February was a pretty great month!

I got A LOT of sweet parts, all NOS or NIW. Some really hard to find and collectible. Notable pieces are the 2 NOS H & R bolts and the NIW SA pack of extractors, shown with my other pack I got a couple years ago.
Almost all H & R parts, the bottom 2 gas cylinder tubes are SA, and the NIW pack of extractors is SA. I don't know what manufacturer the loose extractors are.

I found a new honey hole!

Hello, m14brian.
Wow, I'm very pleased that you found some H&R parts you were looking for. So, what are you building?, besides a collection of M14 parts. Yet, I will still think of you when I see an H&R part come up.

Thanks from m14brian

Besides the bolts, rear sight parts, and trigger housings, they are for my collection!
Thank you for all of your moral support in this endeavor of mine.

Oh, and if you ever get to the Eastern Sierra side of Ca. (out the back door of Yosemite NP) give me a shout.. Plenty of room to go play up here...
Have fun with your builds.. Boltaction.

nice pile of parts you scored there Brian! I had a couple packs of ejectors, but I opened and used them. I wish I would have gotten a few loose ejectors to use so I could have kept the packs sealed. Live and learn. I have never seen an unopened pack of extractors for the M14. Very nice score with those.

Thanks from m14brian

Thanks, Brian! I've been aggressive this last month for sure.
No, they are standard marked H & Rs-

H & R B10
H & R B7
H & R B4

Which is cool, I have enough NOS WCE elevations and NOS HRA-W windages to make about 7 completely NOS rear sights now.

Oh my god Brian, I get stuff like about everyday. The fricken postal worker knows me on a first name basis.

To be honest, I sometimes forget I have a package coming and only remember when it arrives. Still I may take a picture or two if you like.

I always love seeing piles of new parts.
This last month it was like things were coming every day or every other day. My other hobbies sidetrack me occasionally though and I can go a while without ordering any parts.

Dang - no wonder I can't find anything - y'all are the black hole of H&R parts !

I am up for adoption if you need a 62 year old kid that is housebroken ( according to the wife ), and will curate the collection responsibly in future........................

Brian here's what I landed in the last month or so not all new old stock but some very rare parts none the less.

These are in excellent condition and will be put to good use.


These parts are worth mentioning, New in wrap Win. Trigger Guard, New in wrap NM Front sight, H&R New in wrap Trigger.


New from wrap C.P.P NM windage knob, Lufkin Elevation pinion and windage knob, several new WCE elevation pinions and a couple wright windage knobs. Lets not forget the new H&R bolt or the all H&R Trigger group in near perfect condition.




These are very special not because they are new but because in the almost five years I have been collecting I have only seen three up for sale, these are very very rare, and in excellent condition. M14E2 Original Type I Stabilizers.


I got lucky with this barrel, it is a New From Tube SAK NM barrel!





While I don't know if I can top this last month, next month is looking pretty good as I have a very good lead on a bonafide new H&R barrel.
