Been looking for years. No one has anything that isn’t custom or a carbine. Really desperate. Armslist is nothing but time wasters and really obvious ATF agents trying to get me to straw purchase.Can't believe you're still looking. Would think with the excess AR-15's on the market you'd be able to fill this.
I saw the day it was announced. They’re not for trade, and I’ve heard very bad things on Arfcom and Reddit.Well lucky you! Brownells heard your cries. They are now selling all the retro styles.
I’ve heard from people who have their hands on them that the metal quality is very hit or miss,Why would you say that? What’s your inside scoop? Who’s actually making them?
No desire at all to build, also don’t have the time or money. The shows here have NOTHING except for the occasional heavily worn upper for $2,500 or more & sets of the terrible quality Brownells reproduction furniture, last SP1 I saw was $3,000 heavily worn with a 10 round magazine welded inside the lower from California.You may have better luck building your own clone.
That’s the route I took, found a barreled XM16E1 upper at a show years ago and built a matching Nodak Spud lower.
