Those looking for a hunting rifle for medium to large sized game animals would be well advised to use the Colt LE901-16S. Check out the video below to see this rifle up close.

Chambered in .308 Winchester, the LE901-16S has a full-floated, 16.1-inch chrome-lined barrel with a 1:12 twist. This rifle also includes ambidextrous operating controls — including the magazine release, bolt catch and safety selector — as well as a one-piece upper receiver for mounting optics, flip-up front and rear sights, an extended length of 37.5″, a collapsed length of 34.24″, a weight of 9.4 lbs, and a Matte Black finish.

In addition, the LE901-16S comes with an adapter block to swap out the .308 Winchester upper and install a Mil-Spec Colt 5.56x45mm NATO upper receiver to go along with the .308 Win lower, creating two calibers for one rifle. This action can be accomplished in roughly 60 seconds.

The manufacturer suggested retail price for the LE901-16S is not available on Colt’s website. See below for more information.
