Colt LE6960 Capacity

The Colt LE 6960 is chambered in 5.56x45mmNATO (.223 Remington when measured in Freedom Units) and accepts all AR15 pattern magazines.  This allows for capacities of 20, 30 and 40 rounds in double-stack magazines while also allowing capacities of 60 and 100 rounds in quad-stack and drum magazines.
Thanks to its pencil-profile barrel, lightweight handguard and proper selection of components, the Colt LE 6960 has an impressive unloaded weight of 6.5 pounds.  With an overall length equal to the typical AR15, the absence of an entire pound gives this rifle top marks for mobility in an intermediate caliber rifle.

The Colt LE 6960 is assembled with quality-made mil-spec internal components and properly machined parts.  The receivers are forged from 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum and all aluminum components sport a Type-3 hard anodize coating to prevent damage from weather and wear.
