I had several guys tell me there are cheaper ARs on the market but then I also was told that since I'm just starting out in the AR side of the hobby, I should start with the Colt. It's a premium product which is well-made. So far, all I've done is read the manual, dry fire and field strip. Indeed the gun is well-made. In reading on various forum sites, Colts are also very reliable.
At the time of my purchase, there were a couple of on-line vendors who had a slightly lower price but they didn't have the gun available. Hinterland had the best price on the L6940CA I could find at a vendor which had the gun in stock.
This is the second rifle I've purchased at Hinterland and twice in a row, now, the service has been quick. California gun sales are complicated compared to other states, but Hinterland knew the drill. They even had my FFL's number in their system. That made the purchase even easier. If you live in Santa Barbara Co., you can't go wrong with Goodland Guns in Goleta.
Love my new carbine and next time I need to buy a gun on-line, I'll be back to Hinterland.
