This is a Colt's M16A1 upper on a Colt's M6601 lower with a A1 buttstock assy, and grip.  Upper, charging handle, lower, and delta ring were coated with Norrell's to match:

Beautiful.  That classic look is appealing.

Thanks, it is a nice bit of nostalgia for me.

I did the same thing with a Bushy lower,BUT I went and put the no trap door stock and the 3 prong suppressor,yours looks better,though,I'll have to get the lower and upper to match.

ARGH, sheesh you people kill me, everytime I go on AR15 I see another rifle I can't live without... looks like I'll be kicking off my own A1 project in a few weeks.  Thanks alot!

I went and built the same rifle. CDNN M16A1 upper and A1 stock. I got the rest and ..... I have a replica of the rifle I once carried....My favorite out of all M16 series rifles.. WD

Dude, that's sweet!! I thought the A1's didn't have the raised mag fence though?

Yep, 1/12.  The Norrell's I used on this one is a special order custom color, Semi-Gloss Grayish Black Moly.  Details on the color here:

I suppose the m16a1 look is getting more popular? I think everyone likes it.

That is one sweet rifle.
+1 on the 1/12 twist?
Does the A1 20" come in any other twist rate?

I just noticed that you answered the twist rate Q.
My bad. Happy New Year's.
Link Posted: 12/31/2004 3:49:45 PM EDT
Yes, there is such a thing as a Colt's A1 profile barrel in 1/7.  Not real common though.

Thanks Lumpy.

So, does anybody know where I can get a M16 mount for my AN/PVS-2?

Link Posted: 12/31/2004 4:09:43 PM EDT
Many M16A1's did have a raised mag fence.

Very Nice rifle Ekie!!!

I missed that question, if there were any A1's without the mag fence, there sure were not very many of em.  Only ones I ever saw were rebuilt Colt's XM16E1's.

This is my Norel's Molyresin refinish of a Century CIA-15 rifle I did last weekend.  I also put an A2 flash suppresor on it when I removed the muzzle brake on Sept 14th and it has no bayonet lug.  I also had to replace the front swivel as it was always lacking the noise suppresive coating.  So it is not an attempt as a pure A1 but just a lighweight functional rifle.  The magazine is a refinished grey parkerized british steel magazine now with a green follower and a red extra strength spring from SAW.

The recievers are grey-black and all the steel parts are SOCOM Black.



Glad to hear that you got that done.  That Norrell's is the stuff huh?  Looks good, and am using a A2 lower on mine too.

I did it with  a Colt M16A1 upper and a RRA lower. The A2 features on the lower drove me crazy. What can I say? I wanted an A1 clone but couldn't live with the lie. I sold the upper and bought a Bushy M4 upper. Stangely, a phoney Rockmaster M4gery doesn't bother me a bit.

I let the barel soak in denatured EtOH in a wallpapar trough for a couple of days and washed everything else in soapy hot water.



I strip mine down and clean with acetone, and bake any parts that might "bleed" before spraying.

You almost deliberately have to fuck it up.  It is the most foolproof stuff I have ever used.  I had to deliberately make it run when I was praticing application.



Yep, Norrell's is the best.  Now don't make it sound to easy, then everyone will be doing it.

HEY
For those of you looking for "correct" no reinforcment A1 lowers, I am looking to trade two PWAs (A1) lowers for LMT lowers.

Back to your regular programing thread and sorry for the slight thread hijacking.

Nice rigs by the way and Ekie I will look around for a PVS 2 mount for you

No, that's cool, have thought about getting a early A1 lower for mine.  I have a hard time going with non Colt's though, personal thing.

Here is a shot of some AN-PVS-2's:

No worries. I was refering to Hickboy's question.

What are the differences between the A1 and A2 lowers?  I wouldnt mind doing my own nostalgia rifle build.  Is there a site that lists the characteristics of an A0,  and A1 rifle?

Compared to the A1 receiver, the A2 is beefed up around the receiver extension tube, and the front pivot pin.  Web site, not that I am aware of.
