    Slater, I'd read most of that, perhaps in The Black Rifle. The A2 stock was my biggest gripe; it simply doesn't fit me. I suspect the Marine's concentration on marksmanship may have led to the A2 sight; we were never trained on it, and teaching it must have been a bear.
    The M4 barrel has no magic for me as well; I've a pencil-barreled Colt carbine that has a much nicer feel in the hands.

    Brownell's just put their M16A1 on sale, regular $1299, for $899.

    I just pulled the trigger on one a few minutes ago.

    I'd love to see the triangle handguard 16" on sale.
    Good for you, 'Vibe.

    I think at this point I have a "style."

    My first AR, still my main man, is a Bushie M16A2 clone from 20 years ago. Box stock, 20" govt profile barrel. It gets some looks at the range from the younger modded - M4 crowd, who have never seen an A2 except in pictures.

    I recently got a 6920 for a car gun. Box stock; I have no plans to change a thing.

    My Smith 15-22? Parts kit is on order to make it into a 6920 clone (tacticool.com).

    I guess I like vintage and stock guns.

    If it works, don't mess with it.

    This came in today. I'll say this for Windham - they make a damn pretty AR.

    Does your receiver have a slight violet hue in certain light?

    I tested it under warm white LED residential lighting, and the bright Texas sun. Neither gave off a violet hue. It is a uniform gray finish no matter which light was employed.

    Sometimes wishes come true. Found the 16" carbine upper at a gunshow today for $300. Put it on my 16A1 lower; looks cool as hell!
