Stupid question....

If I have an Olympic lower, will a Bushmaster or Colt upper work on it? Or are there glaring differences that I am unaware of?

Early model Colts have a larger front pivot pin, as long as you avoid them you'll have no problems mating your lower (which has small pivot pin) to any brand of upper.

Here's a good site on this subject: www.biggerhammer.net/ar15/uppers/

Thanks Mike,

I guess my greeness is showing through.

Won't be long before my BM Varminter is home w/ me. Just a little more I need to save up.

I already have a stockpile of American Eagle (pretty sure that's what it is) .223 and six 30 rd mags that a friend gave me years ago. He was fresh out of the Special Forces...not sure how he came to keep them (along with a few manuals) but he gave it all to me.
