The Colt LE6940 Monolithic Advanced Law Enforcement Carbine, an upgrade of the 6920, have started popping up for sale. The rifle features Colt’s new monolithic upper receiver. This 1-piece receiver is machined from aluminum billet and includes a full length rail.

The LE6940 has a 16.1″ free-floating, barrel, MaTech back-up rear iron sight and gas block mounted front sight. The rifles pictured are semi-automatic, but I am sure Colt will produce a variant with a rock-and-roll switch for law enforcement.
The Colt name does not come cheap, although neither do monolithic receivers, and if you can find one for sale it will probably cost you $2400-$2800. It does come with two 20 round magazines and a sling … if that makes the price easier to swallow.
