    Still looking for these parts:

    (If anyone sees any of the chrome or TiN parts available anywhere, local or online please let me know, Thanks!)


    Chrome or TiN hammer
    Chrome or TiN selector

    Complete upper with barrel
    KNS Hooded duplex front sight

    I may order an upgraded Model 1 Sales complete kit and use some of the parts I have already collected and then sale or save the remaining parts.

    I will try to keep this updated as I get stuff just for kicks...

    I would avoid Model 1 stuff like the plague.

    Ditto. Front sight block cant is normal on AKs, but the only ARs I've ever seen suffer from it were from Model 1.

    Their bolts have been known to crack and fail also.

    I have built 3 guns with model 1 kits and never had a problem. All shoot great. Also built 2 with J&T kits and had great results.

    Just dropping in with an update on the AR parts gathering... Midway order placed tonight!!! They had some other stuff instock but others were out that were in the same category so I stopped ordering at $40 tonight. I am working some OT and hopefully my second job this week a little so maybe next week I can order more stuff.

    You ought to visit KNS personally. It's a couple of miles N. of Fredricksburg on Hwy 16. Nice folks to deal with.
