I like the XM177E2. I actually modified the second Colt I ever owned to look more or less just like that, with a slip-over CAR/XM-177 flash hider.

I’d like a 602, if they can get the parts mil-spec. Current parts are incompatible with some vintage ones, and the modern polymer furniture doesn’t look or feel correct. Thicker and heavier.

Not at the top of my want list but these are pretty cool and one day I will own the 602 and the XM clone.

yes I shot them , with 62 grain bullets they were meh.
I rarely shoot 55 grain .223 anymore
I like the below much better

I’d like one, can’t find any in this state or NC. Other than some ******* in Columbia with a poorly built PSA clone who kept going on about how it’s a collectors item because he used Colt furniture on it.

I built a 601 clone 2 years ago and while the Brownells 601 looks pretty correct, the stocks look too light-green to me compared to real 601s. But I’m being nit-picky.

The 7.62 Dutch AR looks sweet! I’ve already contacted John Thomas (Retro Arms Works) to see if he can do 1955 “Hollywood” AR-10Bfront-site posts and beer-can flashiders.

Having owned an AR back then, I'm much happier with the modern versions.

Funny how some folks want what's been discontinued.

I’ll have to agree. I really like the M16A1 I first shot in Basic, but I LOVE my Knights Mod 2.
Kinda like comparing a sixties Corvette to a brand new one.
