been looking at them pretty hard and will probably be purchasing one! a buddy of mine hooked me up with a sweet retro slickside upper and I feel obligated to do it right and get a proper lower. he pointed me to moores militaria and they have some awesome stuff. Has any one used the a1 style barrels from sarco? was looking at them too.
looking to build an early m-16 clone(early as in issued with no foreward assist, triangular handgaurds, 3prong). I shot redjackets retro m-16 at both his birthday bash shoots and just love the gun! dang your m-16 will!! :grin:
I initially ordered the barrel assembly from Sarco, but at the time they were backorderd. They have them now. I found mine at a gunshow. Think I paid $150 for it. It's made by Colt. I pretty much scoured the show and got a lot of the misc parts like gas tube, delta ring, barrel nut and bolt/carrier.
To the discerning eye, it's not a true A1 clone. A1's didn't have a shell deflector or delta ring. If anyone knows where I can find a correct ring, I'd love to get one. Also, the mag isn't correct, but I do have straight 20 rounders for it and a NOS nylon sling.
my freakin olympic target model has been torn down and rebuilt at the kitchen table so many times, it should have its own placemat! :lol: now i have a mancave so I have a spot to do this stuff! :dance:
