    Not entirely true.

    For the longest time the only place to get AR parts was from Colt's or surplus military parts, both I would say are "true mil-spec". Only in the last 14 years has this changed.

    I only began the deep dive into the minutia a few years ago and I don't have an engineering background. Just an interest for the details and a few reference books. I just recently got Black Rifle by Blake Stevens!

    Weren't the early Colt AR 15's large pin lowers with semi auto carriers?

    No.

    Those were short lived products from around 1991 to 2005.

    This is the true rabbit hole.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand
