For the first time Colt has released a new rifle for civilian and law enforcement consumers similar to their M4 Carbine.
The defining differences between the Colt M4 Carbine LESOCOM and the Colt M4A1 platform are the semi-automatic fire controls and the 16″ barrel with a 1/7 RH rifling twist, which are the defining differences between the LESOCOM and the military M4. Equipped with a Knights Armament Rail System, Matech rear back-up iron sight set for distances out to 600 meters, and an ambidextrous fire control selector. The new rifle features an M4 buttstock, pistol grip and flash suppressor. The rifle is chambered for .223 Remington (5.56×45 NATO) and comes with two 30-round Colt magazines.
“Only two variations separate this rifle from what we currently package for the United State government,” said David Ridley, Vice President of Colt Defense, LLC, “The Colt LESOCOM is as close as a civilian can get to shooting the same carbine as those defending our country.”
