Default WTB: USAF Colt 604 / M16 parts

Been wanting to do a retro AR for a while, and decided to give a nod to my service branch by doing a 60s USAF M16 (Colt 604). I already have most of the original furniture, and was planning on basing this build on the Brownells retro upper/lower receiver set since the price seems fair enough, but figured I'd see if anyone here can lend a hand before going to the big companies.

What I'm looking for:
- Partial fence lower (gray finish)
- 20" parked barrel assembly, pencil profile (1/12 twist preferred but not necessary), flat slip ring, A1 front sight post, 3-prong or birdcage flash hider
- A1 rear sight kit, gray ejection port cover assembly and charging handle (unless you have an upper that comes with them)
- GI lower parts kit (late style is fine, going for looks, not absolute accuracy)
- GI 20 round mags (low priority, but will eventually be looking for 8 or so)

Used/beat up/scuffed/etc is absolutely fine, so long as things are safe and functional. I'm trying to build a battle rifle, not a safe queen, and while I'm trying to get as visually accurate as possible, price is definitely a consideration.

I'm especially interested if you have a barreled upper you're willing to part with. My recent move means I don't have the same workshop space available that I used to, and not having to put on a barrel and/or gas assembly would be massively helpful.

Drop a reply or PM if you can help out!
