    LGS has one.

    Seems to be an accurate repro from what I saw. But I'm not sure I'd pay almost double what a Brownell's retro goes for.
    " Political tags — such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    While I'd love the rollmarks, I'd need more info an who actually built what parts and how. Otherwise might as well go with Brownell's which is at least a known quantity.

    I can think of a lot guns I'd rather put $2300+ into.
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.

    An SP1 is much cheaper. Wish I could find one for partial trade down here.

    I would maybe drop 1800 on a Colt marked and endorsed XM-177E2 but $2500 GTFOH

    I would like to know more about Brownells making their XM-177 more accurate

    Brownells retros are not more accurate compared to the Colt offerings.

    Chris Bartocci and I do not agree on this.

    The Colt offering is worth it just for the lower alone. You can't get a more correct lower than the Colt offering.

    I took my Colt retros and rebuilt them with correct late 1960s vintage parts.

    I had an entire mint condition XM177E2 part set with real moderator awaiting just a project like this.

    Also had a mint condition 1968 M16A1 kit that I used to rebuild mine.

    Chris had good ideas at Colt but him and I don't agree on the retro authenticity project.
