If you like it old school, those two beauties are made for you!

As much as we dig those modern AR-15 looks and possibilities to customize them the way you want to have it done, as much do we love the classics, the old school, the base from where it all started from.

Today, we have two builds for you from a good friend of ours here at AMNB Mr. Kross K. who’s known for his passion and attention to details when it comes down to build some reenactment kits and boomstick reproduction to swing some BB bullets around. (as always bud, thanks for sharing your builds with the AMNB community). Much appreciate!

XM117

Up for your viewing pleasure are a Colt M602 and XM177 build. 

Full Parts List as always below. Enjoy it!
