I had the opportunity to finally shoot my rifle somewhere else beside the range and had a lot of fun. I was on a trip back from my grandmas house where she let me have her old .22 bolt action! my dad used to be "against guns" and as you can see no anymore lol.

I dig the the video (effect and content), rifle, and the underground. Most folks don't like underground, just always been that way, specially here, might be better to just use the instrumental versions next time.

BTW, I have a Rat Worx Reproduction Duckbill flash hider (http://www.ratworxusa.com/pagDetail.aspx?SKU=MA-500), PM me if you're interested.

Nice! Always glad to see a retro and I really want to build one for my father-in-law b/c it's what he carried in Vietnam. He has a M1A, but no ARs.

How much did the build cost you?

And I love the tunes, reminds me of old Digable Planets.

Good for you turning your Dad from an "anti" to a "pro". Nice rifle.

I don't mind the music either.

Thanks for the offer! But the XM16E1 used the later version of the 3 prong as well as an A1 birdcage. What I really need to do is swap out my a1 stock for a type D.

Thanks! My dream was always to own a retro. Its actually my first AR and my first firearm at that. You should get an upper and lower from nodakspud and build it off that, because I can't seem to find anymore colt m16A1 kits out there.

Mine cost about $900 -$1000 but that's including everything.
