View Full Version : Retro ar15 a1

I want to build a retro AR15 a1 Vietnam era. I found some places online to buy stuff but wasn't to sure which place to get parts for it. I want to make a close as I can to a real vintage m16.

Welcome to CalGuns.
You have some research to do, depending on what manufacturer they are quite different.

I believe nodak spud does retro receivers. Or at least they did. True retro builders buy actual colt stuff. Most buy after market lookalikes. I will build both rifle and carbine sometime but don't know if I will do a nodak with colt furniture or after market. FYI most colt lowers are listed on the AW ban so that's a no go for the most part

There are M16A1 kits out there, check Gunbroker. Then get a lower reciever from Nodak Spud. Winning!!
