Different,

You are absolutely correct. My mistake

By the way, would you know where I can research more info on #001096?
It is a devine, would like some dates and such for it.
Thanks

pfin, thanks and no problem. From my book M14 Rifle History and Development

"Guns Illustrated conducted a test of a bedded but rack grade M1A with a Winchester chromium plated M14 barrel in January, 1973. The rifle consistently shot 1.5 to 2 MOA out to 500 yards using 1968 Lake City 173 grain Match and Sierra 168 grain Match hand load ammunition. The M1A became eligible for use in NRA High Power shooting matches on January 01, 1974. The NRA had modified Rule 3.1.1 in the High Power Rifle Rule Book to allow commercial made M14 type rifles to be used in competition shooting matches. At about the same time, the American Rifleman tested and reviewed M1A serial number 001562 in the March, 1974 issue."

Assume two to three months before March, 1974 that the NRA staff evaluated M1A serial number 001562 for normal publication lag. So, I'd estimate serial number 001096 was made in mid-1973. HTH

Smoky, was serial number 02555X made in May, 1983 or May, 1984? May, 1984 doesn't make sense from what we have listed in the database.

Thanks, Smoky! The list has been updated.

06-25-05 updated and

FYI, I filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the BATFE on my NFA Registered Springfield Armory, Inc. M1A. I received copies of the original ATF Form 2 and all the subsequent Forms 3 and 4 since. The forms were highly redacted but now I know when my Title 2 M1A receiver was actually made, 05/11/84. I also know how many owners it has had before me and how long each had it.
