    Here goes what you get
    I am pretty impressed the parts look pretty good no excessive wear these must have been in storage somewhere



    CH marked upper with no deflector colt proofed J4 what time period does that put this in?


    Butt plate is cracked but I can fix that all the teeth on the triangle handguards are there, missing most of the pins and springs but I say this is a winner

    Must have been Air Force Inventory....Carried some, shot none. Issued once a year to the Civil Engineer Prime Beef Teams, who promptly left them in their bunks while they dug holes in the desert. I kid you not.

    don't look bad at all-- maybe CFS did find a nice batch somewhere--

    looks like a 1970s A1 and likely a colt --

    probably a USAF or national guard unit from days gone by.

    Man I certainly hope mine is as nice as that. Once I get it I would like to build it as original as possible. What is the chance of getting a period correct lower and barrel? Or at least one that looks the part.

    great link, my second pencil barrel is coming got a e-mail yesterday, this on will have the fsb mounted at the factory.

    as i said in the other thread these kits look hell of a lot better than the McKay and SG kits

    shame the website is now saying they are sold out
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    The tracking # says it is out for delivery. Woohoo I am getting excited. Now yall will have to school me on the proper parts for this one. From reading it seems that I need a 20 in barrel and a slab side lower correct? Nodak Spud has some correct lowers on his site but all are backordered.

    Well good news!
    The kit came in and it is in great shape. Not even any cracks in the stock.
    I also ordered a lower http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...parts-kit.html
    And a barrel http://shop.ar15hardware.com/20-M16A...20lwt556cm.htm
    So in a couple of weeks I might just have a ar. All total I will have a little over $700 in it. Now I need some ammo.

    The barrel came in. Looks really nice. Funny ars seem to be a lot easier to assemble than a ak. I saw on youtube how to check headspace but cant for the life of me figure how to change it if it was wrong. The riffle just slips together.

    Lower is probably still a couple of weeks out, they sent me a email saying they will ship in 5-7 days. Bummer I am ready to go shootin.
