I thanked him for the offer and told him that I would be happy just to have one that is in-spec, please.) ... and they shipped me a replacement ... which was also out of spec ... and I had to live with it. After that experience I never wondered why Armscorp disappeared shortly thereafter.

In 2010 I bought another receiver (4th of July Sale ), this one from Fulton Armory, and I found it to be an excellent product.

Late Summer 2013 I noticed the M14 barrel standing in a corner of my South gunsafe and remembered that I had not yet built that rifle.

After the Build I added a Bassett Machine quick-remove scope mount (Standard Low Scope Mount Package Item# SM14/1A-Lo) and I have been very happy with the results.

In what way was it out of spec.? I bought one that was pretty good, then two that were out of spec. (both in the same way), which I returned.
Looking for Rifles:
Springfield Armory 5,940,259, 5,840,184, 4,238,435 and 2,023,912.
Harrington & Richardson 5,549,399.

Words that are always found together:

Air Show and Rammstein

"REPO" M1 Parts: The parts you buy that they come to take back later on.
