Air gun Trigger Line Machine gun Gun barrel

This is the first AR-15 ever made, the XAR-1501. It is pictured here in 1957. I would like to one day clone this rifle but i wanted to know which front sight this is. Unfortunately this is the only picture with the sight mounted, as the rest of the modern day pictures show that the front sight has since been lost. Thanks all.

Brownell was selling a pretty good match with funky carry handle charge handle thing
Oh I am aware. If you swung over to ARFCOM, you’ll see why those rifles don’t cut it for the Retro Hardcore (folks like me).

They marketed that rifle as a clone of SN 000001, which simply isn’t even close to the truth.

Not sure but it makes me want to build one of the Brownells Retro AR-15s or AR-10s.
