Retro ARís, A2ís and A16A4ís.....letís see them!

So in another thread I posted that Iím on the fence, about what will be my next build, 20Ē rifle or a disapator. Anyways some members posted pictures of there rifles, so I thought, maybe others would like to share some pictures of theirs.
Iím still undecided about what my build will be, but it will definitely be a rifle or rifle gas system.
So letís see them, and give me more options, to make my decision even harder!

Mine, on a Nodak receiver + Colt barrel using a near-virgin GI kit that was imported a few years ago. Yeah, I've shot it since... surprisingly accurate. Really, really wish I'd gotten two (and I need to take new photos).

Love the triangular handguards. I learned pretty quick I'd burn my fingers on the gas tube if I touched them through the top vents.

These are nice. I splurged on a couple not quite vintage but late 80s/early 90s Colt HBARs a while back that I need to post.

Here is a retro look with a twist lol!
And once again it's the correct way on my phone. And upside down after I have rotated it in my phone several times??

The Corps is phasing out M16 A4s for the infantry (pretty much a done deal now), replacing them with M27s (HK-416). Once the Corps fields the M27s to everyone (it'll happen), the A4 will definitely be considered old school. For AR fanboys they already are.

I really wish I had just one more pre-ban lower.

I know! But let's face it, the A4 really is a retro at this point.
