WOW X 100!!!! That is really COOL! Brings back memories of 1972 when Uncle Sam let me play with one of his.Much better circumstances now,though.CONGRATS! Feed it well and often(three square "bursts" a day at least!)

Beautiful gun, pics and video Jr! biggrin.gif I once owned a pre-ban Colt AR-15 that looked exactly the same, except for the burst marking and the stock was of the standard sporterized (non-movable) type. Thanks for sharing! blink.gif cool.gif

That's a nice addition to the collection, Jr., but is it from the same Colt lineage? Just kidding! Enjoy riding that horsey. LOL

Does NAC mean NOT ALL COLT? Perhaps Near Authentic Colt? Need A Condom? Not a Colt, Near a Colt, Nasty assed Colt?

I am wondering???

Beautiful Gun too bad it does not have the factory original white lettering. Congradulations. 16's are alot of fun. Now that I have my WH back I am going to try to buy my 16A1 back.
Enjoy it.

NICE GUN!

Hey, is that your back porch/deck your shooting off of? If it is, it must be convenient!

The good thing about the M16 is there are TONS of parts! Stock up now!

Norm

PS- NAC means Not About Colt. It's about full-auto fun! biggrin.gif

Now for accessorizing. Beta mag, 9mm upper, flattop 9mm upper with Eotech sights and muzzle break for subgun competition, SD 9mm upper, 9mm mags, Ciener .22 lr kit with bunches of mags, dedicated .22 lr upper, SD .22 lr upper, heavy buffers, 11.5" .223 upper, M4 upper, LMG upper, and a BPR MG34 upper with tripod, belts, etc.

AND last, but not yet seen or delivered to the masses, the elusive Shrike upper.

Neat gun. You can fork over a bankroll in accessories, but that is the neat thing about these guns.

Jr.--
I remember your neighbors once called in about your Browning's auto fire; I wondered if the Sheriff lets you shoot in peace now?

90% of the reason I bought one was because you can do exactly what you mentioned in your post and I intend to do exactly those things (no shrike for me, but most certainly the XMG)

Sgt..

No, I got rid of that thing and got this instead. I shoot it here and no complaints yet, but I dont do it a lot.

I have a silencer and a silenced 9mm upper coming in soon for this gun.

Take care

Jr

John Jr....don`t you love the pic with the sear...that`s what seperates the men from the boys... I can tell you first hand that XMG is a must...the accessories for the 34 are the coolest stuff you will ever collect...Marstar in Ca. and A.Arsonal have a lot of goodies at pretty good prices...BRP has a lot too...plus all the M16 goodies you can add....ah yes,a whole new world,good luck and good shooting. wink.gif

JJ,
The camo pants and the gloves were a nice touch. That way nobody could see you shoot the Colt and you wouldn't leave finger prints behind to betray your absolute fervent and evangelical belief that you would sooner carry a photo of Gus Hall in your wallet then own anything pony manufactured . Interesting that you would finance the Colt with the proceeds from a Browning. This personal about face rivals Madonna's latest reinvention.
