Nice. I can't tell by the pic, is it a Colt?

Re: Kickin it old school

Nope. I had been thinking about reliving my young adulthood for a while, and while at Camp Perry I walked into a vendor bldg. On the rack with heavy bbled railed uppers, sat a A1 upper with a new 1:9 bbl. I picked it up, put it down walked out, thought if I dont do it now I never will, went back in and bought the upper, lower parts kit, and stock then and there. The lower is a retro Nodak Spud new manufacture XDM16 lower, because it fits more in line with the duckfoot flashhider and the butt with no tool pocket.

First lower I ever built, have a bad feeling that it is like opening a bag of potato chips

Re: Kickin it old school

Pre A2, I agree with him.

They were OK out to 500, at least I never had a problem, but not a tack driver and with the 1:12 them little bullets would blow in the wind. Now there are NM A2's shooting 77gr bullets out to 1K. Of course my A2 weighs 10lb.

Commercial row was rough on the Black Ops fund this year. My old spotting scope took one truck ride to many, and I found the A1 upper.

Re: Kickin it old school

Thats pretty nice, I dig it. Is that bipod connected or is it the spring loaded one that just kind of clamps onto the barrel?

Now if only it had the giggle switch like an A1 should haha. When I was in the Army, I forget what school it was but they still had A1's as weapons so in our field exercises we carried and shot blanks out of A1's. No one shot theirs because they didn't want to clean them. I would take their mags and blow through them like crazy because it was so much fun...

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Re: Kickin it old school

The bipod is mil spec and was 13 bucks at Sarco, so I cracked the piggie bank went all the way.

No rock and roll on the sw though. I cant see going through the hassle, tax stamp, and a few thousand for a couple small peices of metal to spend more in ammo. The muzzle rose like a son of a gun on full auto anyway.
