    Brownells Retro Blems

    I was passing by Brownells retail shop this last week and noticed about 20 mismatched-color Retro clones on their sales rack. A few of the XBRN16E1 (partial fence, three prong) and more of the BRN-16A1 (full fence, bird cage) IIRC.

    First picture gets to the adonizing mismatch, which is very pronounced. I might have bit at $899, but these blems do not look sufficiently like my recollection of the actual rifles. None of the 601s or XM as blems, which would have been more interesting. From what I saw in my visual inspection, no other build issues -looked solid function-wise, save the plastic of the triangle handguards.

    at that price it might be cheaper than it would be to build
