Hey guys, just got my Brownells M16a1 lower in and its super nice. However....the uppers are on BO with no dates for restock(kinda worried they may not carry them again). Any clue who may have one in stock? Ive been in contact with NODAK, and they wont be doing production again utill well after the new year. I literally have everything to put my XM177e2 together except the upper:( Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Keep checking the EE for an original. I'm not sure about Brownells. The retro barrels were supposed to be in Stock in July and they were over dew then. I emailed them a few days ago and now they said they have no idea when they will be in. I'm guessing it's going to be a while for the retro stuff.

Originals are available. The run about $200 to $225 + or - with rear sights, port door and forward assist included. Check Gunbroker and search "retro upper"

I won't have a problem going from the colt large pin to a non?

The upper should be a small pin too. Only sp1 uppers were large pin. Also, the sp1 is a slickside upper. The xm177e2 has a forward assist.

Damn, this whole time I've been thinking they were all large pins! Lol

If you get large hole Colt uppers like I did on my 602 and Sp1 Carbine clone, the offset bushing costs about $4. I lined them up and super-glued them into place.
