Hello from the Republic of Western Canada

Hello everyone. I just purchased my first (hopefully not my last) m14 variant rifle a few months back and have been lurking around here for awIle longer.
The wealth of information here as well as Tonys youtube vidoes have been a huge help.

My rifle is a newer Norinco M305 18.5" , that I am using as a shootable rifle until I gather all the parts for my build. I lucked out and my local gunsmith had a Sage chassis that he let me have on payments (only two to go). In the time being I cut off the back off of my plastic stock and attached an ATI side folder for a mossberg 500. Once the Sage is payed off I'm going to try and track down a med weight barrel.

Forgot to mention earlier that I also made my own bolt release out of my stock bolt catch by oxy acetalene welding a tab to it, best upgrade so far
