I always had to stone std millspec.being primarily a lefty in a right handed world just was more better for me… or getem past that 3000 rnd count. then they felt decent
Could not have said it better.
M16A1ish. A few modern touches like a 1/7 twist, M4 type feed ramps and a brass deflector. period correct are the A1 FS, 20" barrel, tear drop FA, A1 NOS pistol grip and furniture, trap door (A1) butt stock and USGI surplus (Colt) sling. The A1 style upper also has a USGI surplus rear sight. Also note the small raised part of the dust cover, and straight handguard ring, also period correct. This is a work in progress as the lower will be soon changed out to a correct A1 replacing the M4E1 style on it now.
Nice. Such a fine looking rifle.
I’ve had a retro A1 build planned for quite awhile now.
Keeps getting pushed to the back burner though.
Someday, I’ll invest my time into it.
If you do find the time or motivation, I think you’ll be quite satisfied. Using the more modern parts available make it a much better rifle than I remember carrying. Sighting in at 100yds. Lower shots adjusting windage, upper getting elevation dialed in.
Bushmasterar15, diamondback ar15, psa AR47, colt ar15 with family crest encraved. Really good shooters. All have really nice red dots or scopes now. Goat a sub 2000 I’m playing with now.
Here’s some pics of my most recent build. 22LR Side-folder.
It’s got a 4.5" barrel and a 5" flash can, 7" hand guard.
Only mag I have currently is a Blackdog 50 round drum.
Unfortunately the drum doesn’t fit with the brace folded.
Finally got around to getting some new pictures shot.
I’ll add a few per post until I get them all uploaded.
