“It is always nice to be asked, unless of course you are being pointed towards the door. So when Rich [The Reptile House] approached me to do a little write-up on my Retro Armalites, I was flattered.

Truth be told, I like to play hard and fast meaning my equipment gets chucked about a lot. The wear marks are therefore all genuine and Tac’s moisture proofing gets challenged regularly when crossing the DorkingNam ‘rivers’.

– Prime M16A1 lower (as close to a proper AR-15 marked item I could get at the time and they are sublime)
– RS Reproduction upper, reengineered for PTW
– G&P slimmer accurate hand guards with heat deflectors
