Got it in this morning & am way happy with it! In the 236xxx range, it must be an early one. Bolt & op rod are GI parts - so is the stock with cut for fun switch. NM front sight. I looked around for a scope & found optics planet was having a big sale - got the scope I wanted for a 51% discount!

Took it clear apart to discover it hadn't been cleaned for a long time - pretty dirty. Spiffed it up & lubed with white lithium grease. Mucho slicker now.

Fire for function as soon as preppy daughter moves her ride & I can go out on a remote county road! :bigrin: SW

OOOH. I am crazy with envy. Congratulations.
I qualified with the M14 in 1966 at Fort Dix. Hit almost all of the pop-ups. Easy shooter. Been looking for a way to afford one for some time. We were all disappointed when Jimmy Carter had most of them chopped up.

I suspect that you will enjoy that.

Bern! Long time - no see!

I tried the EER scope but I like the clean look & put it on something else. It shoots well with irons & I was smacking head size rocks out to 100 yards a few days ago.

I also qualified with an M-14 at Lejeune... then we had to trade them in for Mighty Mattel plastic M-16s. I clearly recall the one a was issued was by TRW. SW

very nice , you scored here i think ,

i still have my M1A and my M16civlian in my US accumulation that is mostly long gone now , those two i could not part with , i enjoy shooting them way too much to part with them , you will enjoy that a lot ,
with or without the scope - i have one on mine because it allows me to shoot the longer ranges that i love with the 308 but if i could i would also enjoy the irons on that one ,
