Original parts will be kinda hard to find, yeah. I don't think you'll have a major problem finding some though. Last week I actually received a magazine for a company that was selling complete parts kits for m16a1s, minus the receiver. Used kits came directly from military surplus rifles and included most everything you need to return it to factory spec.
The real problem is locating the correctly marked parts, getting off the rack m16a1 parts aint a real problem.

I may need you to dig your parts out and document the markings so I can find the right casting marks since our guns are so close.
