Smile bolt stop

I've got a BM59 bolt stop assembly ordered from Reese surplus and hope to install it .I'm going to have to mill a small window inside the clip latch slot just forward of the rear bolt bridge support radius.
As for the clip guide I dont think I'll worry about it now, but there is enough material to machine a small dovetail in the receiver or even silver solder one on ,just a matter of personal taste.
If you look at the conversion Elmer did it appears to have the BM59 stop,the picture is on Different's web sight.

Thanks from CNelson

Angry You have opened the door.

Modified walnut stock
M14 trigger group with M1 trigger guard
All standard M14 TRW barrel and gas system
All GI parts

I might add that the receiver used in this was one that had one of its rear legs broke off,and I had welded it back on and it fired over 1200 rounds as an M1 belonging to a friend .I purchased it from him for this build .So no collector value has been lost.

Ya, mine doesn't have a bolt stop. But neither does my AK so operate the rifle the same.
Nam, I was taught to load 19rds in the mag so can do a hot reload with the M14. So have always done it with my M1As also. My converted M1 I don't have any issue loading 19rd mags in it with the bolt closed.

that's one of the coolest things ive seen in awhile. how many hours of labor did it take you? if it didn't take too many hours you could offer it as a service, but I would imagine it wasn't easy. I know I'd be interested in something like that

Unfortunatly no FFL, never really had a desire to do this as a service.Its a fair amount of work to duplicate everthing you see on this rifle.I've mentored a few people on these but that's about it.

Thanks from CNelson and boomer1983
