I stand in awe of you both; I did however score a NIW 8/65 sling from member Pipestone. It was dated August of '65; I was 18 that month, that's about it. (Said tongue in cheek).

Thanks from m14brian, XM25Ren and chief on one

In this thread I posted two NM front sights above a new in wrap NM front sight. They are bad pictures but if you look close you can see the NM.062.

I have three not in the wrap, one cast and these two forged ones.

I will try to take some better pictures maybe tomorrow.

Ren

This February brought me a nice USGI walnut stock with some fancy grain and a 183 series Mini 14 for my final M14 conversion project. This April might bring me a new M14. We shall see.

Thanks from XM25Ren

Here are the M14 NM Front sights as promised. The three on the bottom left are the NM and the one bottom row on the right is a Winchester standard M14 front sight. The others are standard M14 front sights.

Nice haul, guys!
February was great for me as well.
I got my very first Walnut Loaded M1A, with a fine cut of wood on that stock!. 960 rds of Hirt. A few books. A bunch of cleaning supplies. Some spare parts from Fulton.

Thanks from m14brian

I'm going to have to see this, you know this is the one part keeping me from doing my build.
I have a couple half leads but they haven't got me one yet. I know they are out there.

Nice group of parts you got there too Ren, especially the sights. I should be more focused on them myself.

Well it is obvious where all the parts are going! Who says that there is a shortage of M14 parts? Just check this stock pile. Sure glad Bula is building new stuff to keep these rifles running. Here I thought that just getting M1A's and M14's was an addiction!! You all have upped the bar to a whole new level. Keep it up>
