Ok all I'm sponsoring a RETRO M16/AR15 and CAR15/Shorty pic contest.

There will be 2 categories:

1. Regular 20" AR15/M16
2. CAR-15/Shorty

The pic will include your rifle, in a retro setting( Ideas....steel pot, ammo cans, sand bags, leaning against a UH-1H or laying on the edge of a rice patty... etc..etc.....).

Also they must be in black and white for that real retro look.

I just want your rifle and equipment, do not include yourself in the photo.

The prize for the winner in each category in a Colt Chrome 601/602 bolt (you choose p or MP marked).



DOCMIKE Will be the judge, so no emails telling me how good I look

It will last until 30 July 07, so everyone has time to make some awesome photos.

Good luck

I guess this is what I get for winning the last photo contest....just kidding. FREEFALLE7 and I both liked the idea of the continuing the photo contests so we decided to work together on this one. May I also add that we'd like to see "AR15.com" or "Retro" discreetly written on a piece of paper and visible in the photo just so we know that it isn't a "real deal" vintage photo. I know there are quite a few of us with nice military equipment collections, let's see some of them.

I'll play along here's my entry

What's with the black and white photo only being retro? There are a lot of color photos from the Vietnam era out there. Hard to see ERDL or Tiger Stripe clothing or original green furniture in B&W.

I'll post something tomorrow when my real 601 upper gets here

ETA: And maybe if I'm REALLY lucky, I'll be able to post some pics of my XM177E2 too. ATF cashed my check a few days ago.

No problem. Family first!

Awesome. I'll be bringing my XM177E2. I'm on the lookout for an M16 BCG right now. Of course it'll be on a black A2 lower But I'll put the A1 grip and 2 pos stock on Nothing you havent seen, though. And BTW, I think I'm gonna pass on that kit because I wanna get that upper from you this fall and I dunno if I could if I got that kit.

My entry on the 20" rifle section. Made it faded and B&W with IrfanView And added in the Chinese SKS and Hungarian AMD63 w/ Tula bakelite mag in there just for kicks



No match for a pic like uxb's but eh, thought I'd participate anyway

ETA: Got it that time. Imageshack was resizing it to 640x480 when I was trying to get it to resize to 1024x768 so I had to use Photobucket.
Link Posted: 7/16/2007 11:15:02 AM EDT
Oh, I need one of those bolts. Will get my stuff together later on and get some pics in.

What will the photos be judged on? Photo quality? Content? Theme?

Yep. But, I think it will be weighted toward theme.

I'll be the judge of that. (I always wanted to say that! )
Really, I wouldn't call it dorky at all, I'd call it creative and artsy........ just the kind of thing that makes this kind of photo contest fun. Let's keep 'em coming.

Villafuego - that mag in the 2nd pic is awesome. That's one of the rare experimental mags right? I can't remember if they were 40 or 50 rndrs. Can't imagine what you paid for it. Those waffle mags w/carrier aren't too bad either!

Not to steal his post or anything, but they were 50 rounds and he got it on Ebay with a few other mags for around (I believe) $100.

Yes, I hate him too. Especially for those waffle mags
