    Post1911 very good deal on an a-1 kit

    Colt M16A1 Parts Kits HOLIDAY SPECIAL at APEX Gun Parts - Gunco.net

    this is about as good a deal on the m-16a1 kits as i have seen in a long , long time.

    no barrels thanks to the gooberment but still all colt GI stuff.

    you'll need a lower as well.

    i have been building a few with this fire control group after milling off the auto stuff and the triggers have been very good 5lb pull and very crisp. for a nearly all colt build this is tough to beat.

    Not to dog Apex I love those guys.. but Yeah I'd agree not such a great price.. unless your thinking Colt parts are more valuable as a collector or something.. once you add a barrel a disconector plus shipping, your back to $500 plus.. and you can buy a completely built and ready to go A1 top end for around 5 bills..with out having to install all the springs, pins, etc.. taper pins are little tricky for some people to drill. some other folks had the US barrel already done a while back.. not sure that's all that cool either as it's not a chrome line barrel.. I know there a $Hit pot of military barrels out there but you talking $100 min for a barrel.. The economy's crap the gun vendors are gonna have to bend over for a while.. if they want to move products.. B2B

    I was excited when I saw the price until I saw the missing parts... the other packages also included a mag, and this one said the stocks were cracked. I love Apex but gonna pass on this one.

    If I had some money to spend I'd get at least two of there kits but I'm taped out right now
    $350 is not to unreasonable even with the missing barrel & disconector unfortunately your paying for Colts name on the parts.

    if your building a retro with colt parts and it even has the correct delta kit!

    if i was looking to build a very serious replica with all the correct shit rather than some of the "me too" parts i would pick up a couple.

    course it would be better if it had the colt barrel--so thank you gooberment!--LOL!

    You have to also replace the FA parts, correct?

    what i have been doing is clipping the tail off the sear, grind off the rear spur off the hammer, i also put a dab of weld on the back of the trigger but i don't think that is absolutely a have to. you could just dob that up with a little JB weld .then i replace the safety with a regular AR 15 one.

    and they you got a semi only ar-15. only have to buy one part --the ar-15 safety.

    There's someone on Auction Arms selling new AR-15 Aero Precision lowers for $60 with $10 shipping.That would complete one of these cheap enough.
