Looking at my first retro build.
I have my parts list ready to go but cannot find the upper I would like.
I like the look of the A1 receiver with the tear drop forward assist but without the shell deflector. I don't know what it's called. All I can find is the A1 without the forward assist.
I think it's called a slick slide?
I'm learning that building a retro is not so much about building a rifle but learning about the amazing history of this weapon.
Thanks for any help.
No one is making a new A1 upper receiver at the moment.
So you will have to find a good used one.
Look on the EE here, or on a auction site such as Gun Broker
Check the EE or gunbroker. You can usually find used ones. I don't know of any new manufacture.
