Who out there owns a M14 type rifle?
I tried to do a search on M14 and M1A, but the search engine doesn't do 3 letter words I guess.

At any rate, I'm wondering who and how many of you own M14 Type Rifles.

I currently own two.

My best is a SAI preban
It sports a dummy button kit for that authentic look.:)

The second is Norinco which still hasn't been returned to me from the smith in OK who did the USGI bolt conversion to ther receiver. (sorry no pic)

i sold mine last week. it was a springfield loaded

Been there done that and also regretted it.

At one time I had 5 M14 type rifles.

I also had one that I purchased as a barreled receiver that I ended up selling before I ever had it in my posession.

I've had 4 Springfields, 3 Armscorp, 1 Smith Ltd, 1 Norinco and one TRW that was a reweld. Out of 10, at least I still have 2.

The one I have now is a Loaded M1A version that I bought in the mid 90's.

Closest I have is a M-1 no A. Would love a M1A..
