Colt M4A1 SOCOM Carbine, 2018/2019 with M4A1 lower

This is the 2018/2019 Colt M4A1 carbine rifle, in semi-automatic, with the US Government Property markings, Colt Factory model LE6920SOCOM


Features a 14.5" barrel:  heavy SOCOM profile, with a 1.6" factory pinned and welded extended A2 Colt flash hider.  Since the barrel is pinned and welded, this is NOT a short-barreled rifle (SBR), not an NFA item, requiring a special tax stamp.  This is street legal.

  • Colt factory M4A1 carbine, matched upper and lower receiver, direct from Colt
  • 14.5" Colt SOCOM barrel, factory pinned and welded at the factory to 16.1" with an extended A2 muzzle device; CAGE Code rollmarked barrel, factory configured in the upper receiver.
  • Colt M4A1 marked lower receiver (serial numbers begin in CR), early rilfes were roll-marked and had some issues, newer production rifles tend to be engraved, like FN does.
  • Colt M4 factory upper receiver (note:  late 2019 shipments have no CAGE Code markings, some might)
  • Knights Armament KAC M4 quad RAS rail with three (3) KAC rib covers
  • Matech / Picatinny Engineering 600m rear USGI back up sight
  • Colt factory installed front side sling swivel
  • Colt ambidextrous safety selector, factory installed
  • Colt / P&S Products standard M4 "waffle" stock
  • Colt bolt carrier group with MPC marked bolt; some carriers are marked with a "C", luck of the draw, as Colt is making changes in 2019, installed by Colt in the upper receiver.
  • Colt mil-spec charging handle, installed by Colt in the upper receiver
  • Colt 4 position buffer / extension tube, with Colt buffer and factory staked castle nut, all installed at the Colt factory in the lower receiver.
  • full Colt (Hartford) factory installed lower parts and Colt A2 grip
  • Colt standard capacity (30 rnd) magazine
  • Knights (KAC) Vertical Grip


Be advised:  This 2018 and 2019 SOCOM is a true Colt battle rifle, produced like DOD contract rifles are produced.  You will see blemishes.  Colt is known for uneven roll marks, oil, no oil, handling marks, minor scratches, black anodizing and gray anodizing, chaulky grips.  The 2017 SOCOM was a very good fit and finish.  The 2018 'vintage' were a little beat up.  2019 is fairing better, but this is a battle tool, not a museum piece.  Be prepared.  Also, the rifle was fired a number of times for testing.  There will be brass marks on the upper, and on the bolt, and the BCG will show signs of brass and wear marks.  Furthermore, the rifles are in boxes, and are shipped as-is.  We cannot tell you what your rifle looks like.  This is what Colt is all about.  It is not LaRue Tactical or a Les Baer.  Those manufacturers make fine rifles with great finishes.  Colt is not known for fine finishing.  The rifles cannot be returned.  Make sure you understand what a military rifle is and is not before you purchase.

You can trust Charlie's.  We have sold more of these rifles since they first came out in May of 2018 than any other dealer.  Take a look at our feedback.  Charlies is both a dealer for Colt rifles and parts and an OEM, meaning that we buy Colt products for custom builds.  We love our custom builds, but this is 100% factory direct product.


NOTE:  Free Shipping option does not apply to full rifles, unless purchased with a riflescope.  If you choose free shipping, we will add shipping later, and send you a bill for UPS shipping.


THIS IS A SERIALIZED FIREARM.  IT MUST SHIP TO AN Federal Firearms License holder.  No civilian exceptions.

A firearm cannot be sent directly to you.  I am sure you know this, but for the fake-news reading this, who might think that a firearm can be mailed to a buyer, I have to reiterate:  A firearm or federal regulated serialized item (like a receiver or suppressor), only a federally licensed firearms dealer may receive such an item.

Be sure to read our return policy.  While your satisfaction is our primary concern, we are limited in a highly regulated business environment by what we can and cannot do, and the number of local, state and federal regulations.  We do not accept returns for ammunition and firearms, other than obvious defects.  Your gun dealer or transfer agent is responsible for inspection for defects:
