There are a few rebuilds out there by Century, but they aren't common, there are also Colt SP1s but they run $1500


Just about the only source for one is to build it and it's so much more fun that way.

I still haven't gotten the FSB pinned yet but other than that I'm finished. Turned out great, I used a DPMS A2 lower, refinished to correct color and I removed the DPMS logo and the FIRE/SAFE from the right side as per originals. As soon as I get the FSB done I'll have a range report.
As usual some residual oil so some shiny spots
Here ya go
