Who has the most beat up or well worn AR15 on this board? Maybe something you pieced together on the cheap from the EE or gun shows? Maybe an old SP1 that you have had for years, and treated it like a tool...not a safe queen? I'd love to see pics of these workhorses or parts bin specials...

Not mine, and NOT the way I would treat an M16.

Very nice, mine will look like that one day.

That gun in the pic runs really well and it has 10's of thousands of rounds on it. I've put a few through it myself. Believe it or not, it started as an ASA ( american spirit arms ) ar15 receiver.

I couldn't believe my eyes... especially when when I saw the auto sear pin and the auto markings. Then upon closer inspection, I noticed the "Restricted Law Enforcement" stamping. Then I realized it was a cheap replaceable machinegun!!! At least there have been a number of officers who have contributed to its well used, possibly abused??? life!!!

Thanks, I'll do that...I was just hoping maybe some members had some beat up ARs they might want to share. I know they can't all be safe queens.

I requested photos like that awhile back. Only ones I saw were Israeli military & a couple LEO rifles. No civilian posted anything approaching a worn AR. I think just about everyone here has safe queens.

What got me thinking about this pic request was remembering all of those M16A2 kits that were sold a few years back (I believe thru Tapco). They were really cheap, and I know a lot of them were being refinished...but I bet some of them wound up on some old lowers and made up a cool beater AR. I think the most worn out M16 pics I have ever seen were some in SOF from the Phillipines. I believe they were our guns left in Vietnam that made their way to muslim rebels...talk about worn out! Some had no finish left on the lowers at all...

Hey Ricker, do you know about that picture?
It's used as an add for the LMT sight, but it is different than the production LMT.
It has more material in the front side, near the top.
Did they change designs or something?
Is it a prototype?
Or a knock-off?

That's probably from banging into gear. My reciever has lots of scratches on it from when I do transition drills and it grates against my surefire's textured side. It's a MG, but luckily a sear conversion ...

I think that's a regular detachable carry handle that somebody took and "Dremeled" off the sight portion.

Damn, you guys need to consider camo paint.

NOPE- It's not chopped. I forget who makes them like that, but it's not chopped. Chopped ones don't taper down in the front. they just end all nasty like my other handle that i chopped. Not that I did a bad job, but it just doesn't look as nice as his.


look at me! i'm stupid!! wrong BUIS

Not to Knock LMT, but their BUIS costs about $120, most of us with A3's probably have the carry handle already, why not chop it? Or just get a $90 new one and chop it yourself?
