That not a stripper clip guide. It is a dedicated scope attachment. SAI has been selling them for decades, used with factory mounts.

Do you have a picture of the underside of the heel, as well as the markings on the bolt?

The floating sleeve clip guide replacement is typical of those made by Leatherwood for early, commercial, ART II sales.

Original poster, just to be clear, you live and found this in Denmark?
Very unique and interesting. Trying to figure out all the "why" is a challenge. I thing the man that modified it was probably a "why not" kind of guy instead of a "why" type.

For example... "Why not get drunk while working on rifles"

Being that it is Europe, I'm guessing either it was a salvage attempt on a demilled or damaged rifle....or....it was done to comply with a law regarding reuse of surplus arms.

The underside of the heel and the markings on the bolt will give us more info.

Yes, I live in Denmark but this was found in Germany. It's not a problem to get a legit M14 to Denmark. Its easier to get it legally if it has been converted to a repeating rifle instead of a semi-auto. However, to own a legit semi-auto M14 is doable. Many of the receivers that appear in Europe at the moment is former Israeli M14. Typical they have been disassembled and they are not seen that often.

So if there is anyone looking for Israeli parts please let me know and I'll help as much as possible. The Nimrod scopes are very hard to come by, but the stocks are often seen :-)

The uneven stamp on the left should be a dead giveaway.

USMC, not US MC with the S higher than the other letters. Someone faked it.

Stay well away.

It's just as fake as my x-girlfriend. No doubt about it

Also, the seller won't reply to my mails...

Now I just really would like to see the markings... simply to see what parts were used

I finally got a hold of the seller in Germany. The rifle was on auction, but all of a sudden pulled. I asked the reason for this, and the seller said it was illegal for him to sell it, which is not true. I asked for pictures and if he would sell it as parts, which he said no to. He said it would be destroyed.

I'm sorry, I can't get more pictures or bring a happy end to this story.

Similar thing happened here recently. A seller on Gunbroker offered what appeared to be an attempt to at least replicate a full auto M14 by making illegal mods to a commercial receiver. It disappeared all of a sudden.
I asked the seller what happened to it, he said it was sent off to get crunched.
