Are you looking for an M-16A1 Clone that seamlessly combines classic design with the latest technology? Look no further than Sanders Armory’s Retro M16A1 Clone!
The M-16 is a genuinely iconic firearm, boasting a storied history of use by militaries in over 80 countries. With over 8 million units fielded, this rifle has seen its fair share of action. Of all the M-16 variants, the M-16A1 is the most sought-after. Unfortunately, due to limited supply, prices for this rifle can easily top $30,000. This is where “Retro” or “reproduction” M16A1 Clones come in. While not all the original features can be incorporated due to today’s firearms laws and state restrictions, these clones still capture the iconic look and feel of the M-16A1. With advances in technology over the past 54 years, firearms components, materials, coatings, and barrel technology have only improved, making these reproductions even more robust and reliable.
This Sanders Armory M-16A1 5.56 NATO Clone UPPER ASSEMBLY features an untouched upper receiver design and a BCG that’s faithful to the original M16; this rifle also boasts a 20″ Cold Hammered Forged 5.56 NATO Barrel, Triangle Hand Guard, pinned A-frame front sight, three-prong flash hider, and rifle length gas system.
The 20″ Cold Hammered Forged 5.56 NATO Barrel with a Black Nitride finish features a rifle-length gas system and a lightweight government profile to keep the weight down and the rifle well-balanced. The barrel is US-made of the highest quality 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel, and the manufacturing and rifling process is Cold Hammer Forged, which strengthens and lengthens the barrel’s life. The Twist rate is 1:8, offering a much wider selection of today’s 223 Remington and 5.56 NATO ammunition weight and style offerings than the original 1:12.
