    Yes and he got it for a steal! [I was there when he picked it up.]

    Lucky bugger!

    Go forth and have a blast.

    I assume you got my Email about the other half of your deal?

    Very nice I carried the M-16A1,on duty in the military for several years,then they upgraded to the A2,that weapon will only go up in value as they do not make the A1 model anymore

    those two weapons epitomize the no frills, no gimmicks, get down to business weapons. Fine tools if you ask me.

    Nice AR! Just how much of a steal did you get it for? I wish I would have saved a little more and bought a nice AR instead of my Mini-14.

    I love my Mini-14, but there is something about an AR
    If you own a handgun and your state law allows it, please carry.

    $1250 with some older opitics that I doubt I'll use. If they still work I'll probable sell them. They may not seem like a deal to some in free America, but this is MA and the AWB is still in full effect here.

    Great looking rifle! I hope you'll really enjoy owning and using it.

    I'm probably the only goofus on here that actually prefers the old triangular hand guard.
