Brownells won’t be peddling poodle skirts or coonskin caps any time soon, but they’re hearkening back to the 1950s and Eugene Stoner’s most iconic design for the latest additions to their famously comprehensive product line-up. They’re now offering M16A1 furniture in three decorator colors to achieve the classic look you’ve been wanting your AR. Here’s their press release . . .
Retro rifle fans, rejoice! Brownells announces M16A1-style furniture in 3 different colors, allowing enthusiasts to complete authentic-looking replicas of classic early AR-15 variants.
Colors available include black, Air Force contract green, and brown for builds replicating early Eugene Stoner prototypes.
Available separately or in complete furniture sets, the early-pattern stocks, pistol grips and iconic triangular handguard sets are made with fully-modern materials, and are attractively priced compared to hard-to-find originals.
Handguards fit into triangular handguard caps. Stocks are based on the Type D pattern, without a trapdoor compartment, and fit onto A-1 length buffer tubes.
“Customers have a deep desire for nostalgia, and they wanted to be able to build their own version of an early AR-15 or M16A1,” said Brownells CEO Pete Brownell. “We’re proud to offer these classic-looking parts to help accomplish those builds.”
