    Question Just curiours. Old A-1 M-16s

    Curious. I see a lot of guys are interested in the old A-1. I was not around when they came out, Uncle Sugar had other plans for me.
    Were they available on the civilian market in semi auto only of course? Hell maybe even full auto, pre 68 would have been pre ban, with they tax stamp, yes, no.????
    Want to see the old ones still going strong. My God go too the Orient. Thai Military is still using them to great effect to shoot Cambodians trying to sneak across their border. Unlike, America, I like their style. They just shoot the illegals trying to sneak in, I like the Thais..
    Their also all over Mexico, I would guess, left over from when the C.I.A. was shipping them south,
    for whoever they did not like at the time?
    On the border in Thailand, few years back at a crossing check point.. Damn every Thai Soldier had the old A-1..
    Going on 50 years and still ticking.. Says something for them..
    My failed attempt at importing, good God I could have gave every member one for free.

    The M16 was the military version of the AR15, which came first before the military adopted it.

    Price 349.95 plus Shipping on line was $13 and change. I phone ordered and $12 and some change. Ordered a GPC fair to good stock set M16a1 style with trap door butt plate for about $39.95. They also have non trap door sets same condition and price. Google search Discount Shipping and call the number to get the discount code. My shipping was about $5. Hope I get a good butt plate.

    While your begging ask her for barrel for me. Finished a raw forged 7075 and a 80% casting a while back. Both are not anodized or painted. Probably use the cast and machine away the lower fence around the mag release for the A1 look. Need a barrel. Thought about buying an extension (locking lugs) and machining my own barrel. Finish it with Green Gray Gunkote and using Scotchbrite to give it the worn finish look to match the stock. Just thinking.

    before the last panic damn 20" pencil barrels were everywhere for $99 --today there scarce as hens teeth.

    i have seen a few a2 barrels for $110 @ JSE but they sell out quickly.

    alpha had citadel barrels for $99 forever i don;'t know if their OOS though.

    4th i think there was some kind of relationship with mattel back in the day -- i don't know if they were contracted for the plastic stocks or what--
