Hello all,
I have been a AR retro building for around 2 years now. Before that I was on the AK side of the fence mostly Norinco's. I would find the ones that where caught in the BAN and would restore them back to their full evilness using 922r compliant parts. I have owned a couple SP1's back in the early ninety's but never kept them long would sell them to buy AK's. I think the main reason for not keeping them I had a M16 assigned to me at work. Then it all started around 2 years ago when I bought a shorten 20" barreled M16 upper, the upper was a 601. James Arnold got me headed that way, Then came John Thomas, John Brace and Jerrell Sharp to name a few. I have talked to a few more of you on here but mostly through Gun Broker. I have done a 601, 601 bayonet, GM Hydro, XM177 and a SP1 carbine. I will probably never be able to afford 601 furniture I kinda build things my way but I have fun doing it. Most of my post on this sight is practicing posting photos with that being said I will try to post some latter. I just received my GM retro upper and lower back form JT yesterday he did a outstanding simulated heavy wear on them.

You all take care
Craig

PS I shot my first M16 in basic training Aug Sept time frame 1975.

Welcome to the forum, try posting in the new Retro builder's meet and greet, post pictures, learn some history about this Sub Secton, etc.
