The only parts that I would like to "match" are two DSA aluminum lowers. The bolt carriers already have RA numbers, as do the rest of the other lowers. In the extreme case that I ever need to sell the uppers, I'm going to leave those alone. Pretty easy to tell a DSA lower apart, even if it's been painted in baby shit and mustard, even without taking the rifle apart. I conduct myself honestly and forthrightly, but I care little about what the thieves and scammers may choose to do (which they're going to do anyway if the profits are right).
