I have for sale a Colt M16A1 complete upper and other parts which I am selling as a "parts kit". I don't want to part this stuff out as I'm kind of looking to help out someone who can't find a parts kit.
Anyway, here are the details of what I have, pics to post below.
Colt M16A1 barreled upper:
Upper is a no forge code, "C" "VP" proof marks. Barrel is marked "MP" between the FSB legs and "C" marked one inch back from muzzle. Birdcage flash hider. No forge flash on front sight base. The wind up and the pitch is that this upper is a Colt 1968 chrome chamber only, no flash FSB, that is period correct for a 3 prong flash hider. Condition is never fired by me in 98% condition.
Included with the upper is a Colt charging handle.
Bolt carrier group:
The bolt and bolt carrier are original Colt SP1 of 1972 vintage. New condition. "C" marked carrier, "MPC" marked bolt.
Furniture is military Colt in absolutely 100% condition.
Buffer tube/ Components
Buffer is military Colt, Colt recoil spring, Colt period-correct "Brandywine" buffer.
In short, This is a 1968-era M16A1 complete parts kit in absolutely pristine condition that just needs an NDS16A1 lower. No parts kit on the market (if you could find one) is better than this. As stated, the upper is definitely period correct for a 3 prong flash hider. All you need is a $60 DPMS lower parts kit and a $150 NDS lower and you have a MINT Retro Black Rifle for under $800
This was to be my "Tet Offensive" era M16 build, but I must sell to fund other priorities. $575 shipped USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. This is a really nice deal considering you're getting an unmolested genuine Colt 1:12 barrel that is original to the upper, not some mystery barrel that needs to be parkerized and has the wrong twist rate. First "Ill take it" followed by an email gets it.
You can find me on Gunbroker as username jelildude (same as here) and on Ebay as froggiemama.
