Hi! It looks like an interesting rifle. Have you posted pics at the AR15 forum under “retro rifles”? I’d bet they’d like to see it too.

 

Is there any color variation to the furniture? I know the early M16s often had “molted” looking plastics- black with swirls of brown in them that gave a sort of marble look to them. From the pics, yours look semi gloss black.

 

Is your bolt carrier group silver?

Hey

 

sweet rifle, for the XM16 E1 you should have a non blacked bolt and the 1st butt type without the trap on the back  :love:
