I have a BNIB PSA dissipator if anyone is interested and ready to buy I will meet in OKC but I’m leaving town Thursday morning. Shoot me a PM interested and I will send pics, it’s sitting in the kitchen right now.
I have a mid length from PSA dissipator as well, but not selling it. Got it in a trade a year or so ago and it appears to be unfired with an A2 stock and SS barrel.
Forgot I had it until this thread came up. It needs shot!

Looking for a Retro kit, wall hanger. Doesn’t have to be a colt, seeing how it’s going to be a wall hanger. But I do want it to go bang. So the cheaper the better.

is the XM177 car15 of the vietnam era your goal? i think brownells sells a fake muzzle device that looks pretty close? the originals had ridges almost like baffles in them and in reality made the gun about the same length as a 723 . the longer barrel on the 723 and the bump improved the reliability quite a bit. on the early guns guy in the field would wrap emery cloth to a dowel and relieve the chambers some but better not get caught.... mostly the few car15 went to the LRRP's
