    Colt M16 A1

    Dear Friends,
    we have in Italyicon a good lot of Colt M16icon A1 in mint conditions.
    This is an example with pictures

    (please copy & paste the URL in your browser, direct URL not working cause of the fonts used)

    Here more pixs from another dealer.
    NUOVA JAGER - Fabbrica d'armi
    (please click over pixs to enlarge them)

    I think they are not coming from US Army, so from where do you think these M16 A1 could come ? Maybe Government usage ?
    Thank you.

    Very interesting... enjoy the opprotunity to buy a USGI M-16A1 for us here in the USAicon who can't do so. If you have a chance to buy one and shoot it, let us know how it goes.

    I finally bought the Colt M16A1.
    Here are some pictures including the details of the workaround needed to turn it from fullauto into semiauto in compliance with Italianicon guns law.

    Colt 606 upper




    A few years ago you could buy these Colt 606 uppers at gun shows, these are the early heavy barrel with the 1 in 12 twist, you might be able to find these in Italyicon too

    To the original poster, your customers are luckier than most to be able to buy guns marked M16A1. Many other countries have rules limiting or prohibiting ownership of guns that are or at one time were selective fire.
