Any idea when you'll get some of those "Retro" lowers that look like the M16/M16A1 lowers?

Reenactors are dying to get them!

Put me down for two.

They've been out of stock forever, and now thier site says:
"We are sold out until we get the new forgings in and machined."

I have found other sources for Retro uppers so perhaps other Lowers are being made and sold to suppliers like NDS ? (Research/links/other boards are your friends):)

Aaron, NDS is working on them, but don't have a schedule for release yet.

What's the deal here... They had made a production run, then they ran out.

Now it appears they're starting over from scratch? I'm a bit lost.

Nah, they're making different runs of different upper/lowers.

The latest sample forging is of a 601 lower (no fence). to my knowledge, they're inspecting/testing it, and if all is well, they'll order up a production run of them.
