well I have to correct myself, as of two days ago the pencil barrel were available after I got my confirmation the kit was coming i got on to the site to order one and low and behold they were sold out on backorder,
I may part this out for my friend and I always good to have extra.s
first I want to see the condition of the kit i get
Here are some pics of the one I did. I had Nodak send it direct to Ident Marking in TX. I believe. It took them about 3 weeks and then they sent it to my FFL dealer. I think the engraving was around $110. I had them do the colt logo, US Property, AUTO, and if you look close, they engraved a circle to replicate the pin for the auto sear.

i got all mall ninja and had to free float that last 20"-lol!
THAT IS A SUPERB COLT REPO LOWER!
WOW! that looks nice. I have an A1 built on a standard lower and that makes me want to swap it out with one like yours......When the panic buying has died down. So Nodak handled the engraving and just set it to your ffl?
Thanks for the pics! I want just like that!
But now I don't even know if I'm getting the kit or not. The website says sold out. Maybe Sprat got the last one? Heh..Heh
My CC balance has been doing funny things last couple days...so maybe I'm still in the loop. Have to wait & see.
I have not got it yet, I m out of town so it will be a week or so
numrich had a few of the old Uppers Im still waiting to hear if they are going to get any more uppers in, however the price of the upper went from 85.00 to 185.00 in a few days,which dosnt make me to happy nione bur what are ya gonna do. wore comes to worse Ill get a few csatings upper and lower just to have.
Not quite, Identa Mark is one of the companies that Nodak uses, so I called them and told them to be expecting it. They work with Nodak all the time.

It is as close as I will ever get to "a true" Vietnam era weapon.
That is nice DucatiSS. Looks good.. I did not realize their was such a demand for those old "Matty Matels."
My God their are tons of them still in the Orient, left over from the war years.
To bad they wont let importers De-mill them and ship them here..
Our Govt. pretty much left everything behind when our Troops pulled out.
I never fired one on semi. Always flipped too that full auto switch and prayed.
Well I got my " Like new" kit from Sportsmans guide today.
What a dissapointment! This POS looks like it was dragged down the dirt road & put away wet. It's one of the most expensive kits I've ever bought.Especially without a barrel. First AR & I was hoping to go WOW this is cool. NOT.
Can the black plastic parts be re-juvenated somehow? Thet look like my FAL Rhody kits only without the paint. Scratched, dirty , white painted numbers on the stock.
Like new???? WTF???
So... That's my review.........
Hopefully I'll feel better the second time I look at it. Even the part I think is the upper is scratched all to hell. I don't mind worn finish but scratches suck.
I'll have to have Nodak scratch the hell out of the lower to match??? Heh...Heh
