Colt Advanced Law Enforcement Carbine

Description

The Colt Advanced Law Enforcement Carbine is a select-fire assault weapon chambered for .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO. The LEC differs from the original M4-style carbine in that it has a one-piece monolithic upper receiver that incorporates a continuous Picatinny rail from the rear of the receiver to the front, for easy mounting of accessories or optics. It also has a free-floating barrel, so the stock doesn’t interfere with the action when it heats up, and an adjustable stock. Colt recommends the LEC for law enforcement use or self-defense.     

The Law Enforcement Carbine is available for civilians and law enforcement. The civilian models (LE6940, LE6944 AND LE6943) come with either a 16.1-, 14.5- or 11.5-inch barrel and have an Rogers Super Stock, which is adjustable for length. And the full-auto version (R0923) comes with a 14.5-inch barrel and an M4 adjustable stock.

There’s also the LE6920 SOCOM, which is a new gun featured at the 2012 SHOT Show. It features Knight’s Armament quad rails and backup iron sights.
