Default 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)

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.
