I'm not set up to swap uppers, but need one swapped on semi-short notice. Any arfcommer in the Central Bucks area willing to swap out an AR upper for a 6-pack?

Or is there a local gunsmith who can do it? Trying to get this done ASAP.

Thanks!

Can't help but are you referring to just the receiver? If so you might want to mention what hand guard/rail/style barrel nut is on it if you don't have the wrench.

Just swapping an XM16E1 upper receiver to an M16 (604) receiver. I have the standard barrel nut wrench.

Beautiful piece - happy I could help you with it.  And if anyone has questions about how to do a retro build right, SGL_Shooter is THE man.  He's a walking encyclopedia.

That's what us retro guys do!

If you like that rifle you should visit the Retro Forum ( under the AR-15 heading). Lots of cool rifles and LOTS of good people.
