I'm looking to start a Retro build and want to know where the best places to find AR-15/M16A1 parts for a reasonable price, I don't want the M16A1 upper from OOW, is Sarcoinc.com a good place to deal with, let me know of other places, and I'm always checking the EE for parts. Thanks

Thanks mike_nds I belive I'll buy some stuff from Sarco.
Is the A1 parts kit (AR15/M16 Parts Kit, minus lower receiver (Included are stocks, G.I. handguards, new A-1 barrel, A2 type upper receivers, and all internal parts) a good buy?

Note that the 'A1 parts kit' has an A2 upper, so no, I wouldn't go that route if your goal is to build a true A1. Sarco seems to be a crapshoot as far as quality goes - some people get great parts, others get crap - pretty hard to blame Sarco - we're talking 45 year old surplus parts for the most part, and they ship a lot of stuff. I think their replacement barrel assys look like a good deal.
