I am building a Retro M16A1. I have the NDS lower and all lower parts plus the stock. Just need a nice Upper. Let me know if you know of a source.

+1. It'll look better than probably any used upper you'll find, and match the color of your lower as well. Not to mention, if there is a issue with it, you can send it back and NDS will take care of you.

Sarco used to carry them but I haven't seen any in their ads for a while.

Mebbe they will..."found these uppers lost in a box - on a shelf - in the back of a warehouse for years - and we're now offering them for sale...after we dust them off."

I love reading Sarco ads and would really enjoy poking around their warehouse sometime.

Did Dangerous Dave work there or am I thinking of The Olde Western Scrounger?
He was a piece of work. He about blew a gasket when I asked him about reloading berdan primed 6.5x55 swede brass.
That was many, many moons ago.

Machine Gun Dave is there,don't know if it's the same guy.And I try to deal with him only.I've gone in with trade items and he generally does not try to beat me up on prices.I have always come home with the item(s) I wanted and felt I was treated very fairly.. Yes I research current parts values before I go in so I know what I want to get for them.A couple of times I was surprised,I walked out with the item I wanted and cash in hand as well.

Has anybody actually received anything from Gunny's recently?
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 5:35:25 AM EST
Yes , I finally recieved my M16A1 upper after a month of placing my order. The upper reciever was refinished and the rear of the handle had a armory number stamped on it. The finish doesn't match that of the barrel, the upper reciever is of a grey color and the barrel is black, but that's ok with me. I took it to the range a couple of days ago to sight it in at 100 and 200 yards, it was right on the money with the first round and all shots thereafter. I must say that it hit what I was aiming at. I am happy with the upper I recieved.

SARCO has new A1 uppers, assembled and stripped, BUT they are C7 variety.

Auction Arms #9107907 Complete 604 uppers! I have gotten a couple from them already. Nice people.
