    Century Arms International is producing an A1 platform AR.
    Not sure of a dealer that carries them.

    The Century is supposed to use a Colt upper (surplus) on a CMT lower.
    I handled one for a customer and it seemed to be a decent firearm, not outstanding but decent (for Century)

    That Sarco kit got me thinking,.......someone was making a slab-side lower receiver.
    Can not remember who it was,......very popular with Vietnam re-enactors

    Buy an Apex A1 kit or kit with barreled Upper & use Nodak Spud (NDS) A1 lower for the build

    You want an A1 upper? I bought one of the Century ones back in the day when they were jumping on the ban scare. It's an A1 with fixed handle and sights, shovel foot forward assist, muzzle brake, no bayonet lug (stupid CA laws), and has the original Colt BCG and everything. Bolt on a lower and it's good to go.
