    Default Question about Early M16A1 - A2 stocks

    I have a question.

    Have you ever noticed how some of the early rear stocks and hand guards on the M16A1 or M16A2 are either matt black or gloss black?

    What is the difference? Is it a contractor thing? Is it that one is earlier than the other? I have a mix set and was wondering which way I should go?

    Thanks for any response or information.

    Just a guess but maybe some are plastic and the shiny A1 ones are bakelite?
