I've been out of the army for a long long time,dont recall if M16A1 had shell deflector,also if they had tear drop forward assist or the standard round forward assist in 1980?

No on the shell deflector

Yes on the tear drop

Thanks for the replies,just recently got a like new A1 upper, I've added a A1 stock with trap door to my lower.
It really does resemble the ones we used during my time in the army,but it has the shell deflector.
Yesterday,was doing some talking to a friend,he going to send me another upper,unlike the upper I recently got, it has a tear drop forward assist and no shell deflector.

So it looks like I'll have two A1s,guess now I'll have to add a slick side upper to my newly modest collection.

My other AR is M4gerys, these are my favorite grab & go carbines.
