Same here. It’s on the short list of future acquisitions.


#10

Brownells retro line is something to behold!


#11

I love the originals.


#12

I do. How could I not? They’ve gotten a bit pricey I see. Keep mine on:
Web belt with canteen and GI .45/w holster + 2 mag pouch 3/30 rnd AR mags in GI pouch make a nice SHTF strap and go.

Not enough wood except @CloverTac mod for furniture. These new ones are pretty nice, the real retros not so much.:thinking:


#14

Have to go to the porn thread for wood


#15

That makes for a Grr-arand time, or maybe not M16 but M1-A?


#16

IDK, FAL for sure


#17

Of course one could swing the other way in the political spectrum and try SK-AK stuff.:sweat_smile:

As far as the thread goes. I only use the USGI 20rd mags. Its what I carried, and am used to.
The 30s do not reload as fast. I gave those to the wife, daughter and grand daughter.

I have all of Stoner’s 5.56mm retro children.

Outstanding! May I be your friend?
