M21 build

Post by LarryHoosier »

I started this build with a 1980 M1A from Springfield Armory Genesco. I discovered after purchasing this weapon that it had never been through a 1987 recall to address a bolt issue. I sent back in 2016 to SAI and while they had it I had a NM barrel installed.

The ART II scope is a unit produced by Ironsight, inc. Tulsa, OK with NOS Leatherwood parts as is the mount.

The fake selector switch and connector bar came from Fulton Armory and I found the M14 stock on ebay.

The last Steel warrior. Nice to see an ART 2 scope on there. I've never seen one in person.

Very nice rifle. A member of my club just sold his ART2 scope and got a small fortune for it.
