That should reduce weight a bit more, improve the rear sight over the stamped version and the stocks could be made camo green or whatever color one needed.

Use an improved Johnson round with modern powders (something designed by Hornady) to closely match the performance of a 5.56MM round (or 6.5MM for that matter) and you'd have something worth toting a long ways. Throw in CNC machinery and Criterion barrels quality level and it'd be accurate.
Or just build an AR for much cheaper and with no additional design work or investment...
