Well I made the trade and so far both parties are happy.
I hope I remain that way after y'all tell me some more about my first Colt AR-15.
Looks like 1980 production SP1. I'll be checking out the insides to see what original parts it may or not have but first impressions are that it is all there. I will be doing some research to see what they came with originally.
Should it have forward assist notches on the bolt carrier?
Snapped a few pics at the work bench so here she is.
Around here, these older rifles don't seen as hot as newer flat top carbines. Maybe there are some nice collectors items to be had?
