    I took 7 weeks to get here, usual performance for a CFO in Québec.

    Came with 2 X mags 10 /5, oïl bottle, sling, targets, tools and a book. It's a beauty time capsule rifle.

    Non removable carry handle, 20 inch barrel and 1 12 ROT, this should be very good with 55 gr.

    Did you get this from Dlask?
    I got this one from Leigh:




    I just happened to have a correct bayonet for it. Perfect fit.


    I asked Leigh for suggestions on what to do with my Dlask 'Justin Case' lower, and he said "M16"?
    I had wanted one of these since I was a kid, but had complelty forgotten, or never thought it would be possible.
    He had a Colt upper sitting there, and so I said YES PLEASE!

    Leigh went to work, and sourced all the parts needed to build an authentic M16. It's as close as I'll ever get anyways. Within a week, it was done. I can't get over how light it is. It really shoulders well.
    I've ordered a correct VN era sling, and working on finding a Brownells repro waffle mag to complete it.

    Leigh has a few more uppers hanging around, and now that he's built this one, it will be much less work to build more. Why don't you contact them, if you're interested?

    I have the same one I built my M16a1 clone off of. Norinco has it's issues but they are great project guns.
