BTW.....a plastic M16 muzzle cover just fits over it, but it is a bear to get off.

Overall, I would say that it is working out rather well, and would recommend it along with the gas lock front sight.

My next build will also have one, but this time, I am going with the dovetail version, and an SEI tritium "bar style" front sight arrangement.

Note: I thought long and hard if I wanted to go with the LRB M25 receiver for this build, but decided on the M14SA instead, as I have faith in the Bassett mount if I decide to add optics to the equation.

Very nice Frag. Safe home.

Thanks CA357. A nice thing about being deployed is that the xtra funds made while I'm here will support my next M14 build.

I love the pics. And, YES, the smooth side stock was a very early version. They are quite rare and have become collectible. Until you fill in the selector cutout and paint one, that is. Ha.

Get home safe and do that LRB. I have one LRB receiver left waiting to be built.

I heard that they were collectable, but I like them because they are lighter in weight as compared to the later types with the checkering. I have around 4 of them last I looked.

Lucky dog...I prefer the lighter stocks, too. HueyGunner (Jeff) has the carbon fiber stock, but it needs to be bedded.

The checkerless stock pictured was given to me, believe it or not.

I found another one just recently for 25 bucks at a flea market. No buttplate or rear sling swivel, and someone had painted it black.

I am planning to use it for my LRB build when I get back, after I do some work to it.

UPDATE:

Looking hard at an LRB ARMS M14SA Tanker. Alredy built the way I wanted to build it, and only 5 rds fired thru it.

Looks like I'm gonna go with it as of now.

Built by LRB ARMS with the following NIW/New/like new parts:

Criterion 18.5in chrome lined std contour bbl

Sadlak op-rod spring guide

SEI parts as follows:
Vortex direct connect flash hider
Gas lock front sight (dovetail)
Extended bolt stop

USGI as follows:
TRW bolt
HRA op-rod
SA TG
KMT gas system
WCE rear sight assembly
synthetic stock

Pretty much exactly what I was looking for.
