I just picked this beut up at a local gun show( cross roads of the west). I picked it up at J&G sales display for $688 and some change. Now to drop the bomb, It is a Century arms rifle. I know I Know, what is this guy thinking A CAI rifle AHHHHHHH. Well i have been look at this rifle for a while now researching and look up first hand reviews. The consensus says it a pretty good rifle most just don't trust it because of the name stamp. Now i am not one to advise someone to go the CAI route with a new purchase but this thing is solid. It has colt upper guts with a m16 carrier, colt upper receiver, CMT lower and guts, i am pretty sure the hand guards and butt stock are original colt, it even came with a cleaning kit and sling labeled colt P/N 62249. the only thing i don't know about is the barrel. It is an A1 light barrel but there are no markings anywhere, checked under the hand guards and everything. I came with a decent 20 round Polymer mag as well. Now for an under $700 dollar A1 with everything described i am willing to make the gamble. I dont know, here are some pics. Tell me what you think.
