so Ive got one of the ban era century c15 ar 15's basically a olympic arms reciever with a colt parts kit screwed to it.
its got the 20 inch barrel, triangle handguard, plastic stock etc. basically what you see in all the early vietnam movies. I guess the upper is a A2? with the fixed carry handle.
I tried using it on a trade before and once you say century you get a quick no thanks. So the thinking is... how about swapping the reciever to a dpms or other reciever so the dreaded"century " name disappears? would that make the rifle more tradeable?
The rifle is great, shoots anything you feed it, never had a issue with it. Ive also got a few century AK's and each one works, goes bang, and picked up a M1 garand with a century reciever. Read some bad, some good about them on the web, A guy I know has 4 M1's 1 of them is a century gun and he has absolutly no issues. I got it in trade so Im happy with it. jim
