For sale are original (NOT a reproduction) Colt Type E M16A1 stocks that came off of milspec U.S. Army Vietnam Era A1 rifles. These stocks are in Good Condition, which is as follows:
• Stock bodies do not have any major cracks or bulges — imperfections, dents and surface wear MAY be present. (Note: Any hairline cracks present are usually surface cracks or fine cracks; these are fully inspected and filled in properly to maintain structural integrity. In most cases, they will barely be noticeable).
•Includes all original hardware (sling loop, bottom screw, trapdoor, buttplate and top screw). This Hardware is in good completely functional condition. Trapdoor is aluminum/steel and will be in good condition. NOTE: Trapdoors will come in all shades of grey and wear — structurally they will be similar to the one pictured, but colors/finish will vary (may have small dings and such but will look great). These original aluminum bodied trapdoors with steel plungers/hinges are getting extremely difficult to source and are superior to the polymer ones in current production.
- Stock may or may not have left over paint, stickers and/or tape from service.
- Surface/finish of stock will indicate moderate use — think scratches, wear marks, dings etc. Some stocks will have “striation patterns” of hairline cracks or small pits in the stock. This is from the early fiberglass mixture production and is perfectly normal for some stocks that are old.
- Buttplates may have tiny hairline cracks that will be repaired or filled in. Will be 100% functional.
- Slingloop will be New Old Stock and Bottom screw will be in good Service grade condition.
- Top screw (with drain hole) is in excellent condition

Just add a buffer tube, buffer and spring and you’re good to go. You will receive all items that are pictured.
