I have long been a fan of the old-school Colt M4 Commando. However, as romantic as the rifle is, it simply has not kept up with the times.
Enter the Colt 6933 EPR, Enhanced Patrol Rifle, an updated M4 Commando. Gone are the old clamshell handguards, carry handle, and A-frame front sight. The new upgrades include a Bravo B5 collapsible stock, Centurion free-float handguards, and Magpul Pro flip-up sights. The 6933 ships from Colt with an ambidextrous safety, advantageous for a few reasons, as explained in the video.
The trigger broke clean at just under seven pounds with a bit of take-up and a small amount of overtravel. This just about what you would expect from a quality duty trigger.
The Magpul Pro sights are an upgrade over the standard Magpul sights. Being steel, they will hold up to abuse better while offering a smaller profile. The rear sight allows for windage adjustments, while the front sight post is the elevation adjustment.

We ran some 500 rounds through the 6933 using the supplied 30-round Magpul magazine, 30-round Hexmag, and Colt metal magazines. We also added a 20-round metal Colt magazine. About half the rounds were fired through a few different silencers.
