Welcome from Utah! What part of NY you from? I lived in Saratoga Springs and Syracuse for a while. Sure do miss those falls, but nothing else. Welcome to the forum brother!

I am from the Albany area, my son is graduating from Syracuse in a couple of weeks. The winters are getting harder to deal with every year that passes, the politics SUCK because of NYC, but the area is beautiful and the fishing is still great and momma won't move ,so my ass is stuck here.

Thanks from MrShmitty and hurryinhoosier

Welcome aboard the M14 Forum from Northern California.

My first custom build started with a mint H&R M14 stock I found at a gun show, that was 4 M1A's ago...They can become addicting, take that as a warning...

Here it is, built on a LRB receiver and all H&R parts.

Mac




Thanks from Pappy1600

Welcome!
Very nice stock, great deal.
Upstate is nice, I worked in Rochester in the early 80's, and also near Schenectady.

Thanks from Pappy1600

Seeing your stock motivated me to find a rifle I built on a similar stock.
Decades ago there was a guy, don’t recall, specialized in selling USGI stocks.
I think mine was from him.
I wanted to build an M1A that looked just like the M14 I carried in the Army in the 1960’s



Thanks from Pappy1600

Welcome to the group.

As my wife would say .... Albany isn't 'Upstate' NY.

Of course ... she's from Scotland and an American Citizen by way of Massena, NY. Any idea where that is? I've been there a few times over the years, and THAT'S Upstate NY.

Thanks from Pappy1600

Anything above Rockland county is Upstate, but Massena ? yeah that's really Upstate for sure! I'm sure it's still snowing up there!
