I've been looking on EE. It seems like used USGI M16 B/BCs bring more money than a new AR B/BC. What causes this to be the case; are the used M16 B/BC of higher quality?

I would guess supply and demand. A little lower supply and a little higher demand then AR carriers.

CMT groups are typically about 5-10 dollars more for the M16 type. Not to bad in my opinion.

This I did not know, and I'm learning new stuff everyday. Since ATF says its OK to use an M16 BC in an AR, provided it doesn't make it go full auto, this may be the way to go to get a slightly heavier BC for very little money.

10-4

All of my latest builds have have CMT MP tested M16 BC groups. Bravo Company, Dennys GTS and G&R tactical all stock them.

Well, since you mentioned USGI, that narrows it down to probably Colt or FN (which both command a premium.)

Always nice to have the option of dropping my upper onto a registered lower...I also like the heavier weight, and I prefer the M16 carrier to the AR15 for political reasons. I hate being politically correct.

Good point, I didn't read that part of it, in that case, it is definately a supply issue.
