AR15 Advice

Been enticed to buy a older used Armalite M15A1 16" - anything I should “know” about it?
Thinking of swapping the collasping stock with a M16 / C7 solid stock…
pictures to follow.

a factory build should have an eagle printed on the front, not sides of the receiver, lots were home built and wont have that eagle

Should be a rock solid AR if it wasn’t abused or used up.

The scope is garbage - but I was going to replace it with the retro scope from Brownells

other than the blemish (almost looks like it had been stepped on while on gravel it is tight no wobbles just have to take it to the range when I pick it up.

And my mistake - it is an M15A2 - should have realised that with the rear sight.
