From M14 Rifle History and Development Fifth Edition:

"Federal Ordnance built two types of M14 rifles, one with USGI parts and one with Chinese parts. Model numbers M14 and M14A were designed to accept USGI bolts and barrels. Otherwise, the receiver was manufactured to mate with Chinese bolts and barrels. USGI parts were used extensively in Federal Ordnance rifles through at least serial number 8877. The USGI parts were taken off USGI M14 rifles imported from Israel. By serial number 9279, if not earlier, Chinese and Taiwanese reproduction parts were used to assemble its rifles. For example, Federal Ordnance M14SA serial number 502XX was assembled at the factory on September 13, 1991 with Chinese manufacture bolt, operating rod, firing mechanism and barrel. Chinese and Taiwanese M14 parts were purchased from U. S. importers. Receivers with serial numbers above 60XXX have engraved heel markings. The model number changed from M14A to M14SA between serial numbers 9139 and 9279. Four digit serial number Federal Ordnance receivers observed were marked on the side with the letter F inside a circle. This marking was sometimes lightly stamped. The circle F marking has not been observed on serial numbers above 10000. Federal Ordnance sold complete rifles as well as stripped receivers. Federal Ordnance sold a few M14 rifles to walk-in retail customers and through Shotgun News advertisements but most were sold to firearms distributors."

I hope that this is not a stupid question but I was reading about m-14's and my question is. Is there a difference between the real full auto and the semi. Auto besides the selector switch. How do you tell the difference? Is it a visual thing that you can look at or what? I believe that my rifle has mostly usgi parts. I hope this doesn't make me look like a dumbass but I was just wondering. Thanks for any help in advance. Ser.#5676 fed. Ord.

u can see the switch right below the right side of the reciever, the stock will have a hole cut out. if u ever see a stock with a whole on the right side right bellow the reciever, it is usgi and was made for select fire. some of the internal parts in the trigger are different to make it run in full auto but everything else is the same.

Thanks noob, my stock has the hole cut in the stock. The stock is like a woodland camo composite and has a Harris bipod on it. I bought it from a friend that got it from a marine that has passed away now.the guy that got it from the gi never shot it. I can recall talking to the gi many years ago &whim telling me that he had it. That was25to 30 years ago.it hadn't been fired except for me in the last 30years. It looks like brand new.i got tons of clips &ammo and rifle case with it. I shot it with a few friends with iron sights and I was impress with how well it shot. Back to the hole in the stock,, it looks to me that if you put the selector switch Assy in that it couldn't do anything but fire full auto.
