    Chiroone. I am no expert on them.. Other than squeezing the trigger.. Think the originals had 1 in 12 twist pencil barrels..
    Now their are 1 in 7 pencil barrels for sale.. Can not remember where I saw them?

    Looks good Bubba. I am jealous. One of these days I'm going to try and build an retro A1 clone.

    very nice retro ya built there!-- it is a lot more true to the OEM than mine is!

    those old triangle HGs got really tiring to hold on to after about the 16 hour mark! some how having one today it don't seem soo bad- i suppose because i can put it down for a minute and rest!-LOL

    i may build a 9m with one of my slabside uppers -- i yanked the slabside off the old a1 and put a flat-top on it for a 2-7 vortex scope--LOL

    i just cant see through the damn A1 peeps no mo-- no lie GI!

    I got mine finished as well. Came out real nice, But I think I got the sight a tiny bit cocked to the right. I might take it out again this week and run a couple more mags through it. While I was at the range a guy was buying a ar for 3500 bucks, I am sure it is nice but I think I will stick with my 700 dollar ar. Lol

    Any word on the condition on the lastest kit from Royal Tiger? Am worried about cracked metal and missing parts. Have an original hand guard and pistol grip bought for $8 back in the early 90s.

    BTW...NICE BUILD!

    Called Sportsman Guide and tried to get them to match Royal Tiger price. They said RT said cracked stock no match. This is the second time they pulled the NO price match. Only reason to SG is no BS return. When RT was IO they were a nightmare. Are they any better now?

    Hell Bubbamauser, you've gone this far and the lower looks so good , why not just refinish the upper to match with a OEM spec finish?
    That would be the route I'd probably take myself.

    That way I could wear out the finish myself ,, All over Again,,,,,

    I was at Wally World last Friday and they had several S&W Ar's for $780 something and Bushmasters @ 950 something. Back to normal prices again around here, NOW,,,,,,,,

    WHERE'S THE 22 RIM FIRE AMMO AT ??
