I am the proud owner of the original (I think it was 2001, wasn't it?) LEGP AR-15 #23.

Come 9/13, I think it will more than likely add a collapseable stock. Not sure about messing with the barrel, though. What do y'all think? I suppose it's not really that valueable / collectable so might as well make it more authentic, is my thinking.

I wouldn't say mess with. I'd say more like fix.

Bottom line it is only a gun.....that should be shot, often and made to be as comfortable and as tricked out as the owner wants.

You may want the barrel swap as well. I forget if they were chromelined back them and if they were 5.56 or .223 wylde chambered.

Yup, mine (#14) will be fixed.

The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you are already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function, without mercy, without compassion, without remorse.

2001 was the M4'gery RRA rifle.

2002 was the DPMS NM wanna-be

Go ahead and change it. I just sold my DPMS upper.

Neither rifle had a chromelined barrel. The RRA was a 16" with a wydle chamber, 4140 chromoly and a faux FS on the end. The DPMS was a 1:8 twist S/S bead blasted barrel.

I still have the spec sheets for both if anyone is interested, I can email them to you.

Got one of these as well - will the RRA "pre-ban six-position collapsible buttstock kit" be a simple drop-in replacement for the fixed post-ban stock?

Yes, it is.

You'll need a carbine wrench for the lock nut

It's easy to replace.

Take a look at how far the current one is screwed in (open up the gun and look inside)

Be careful when unscrewing the old one, the buffer retainer and spring will shoot 30 feet in the air and get lost

be careful of the spring for the safety selector, it can get lost or bent during reinstallation.
