    I saw this AR15 awhile ago in a gun shop but then has been sold. All I know it was an Olympic Arms lower (unknown if same upper) Magpul Stock. Price tag said $650. Im trying to be rebuild this rifle. Could anyone recognize the sights or anything such as the upper or rail system :confused:

    There is really no way of telling. Most uppers are not marked or stamped. Is there anything stamped on the barrel?

    it was a short range scope. the sights could switch from red to green or standard.

    Pretty low end build - the handguard is a 2-piece UTG drop in, which means no free-float. I'd rather have a Magpul MOE handguard if not free-floating. The upper has a riser on it, which is not ideal, with maybe a leapers 1-4x on it? Something cheap. The MOE buttstock is good for cheap, and the vertical forend grip looks like a Magpul. The grip looks like a standard A2. I wouldn't pay $650 for it.

    Especially knowing the price, it's just loaded up with UTG Airsoft junk.
    Heavy junk.

    Spend $1200+ and build yourself a nice feeling and performing rifle, that will also look cool.
