Wow, you're right. Seems not that long ago everyone was selling the M16A1 kits-Cope's, Sarco, etc. Now they don't have them in stock anymore.

Have fun, but don't buy all the kits. I want one. Oh ya, beware of full auto FCG, buy a lower parts kit.

My pleasure, post a thread when its built! The price at atlantic firearms is pretty good, curious to see what kind of shape they are in. It would be sweet to leave the original finish and get one of those retro lowers with a "worn" finish.
