    Harrington & Richardson Retro AR's

    Curious to see how these eventually turn out. Believe they're owned by Palmetto nowadays?

    A lot of these will probably be NoDakSpud tooling with H&R rollmarks applied. Technically not owned by Palmetto, a parallel subsidiary under the same holding company. According to former NDS co-owner Harlan, Mike's expertise and the NDS tooling to build the "new" H&R brand and line right were the entire purpose in JJE's acquisition of NDS.

    Time will tell, but the way it sounded the intent was basically to relocate NDS and spool it up even more with better capitalization and a "legacy" trademark.

    Hope they can figure out how to do gray anodizing without a purple tint. Colt seemed to manage OK in the 1960's and "70's. But the older hippie crowd might like it

    Sounds crazy, but am not that much into AR’s, more of a classic steel and wood guy. In fact currently only have one AR.
    However being my first issue M16A1 was an H&R ( still remember the serial number 2216455) this does interest me

    For the love of GOD, please make a H&R rollmarked T-48 FAL.

    I'd also be interested in their retro M-16s so long as they aren't "goober spec" or the price of Colt retro rifles.

    Would it be wrong/crazy to ask for new M1 Garands...made to spec?
    The obedient always think of themselves as virtuous rather than the cowards they really are.

    I think those were already mentioned in Mike's thread over at Rimfire Central, but don't hold me to that since my memory is apparently Swiss cheese these days.

    An M1 Garand with all forged and milled parts would be rather pricey. Probably around $2500 or more.

    Probably twice that based upon LRB M14 receivers.
