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?

Hi Richard,

Did you do the conversion yourself?

Where did you get the three prong flash hider, I've tried to purchase one for an M16 that I have but unfortunately like you have found out looking for your Magazine bandoleer, no one will post out of the US.

Love the look of your rifle.
