Imported by CAI/Imbel Receiver

Good Evening Gents,

I have got a couple questions on the link below. From what I can tell in the pictures it looks to be an Inch variant rifle. I have read the horror stories of CAI rifles but have also heard that the Imported ones with Imbel receivers are usually good to go. Should I make a move on this rifle or should I hold on and wait for a better rifle? Any tips would help!

Not a bad deal. It has IMBEL made receiver. Youíll need to replace handguards, flash hider and remove bipod, to made it L1A1 correct and hope the threads on the muzzle was correctly done (right hand twist) so you can use L1A1 FH.

I recommend an L1A1 currently in the MP. Hereís the link

This rifle comes with 18 mags, worth around $500 to $600 which you turn around and sell and end up paying almost the same as one listed on GB. Rifle has desireable Buena Park upper receiver which has the lightening cut that matches lower and rifle was built in correct L1A1 configuration.

For another $200-300 you could have what youíre looking for and not need to do anything other than shoot you it. Youíll have more than that($1200+) in fixing the one in your link.

A project starts a lot lower than the cost of that auction. Keep a watch on the MP and youíll find what youíre looking for.

Here are a couple of nice ones:
