5 of 5 M16 A1 grade A kit November 6, 2019
Reviewer: William Alexander from Bartlesville, OK United States  
all the parts are there and authentic just as described.  I considered buying one of the built rifles but I wanted a 1-9 twist so I can adjust bullet weights. I wanted a Battle worn rifle  The smaller parts and gas tube are covered in some dirty grease but clean easily after a solvent bath.  I recommend this kit to any builder that wants an authentic looking Vietnam tribute rifle Update: build complete, I did a lot of barrel research on what would be the easiest.  There is green mountain barrels but you have to drill for gas block pins, there Brownells- a little high on price and I went with delton, correct site option, best price and ready to go.  I distressed my brand new lower with 600 grit and this built looks amazingly authentic m waiting for my head space gauges then ready to shoot.  Whole build is less than 800 and a one of a kind piece.  I wish I had enough money to buy another kit.....

5 of 5 Excellent Kit. August 25, 2019
Reviewer: Michael Stewart from Shinnston, WV United States  
I was very skeptical about ordering this kit. However I was pleasantly surprised at the kit I received.

Parts had minor wear from usage and stocks were in good condition. Front handguards had a couple minor cracks but no missing teeth.

I completed mine with a PSA lower, mil spec trigger group and Brownells retro barrel.

I plan to purchase another kit in a few months.

5 of 5 Nice May 7, 2019
Reviewer: Wayne from Texas  
The upper had a thin coating of black paint on it, a couple of minutes in thinner and it came off with most of the original dark grey finish still there. The hand guards were very good no cracks or missing teeth, same for the stock. Parts were much better than expected.

5 of 5 M16A1 Parts Kit February 20, 2019
Reviewer: Darrell G from Greenville SC  
I'd say it was okay.  I'm not disappointed that it was $599 because sadly that's just what they are.  I mean bread was 25 cents a loaf back in the day, right?

Shipping was immediate.  The parts were okay.  Nothing broken.  My handguard has a crack in it (30 + old parts kit, it is what it is).
