Colt Introduces the Colt Trooper® Patrol Carbine
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (August 8, 2017) – Colt continues to expand on its legendary M4 platform, which has been duty-tested by the world’s most elite Military and Law Enforcement agencies, with the introduction of the new Colt Trooper® Patrol Carbine. The Trooper®, based on the class-leading LE6920, offers customers another great point of entry into the world of duty-grade Colt AR-15® carbines.
“The Trooper® offers a really great opportunity for fans of the Colt AR-15® platform ,” said Justin Baldini, Product Director for Colt. “We set out to create something that is right in line with what today’s Colt M4 customer wants, so we started with our industry-standard LE6920 and worked with Centurion Arms to develop a new M-LOK® capable free-floated forend just for the Trooper®. The result is a modernized pro-quality carbine that’s ready for your choice of optic or iron sights. It represents an exceptional value to folks looking to get into the world Modern Sporting Rifles and another excellent option for enthusiasts looking to add another Colt to their stable.”
The Trooper® Patrol Carbine is offered in 5.56 x 45 NATO, and features a 16.1” barrel and a 13” M-LOK® capable Centurion Arms forend with a Picatinny rail at 12 o’clock, and M-LOK® mounting slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. It features a standard M4 buttstock and an A2 pistol grip, and comes with a 30-round Magpul® P-MAG® Magazine. The Trooper® (SKU – LE6920-R) retails for $1,049 MSRP.

While similar in looks (due to the forend and lack of a fixed front sight) to the Talo exclusive Ken Hackathorne designed Colt Combat Unit Carbine, there are some differences with the Trooper. Along with a $250.00 lower MSRP, the Trooper has standard furniture instead of the Magpul pistol grip, stock and triggerguard. Also, the Trooper has a carbine length as opposed to mid-length gas system. The moniker of the new rifle is a callback to Colt’s Trooper revolver introduced in 1953, and fits well into their LE6920 line. If you’re looking for a good, M-lok equipped AR, perhaps the Trooper will give you “Piece of Mind”.
