Just been browsing the Retro section & as a result  have spent the last 20min stripping off the fore grip/torch,red dot etc & polishing up my 20 rnd mags,sooooooo much nicer handling/looking, just pissed at myself for falling foul of the Tacticool monster.IF IT AINT BROKE..............

Amen, brother. I carry an M4A1 with all the doodads on the job and I prefer the old SP1 carbine that I got issued before we bought the new guns.

I think the M16A1 with round handguards has one of the nicest/balanced feel of any rifle I've handled.  I think I'm even starting to prefer my optics mounted on top the A1 carry handle.  I don't know how it happened, but over the last 3 months, I've ended-up with 5 Retro's in the safe.

+1 on the Round Handguards

I cut my teeth on an A1 in Basic Training and thru my short stint in the Army
but replacing the Triangular Hanguards with the roundstyle improves the feel IMHO YMMV

GUU-5/P clone....."plain vanilla". Can't get any simpler than that!  5.5lbs empty.

It's an Essential Arms lower, went together well...TD pin holes are a little snug but other than that no problems.

Need to take a new pic with my Armson OEG mounted....real vintage look to it!  :D
