Are you able to shoot 5.56 through an SP1? I've been on the fence on getting one since they are legal in my state since they're pre-ban

Yes, theyíre chambered for 5.56x45mm. The caliber marking, .223, is not the chambering marking.

Thanks. Agreed, prices arenít going down on these, but they can still be had for 2.5K or less (unless itís a 1960s production one), so they arenít going up rapidly either

Good grab. Someone wanted to make an AR as close as possible to an M16A1 without going full NFA.

Nice P32. I have a "Armalite" logo I picked up some 15 years ago for 600.00. Got it from a FFL dealer in Austin. He was closing shop and needed to sell of all his "stuff". I like it. Mine is dressed up as the ugly "assault" looking rifle. She is a safe queen.
