Hi, there is currently no description in your listing for your "Original Colt M16A1 parts kit", item #1576420. Can you tell me the overall condition of the metal parts? Are there any cracks or missing teeth on the furniture? Thanks!

  Turn back time and give your AR15 a classic Vietnam War Era look, or replace the parts of your existing M16A1. This original Colt Parts Kit is from the 1970s & 80s. Kit includes all parts except the barrel, the lower receiver, and the auto sear. Kits may also be missing some small parts and/or the delta ring assembly. Additionally, the kit features a classic teardrop style forward assist and triangular handguards (left & right). The upper receiver and bolt carrier group are both marked with a "C". The buttstock may have a cracked buttplate, and most parts show considerable finish wear. Used, good condition considering its age.
