Would a used M16 upper work on a 15? This would be legal right?

Unless you have one of those Colt lowers that uses a none milspec pivot pin, yes a M16 upper would work. In fact there's no difference between an M16 upper and a AR15 upper.

And yes it would be legal, state/local laws apply. But since you're in TX you're OK.

awesome...now i just need to find where i could get older parts with the anodizing worn off...Dace has got me all excited on the Build It forum with his master refinishing project. I'd probably save a lot of money and have fun redoing a whole gun.

What's "worn" about that rifle's finish? It's just starting to look like its broken in properly

That looks like the M16A2's we issed to the sheeple for SAFS at Camp Perry this year.

What they said. Here's my Colt M16A2 upper on a Colt MT HBAR lower (both small pivot pins).

It's a M16A2 clone with all Colt parts except for the Les Baer A1 type grip.
