Colt continues to expand on its M4 platform with the introduction of the new Colt Trooper Patrol Carbine. The Trooper, based on the 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 fore-end 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 fore-end with a Picatinny rail at 12 o'clock, and M-LOK mounting slots at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.
