This is a discussion on Roland Beaver within the The M14 forums, part of the M14 M1A Forum category; I 've just been advised that he's finished my m-14.
I can't wait to get it
he takes awhile, but he's good and an ex-marine
Nice hope you can get some pics of that beast, did you mail it to him or did you drop it of? Im just west of houston and was wondering how close it is, if he has a shop here in the area( if not thats ok i was just wondering ).
I've had a custom built Garand from Mr. Beaver for close to 20 yrs. now. It has a Douglas Win.308 barrel and will bench shoot 3/4" at 100 yds. with handloads! The Stock was built by him and is about 2" longer than normal at the LOP. This is also a laminite stock! It has the GI buttplate as he tapered it at the right angle so it would fit. Everything on it is GI NM as far as I can tell that can be and also came with a milled trigger guard It has USMC MATCH on the front of the barrel back of the front sight. I paid $1400 for it at the time and it was my first battle rifle as I wanted something to protect my family with out in the country that would speak with athority! I have a bandolier full of my handloads hanging in my room to grab and go! Wish I had one of his M-14's also!!!
