    Ah, that explains it. I was searching for "waffle" and I guess Brownells search only looks at item name. Plus on my phone there is no ability to filter by manufacturer. Thanks!

    You may have seen all this but Brownell's has a -10A and a -10B. Guns are generally identical other than color of furniture. Also, the A has a fluted heavy barrel and 3-prong flash hider while the B has a lighter profile barrel and a birdcage hider.

    In addition to two complete rifles Brownell's is also selling parts. We can now buy uppers, lowers, a couple different barrels, etc.

    Using pics on the site below and Brownell's parts it should be possible to come up with a clone (or two) of rifles that have previously never been available.

    Have heard FSBs are sometimes canted, and furniture is flimsy - is this true?

    As stated above, not much market feedback so far...
    My Brownell M16A1 does not suffer from these flaws. Furniture is remarkably like some SP1 stuff I compared it to.

    The most interesting part of that, to me, is that B5 is making the N1/fiberlite stocks for Brownell's. Maybe that means we'll get the full spectrum of B5 colors in them, too....
    " 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. "

    I can agree with this 100%. While I’m not too impressed with the current type D stock reproduction scheme I think the grip and handguards are well-done. Not the same chop-gun fiberglass material used back in the 60(s) - 80(s) but the same or better in strength without being as prone to chipping and somewhat lighter too. I’m very satisfied overall. The current light lime-type green used for the current 601 furniture needs to be changed ASAP.
