Fulton Armory was selling slickside BCG's. Don't know about now. I see a few retro look uppers every now and again at a gun show, but they are always a darker color than the original. The Viet Nam era handguards were glossy; the retro look ones will be matte. Best bet is to get an upper and lower CNC'd, then anodize and color them together, so it won't look like a redneck build. That way you will get more if you decide to sell it later. Either that, or if you can find an upper, strip the anodizing off both of them and do it over again. You can try www.gunbroker.com
and see if you can find an original there. They will want premium bucks if you go that route.
