    Default Bob, are you falling behind on M-14s ?

    Thought I'd share some pics of recent aquisitions;

    1) Norinco M-14s (USGI stock handguard and FH)
    2) LRB M-14s (USGI stock, FH with rest TRW parts)
    3) Springfield M1 Garand, CMP Correct Grade, post war
    4) H&R M1 Garand, CMP Correct Grade, post war

    Get 'em while you can

    If Bob is not, the rest of us are in the dirt on this one in my humble collection.....

    Where does one score the parts to build and M14. I've never ran across a kit or such and sure would like to have one. Always been one of my favorites!

    Yes I know I'm falling behind....LOL

    I need to post a pic of my 14.....I know you're waiting to see it. Nice Garands when did you get those???

    I should have my 2 CMP garands in a couple weeks. Me and another member ordered some at the same time about 4-5 weeks ago. Hopefully their in the mail...I've heard that before though....LOL

    Bob;
    Just kidding you of course, but I am glad you planted the M-14 idea in my brain. Found the nice Chicom copy I've been looking for. Made a good place to put the USGI FH I bought a while back. Hellva a thing to buy a rifle just so I have a place to use a FH

    Pics would be cool when you find the time.

    Picked up both the Garands right before my interest turned to M-14 clones. Guess it was just a natural progression or evolution.

    Also, been buying up some Greek 30-06 from CMP as I go. Great stuff if you didn't already know.

    BigAl;
    I'll keep my eye out for a nice light birch stock. I've been hanging around some of the M-14 forums lately. They are a very dedicated crowd.

    bsouthnow;
    Only place I've seen parts kits for these lately is at Sarco. Somewhere around $800. Might want to run around here to see what's the latest;

    Parts have gotten expensive lately. I'd heard it's cause of M-14 deployed in Iraq have increased the demand for parts and thus the $. You might be better off money wise finding a lightly used LRB or older Springfield built with USGI parts or a Chicom upgraded with USGI parts.

    My interest always seems to wonder. A little of this, a lot of that. Gotta get 'em all

    Does anyone know the history on the Chi-Com M 14? What was it intended for?

    While I suspect it was in part to sell to the US market, I seem to also recall a shipment of these being found on a ship in the Phillippines headed for the rebels?????

    I really need to break down and spend the cash for a M14. Anyone want to dump one cheap?
