jariggs, I appreciate the idea to post this information for M14 fans. I already had the information in the book but I've changed the relevant paragaph to this:

"Military service barrels are made of molybdenum-chromium alloy steel. M14 rack grade barrels are chromium plated, standard (lightweight) contour and have a 1:12 twist rate. There were several manufacturers of USGI M14 chromium plated barrels. The following is a list of the manufacturers along with the barrel identifying markings and observed dates of production:

Harrington & Richardson (H-R) - May 1960 to February 1964

Olin-Mathieson Chemical Corporation (Winchester) - February 1961 to May 1964

Saco-Lowell / Maremont (SAK, 26978) - February 1969 to May 1983

Springfield Armory (S A) - November 1959 to October 1967

Thompson-Ramo-Wooldridge (TRW) - January 1963 to April 1966"

Outstanding info Different. BTW, you do know I was kidding with you in my above post right?...lol. I do like the way you put it together, it will be an excellent reference.
