The new Colt 6940P is an advanced piston-operated AR-15 with unmatched advantages. Originally designed for military and law enforcement use, this is the upgraded PISTON system version of the LE6940, which is itself an evolution of the 6920 or LE6920.
What’s the big deal about a piston driven AR-15? Traditional AR-15's use a direct gas impingement system which sends a hot, dirty gas into critical areas of the rifle resulting in fouling and possible malfunction. A piston driven system re-routs these gases making it run cleaner, cooler, more reliably, and will even increase the rifle’s life span.
What makes the Colt piston system stand out against other gas-piston ARs is the unique Articulating Link Piston (ALP) operating system. The ALP system is specifically designed to increase mechanical accuracy, extend service life of the rifle, and for ease of disassembly, cleaning, and reassembly. Instead of striking part of the bolt carrier directly, the ALP system converts downward force to rearward force which reduces the inherent stress in the piston stroke by allowing the rifle to cycle linearly and allows for deflection and thermal expansion thus eliminating carrier tilt. Not only does this increase accuracy, but it also improves durability over competing piston systems which tend to push the bolt carrier downwards and into the wall of the buffer tube leading to accelerated wear and even chipped and shaved metal. Also extending service life, the ALP system consists of a hardened piston sleeve surrounding the piston, which reduces the cyclic rate and reinforces reciprocating parts and even the regulator and gas-piston are hard chromed to reduce wear and ease maintenance. The system parts are even machined to make backwards or upside down reinstallation impossible so take down and reassembly is a breeze.
The Colt LE6940 features the patented one-piece monolithic upper receiver which incorporates a continuous Mil-Spec rail from the rear of the upper receiver to the front sight. This is a rock-solid platform for mounting optics systems providing for complete repeatability due to the total elimination of external pressure from influencing point of impact shifts. Featuring the quality and accuracy one expects from Colt; both upper and lower receivers are made from a CNC-machined 7075-T6 aluminum forging and its true free-floating barrel provides for the ultimate in accuracy.
The Tactical Warfare system utilizes the standard Rogers collapsible stock, gas-block mounted front flip-up sight with bayonet lug, and a MaTech backup rear sight with adjustments that move the sight in half inch increments at 100 yards; as well as a Sightmark red-dot scope and compatible UAG 3X magnifier dual mounted on innovative slip-to-side mounts, as well as a CQB laser sight. This sight system provides for maximum versatility and flexibility to adapt to any shooting situation in an instant. The magnifier and red-dot sight co-witness perfectly for improved long range target acquisition. Flip the magnifier to the side for fast target acquisition with the red-dot scope only. Flip both optics to the side for use of the back-up iron sights alone. The laser sight is center mounted for constant x-axis zero at any distance and perfectly positioned with the Magpul AFG2 (angled fore grip) to be activated without repositioning your hands. To decrease weight and improve comfort and handling, this 6900 series Colt also features a Magpul MOE Plus grip, Magpul enhanced trigger guard, Magpul XTM enhanced rail covers, and a Magpul polymer 30 round PMAG.
Compare the relative quality vs. cost of the Colt 6940 to an M4 from LMT, LWRC, BCM, Daniel Defense, CMMG, Bushmaster, Sig Sauer, S&W M&P, Noveske, or any other manufacturer and you won’t be disappointed! The Tactical Warfare edition of the Colt 6940 might just be the ultimate AR15!
