I'm in the process of updating the retro too. It might be another few days.

I ordered a commemorative one a couple of weeks ago. Not the real thing but has a POW/MIA inscription and Vietnam service emblem on it.

@GoesBang - "Still In Saigon"? The A1 retro is my pick, too. Grew up with Vietnam, Civil Rights and the Counter Culture. Just feels right.

Colt 601 when I'm done.

The A1 was the only thing available to Marines in the mid-70's.

A1 was the only thing we had in the Army in '86-90, as well. They brought in the A2 as I was leaving. Then 8 months later in '91 I was shooting an XM16E1 (Colt 603) in Leonard Wood. 1967 was the last year they were made. Go figure.
This is my Bushmaster XM16E2, with surplus triangles on it.

Hey, I was shooting an A1 with triangle handguards at Leonard Wood in '92.

The bayonet is made by BOC (Bauer Ordnance Company), one of five makers, providing 1.8 million of the 3 million issued to troops during the Vietnam conflict.
