say its because they are discontinuing the LE marked guns for sale to the public and as a result if you want a Colt you're gonna have to buy the SP. LE's are going up because now they are "rare".

    probably a little proactive margining. They are still listed at $1149 at southern ohio gun. shipping is cheap.
