I know where you probably can pick up "some" of your desired items. But to me . . . it is a "all or nothing" thing. (the completed build)
Come over one day and I will take you over there.There WILL be a "finders fee".
Great project James. If completed in <10years you will have a great gun. But to get it as period accurate as possible flying under the ATF paperwork guidelines you should just "bite the bullet" and buy (IF STILL AVAILABLE). Next time over I will show you my gun . . . for ten bucks and a signed and duly notorized paper from your wife. --- SAWMAN

So your building a older style AR/M16 style gun ?? Not a "Commando" style carbine,right ?? In my limited expierance,IMO,about 20% of the parts you will need will be fairly hard to find. Especially in the correct color.
There are people here that have quite a bit of expierance doing just this ( not me). --- SAWMAN

Centerfire Systems has original M16A1 slings for only $1.99 on the home page. I think today only

Checked it out, even better till you read the description. Bastards.

"May or may not be included " I wonder if they'll do a "hand select, best out of ten" for you?

This "kit" includes some parts that you can get at 1/10the price . . . AND . . . most likely some that have been judiciously faked.
PASS !! --- SAWMAN
