    Just like mosin nagants used to be $50 and now they're through the roof. Stuff gets to be worth what the market is willing to pay.

    Retro or not, the 6520 is one on my most favorite AR platforms. Having used blasters with all the bells and whistles in my professional life for years, during my personal time at the range its fixed carrying handles and iron sights. Its alarming in the military how many cant even use irons any longer.

    glad I read through the whole thread. I was about to make this exact same comment.

    I recently purchased a fully assembled new A2 upper from Double Star. My plan is to build an A2 carbine using a new Colt 6720 barrel assembly and my last Colt Sporting Rifles lower. Too bad those lowers are no longer available from JSE.
