Colt M4A1 SOCOM Carbine, 2018 factory direct LE6920 SOCOM
Update: June 14, 2018: We Will be and out of stock on this item. Very popular !!
IF YOU CAN ADD TO CART, WE HAVE IT READY TO SHIP
We expect a small wave in July, and then another small wave in August, and so forth. This will always be a very hard to find item. This is our specialty, so we have hooks into Colt and each distributor to buy when they release.
This is the 2018 factory limited release Colt M4A1 carbine rifle, in semi-automatic. Direct from Colt factory, still in factory wrapping. Nothing added, nothing taken off. Released starting in late May, 2018, this is limited run from Colt, but do expect a small trickle continuing this year. The total number of Colt LE 6920 SOCOM rifles released will be small. This is a collector's item, and the foundation for a Block1 clone build.
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.
This rifle is fully loaded will all the bells and whistles, and is the 2018 new limited release.

MPN: Colt LE6920SOCOM
This is a new rilfe: Colt LE6920-SOCOM limited release in May, 2018. At Charlie's we have the M4A1 SOCOM upper assembly, the full 6920SOCOM lower receiver assembly, the Colt limited release ultra-prime 2017 6920 SOCOM rifle and the stripped M4A1 lower.
Note: This is the new limited release 2018 rifle Do not confuse this with an HBPW or other newer or older releases. The 2018, like the 2017 release, has all the bells and whistles, ready for battle.
Be advised: This 2018 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. This is not. 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. The rifles cannot be returned. Make sure you understand what a military rifle is and is not before you purchase.
Also, a comment on pricing. We are trying to price in such a fashion that we are getting a fair price, but still making this available. From time to time, you might see another shop selling for $100 cheaper, or $300 more. We will not likely be the cheapest, but will strive to have what you need. Demand for this rifle is very high. We want you as a customer for life, so we are not increaing the price to what we could (and some do) sell this for, but then again, you don't go to Starbucks or Peets and ask for a Cappuccino and ask if the barista can price match Costco's coffee price.
If you are looking for a military spec M4A1 carbine, look for the 2017 or 2018 SOCOM rifle. The HBPW is nice, but it is not a SOCOM. Many upgrades on this rifle. Also, an earlier SOCOM model had the Troy quad-rail and a 16" barrel. That is good, but not as nice as this rifle or the 2017. The 2017 vintage is very perfectly fitting, and handfitted. The 2018 is more of a battle rifle, and you will find some oil oosing out, and other places that are dry and need oil.
*Note on KAC Vertical Grip: This is a newly released rifle, and initially, when we got pics from Colt, we did not know if the vertical grip was included or not, so we had posted that it was an option. The first batch of rifles, we did not see, as we had our distribution partners send directly to our customers. It turns out that the vertical grip is included, so we have adjusted the language. No foul. We did not know what we did not know. Anyone who paid extra will get a refund on demand.
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.
NOTE: MUST READ FOR FIREARM AND LOWER RECEIVER ORDERS:
THIS IS A SERIALIZED FIREARM. IT MUST SHIP TO AN Federal Firearms License holder. No civilian exceptions.
When you check-out: We no longer take PayPal, as it has caused some confusion on the purchase of firearms, which is contrary to PayPal policies, and we had no way to retrict it just for FFL items.
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. It would be good to know your FFL and their shipping address before purchasing. If you know the FFL address, please put this in your shipping address at check-out. Any deviation from this, and your order could be delayed. Sorry, have to have strict controls here. We have a very manual process to reconcile orders to FFL transfer agents. The easier you make it for us, the less likely your order will be held-up. This is a highly regulated process, and compliance is monitored and enforced by the ATF.
Also your FFL must contact us by email, and send us a scanned copy of their firearms license. We prefer a .pdf copy, and not a .jpg. This is your responsibility to obtain and have emailed to us, or snail mail. We do not have a fax machine. Best practice is for your FFL to note your name and order number in the email header. We will not follow-up with your FFL. They should send to: FFL@charliescustomclones.com . If you forget, you can email us at the return address of any of the order confirmations that you receive.
Note: California residents, click here for CA compliant processing. This will also work for New York residents. We will act on your behalf and instructions to ship to restrictive states, but ultimately, it is your responsibility to know the local and state laws. We are in Virginia, and cannot, and do not know all the nuances of other states. If we ship to your FFL, and there is an issue, we cannot accept a return, so please make sure that you know and follow your local and state laws.
Please note our shipping timelines. We do not ship immediately. Also, if you choose the free 5-7 day shipping, those orders ship after all other forms of shipping chosen. Express shipping is given priority.
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:
