Poor picture but first clone I ever did was a XM177 done on an Oly lower with Colt upper and Colt 1:12 barrel chopped as short as possible for the fake Moderator to bring it up to 16". Need to drag it out and take a better picture and swap barrel at least to 1:9 or faster twist as will not shoot 62 grain bullets straight. 55's will hold up for 100 yards before begin the tumbling tumble weed deal but 62's are tumbling at 25 yards. It likes Black Hills 52 grain factory loads fairly well and why have left it alone. Did this in the late 1980's with help from a Vietnam Get that carried one in the field.
