It is a few months old and has the A2 carry handle. Put 300 rounds through it without any problems. Wanting to build an M4-type .223 AR instead. For the trade, I prefer an od green handguard and the M4 upper must be complete with the b/bc/ch.
I have lots of positive feedback on gunbroker and auction arms (biggypitbulls). I also have an excellent trader rating on AK47.net.
This upper uses inexpensive Sten mags and works with an unmodified .223 AR lower and a Socom or KKF magblock.
