    That’s the next thing on my radar. Did that lower come from Gunbroker?

    My Hydramatic (obviously the lower is a reproduction) is the slickest AR I own. It's much smoother than any of my Colt's:






    These old H&R's (all original and never rebuilt) rattle and feel cheap by comparison:

    No, I make them. I sell them as 80ís on nodak or PRI A1 lowers. Iím not here to advertise, they arenít cheap... but they are awesome. I wonít stamp them on incorrectly profiled lowers, the PRI is an altered A2 but it works. There are lasered a2ís around.

    A friend started this, we planned some collaborations (maybe I did lol ) but he ended up letting me take over.

    Willhelm, nice guns. I would have left the upper alone but it was a $300 centerfire kit with a black/blue in worn spots... rough upper.

    This is the only one Iíll have with me at Sar West next week w/Brian aka AZAK. I wanted it to look snazzy even if wrong color.

    These pics will do until tomorrow: this is a PRI



    Here are Nodak A1ís:

    Looks good!

    Did you "fix" the weird NDS rear with your finished one? Hard to tell.

    Front lug needs material removed, flash toned down on some in rear, not GM.

    I want crushed stamped/Rollmarked fn preferably a2, then any balimony arsenal. Oddball contract stuff, if someone brings me any of this you will be greatly rewarded.

    I have had tons of great discussions with industry leaders on how to achieve results I want. I hope I donít have to learn to anodize too.

    I like the 2-position stock and that A1E1 (C7) upper with the big button forward assist, too. I am looking for an upper like that eventually to try and clone one of the rifles used in the bank heist shootout from the film 'Heat'.

    As for anodizing, you could probably do learn to do it yourself in your (well ventilated) garage if you wanted to. There is a guy on the M40 and M14 forums who takes old Redfield 3-9 scopes and anodizes them that matte green color in order to properly clone a Vietnam-era USMC M40 sniper rifle.

    I was issued a brand new GM one right out of the box from the factory. After taking it to the range to zero it we had to send it to depot repair as it came with a bent barrel. It could not get on paper even at 25 yards. When you looked down the barrel you could see the pronounced bend in it.

    Since then I was not to happy if someone wanted to issue me one. LOL
