    Default 601 lower

    I am happy with it for a 1st 80% but I will need some bondo , Drill press as a mill leaves a little to be desired need to lock down the mill table a lot better

    Thanks,

    Guys over on ARF caught that I missed the "S" curve at the mag release so I'll be back on that this week if I get some time.

    Nice. I need to cut the S curve on mine. I only cut the lower fence on mine. My Colt is a flat side. Been looking at photos of early M16 with prong flash hiders that have only the partial upper fence. Most of the photos of M16a1 show a full fence. My cast receiver was acquired about 15yrs ago from a fun show in Houston. Is your receiver the one on GB that is cast. The front hinge on yours is closer to original than mine. Have you considered JB Weld instead of Bondo? Got my kit at Royal Tiger. Got better furniture at GPC. Early style butt with no trap door.

    Willie,

    Yeah, this is the $35.00 cast on gunbroker, I am trying to duplicate a 601 I have already done the upper and the charging handle. This one is all parts from various sources not a kit. I did a a1 from a parts kit from centerfire and was happy with it I used a full fence but I have another 80 so I may do a partial fence for it

    Those GB cast receivers are tempting. Are you pleased with the quality? Royal Tiger had kits but sold out for $299. GPC Numrich has early furniture kits with buttstock w/o trapdoor for$40 & prong flash suppressor for $13. To get the discount shipping code (online sales only) call the order number and listen to the recording as it changes often. Best thing about the space age retro rifles is the weight.

    Looks good to me Bubba. Good job. One of these days maybe I'll get to build a retro A1.
