Spike’s tactical has an A2 retro. Looks pretty interesting as this would’ve been close to what I was issued in Army basic training.

My A4 clone build (I have since added a Matech rear sight and moved the acog forward.)

It's on a Aero Precision A4 lower (with the burst 3rd selection engraving), everything else is mil-spec. Shoots pretty well, nice and smooth.



I also have a Colt HBAR 20" A2. Don't have a pic of it though.

This is the first one I ever built. It's been through some changes over the years, but now it's how I like it.

M-16 & M-16a1 use the triangular Vietnam era hand guard, The A2 was the start of the round hand guards on a rifle.

man i love this thing. so glad these uppers cae available to you.
was intersted in a military collector edition but the $$$$...
have a lot less into this and it has cage code on the upper parts rather than the fn or fnmi.
also the fn civvy uppers have the upper rear engraved.
anyways i like this finished rifle better i think.
i fondle it daily, havent got to the range yet....
acog should be here tuesday

That's an A2 style barrel, not an A2 upper. It has the detachable carry handle, but that makes it an A4, yes?

The only thing I don't like about those uppers is the FSB and barrel do not match. The barrel is that slick shiny nitride coating and the FSB is parkarized. It makes no difference other than just looks. If that doesn't bother you, then go for it. Its a good upper for the money.

Technically, yes. But I think he was thinking more along the lines of the A2 handguards.

Although, I might be wrong, but I think the A4 can be equipped with either A2 handguards or the KAC rail system. As long as it has the detachable carry handle?

Where did you get the handguard and buttstock?
