Well, then swap out the stock.

My preference is the a2 upper. It makes me feel like I might be starting to get old when I prefer the a2 iron sights as opposed to the magpul bolt on folding things that everyone seems to prefer now a days.

I tell you what though, all of my friends always have me zero their iron sighs for them because so many now a days never truly learned how to shoot with iron sights.

Red dots /sigh

Man, that one brings back some memories. Somehow managed to qualify 'Expert' in Basic at Ft. Sill and AIT at Ft. Benning with an M16A1 and then I didn't get another one after that.

The 'new' guys liked the A1's and the 'old' guys appreciated the improvements over the original M16 but, 9 out of 10 still would've preferred the M14 if given the choice. Now you just need an M203 to go under it!
