Colt LE6933 ? Login/Join

So should have done this a long time ago, but finally looking to take the plunge on an SBR. I have a trust (set up locally), and was looking to buy an SBR off the shelf. From my limited research, it appears the Colt LE6933 is (was?) a solid choice. Given the state of the recent Colt transition I wasn't sure if this was still the case or not. On the auction site you can pick one up for around $1200 or so which seems to be a solid buy.

So my questions are is this still a good choice for SBR? If so, do I just purchase it online and then wait for the transfer to my Form 3 dealer, and submit my papers for a Form 4 and wait? Or would the collective suggest something else?

Thanks guys.

94- Check out the Colt LE6945....I went with the LE6945 and have been very happy with mine...I had a Colt LE6920 and used rhat lower as my SBR that I registered through an E-Filing before the 41P went into effect under my trust. Once I received mt stamp I sent out my lower for engraving and purchased a LE6945 complete upper on line....Mark

6933, 6943, and 6945 are all great options from Colt. I have two 6933 and a 6943. The only downside to the 6943 and 6945 are the fact that you are stuck with a picatinney rail fore-end. It doesn’t bother me as I like pic rail fore ends. Not a big deal and the 694x are very unique, soft shooting rifles.

Best place to buy has typically Clyde Armory in GA. Ratworx is also good. You buy from out of state FFL/SOT, they submit form3, transfer to your in-state dealer. Then you fill out/submit form4 to transfer from your in-state dealer to your trust.

Yup, 6933 is a solid choice. Nothing holds its value like a Colt.

Thanks guys, need to check with my FFL to see if he is capable of taking this transfer or if I need to look elsewhere.

Once you get a SBR, you can put a 9" 300 blackout upper on it or any caliber you choose. It spreads the cost of the 6933 over more calibers.

If your FFL does not also have a SOT to deal in title-2 firearms, you’ll need to seek out another. Personal Defense and Handgun Safety in Raleigh is who I recommend.

To save some money, you can opt to purchase it as just a complete lower and buy the upper, once the stamp clears. It will get the paperwork going and then you can start collecting uppers for it, in any caliber and barrel length you like.
Since it's a factory SBR, no engraving required. Just remember that you always have to keep an 11.5" upper around, since that's the registered configuration.

Yeah given the price the complete lowers are going for (then the upper), it's actually less to buy the complete SBR. There are actually several right now on the auction board for ~1100 complete. Need to get some items listed this weekend to get funds up!

Factory SBR is always preferable. At $1100 for a factory Colt sbr it's a no brainer.

This is not correct. That said, it would be foolish to sell off the original upper from a factory colt SBR.

My understanding is that you must always be able to return the SBR to the registered configuration, on demand or inspection so you must possess an upper in the barrel length listed on your stamped form.
I would be happy to learn otherwise but can you cite your source, hopefully with a link to ATF?
