    They "outsourced" to a very good company but way overpriced when you can get a Brownell's for less than 1K.

    I do not care to buy one of them as I prefer to build my own.

    I think it is a great rifle. Comparing it with an SP1 that I have I actually consider it a better rifle as far as fit and finish are considered.

    I have some detailed photos and comments on my website here: https://thecoltar15resource.com/colt...issue-crm16a1/

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    I looked at the website. Very cool.

    And I agree about the handguards. My Brownell M16A1 has handguards that look identical to a pair of new in wrap SP1 ones I have, from the outside, but appear to be made of better less brittle stuff. I was going to replace the Brownell ones with the NOS Colt ones, but now I'm not going to bother.

    Seems as though both rifles go a very long way to replicate the original. So cool.

    I really wish they were a bit cheaper. I would buy one without thought at $1500. I bought the Colt XM177E2 and I love it. I wish I could get the M16A1, but I can't justify it.
