Default The old days

I'm on the new order list for a new lrb receiver. So I decided to put my parts kit I had together. I have had the hard parts for many years and decided I needed to get it built. This is what I found in the paperwork.

How about those prices on the M14 parts. Super nice.

That list of parts looked like one from my December 2002 parts order so I dug it out. The only difference was that the bolt was $42.

That bolt ended up in a SAI M1A. The rest of the parts ended up on a Fulton Armory barreled receiver back in 2013 resulting in an excellent rifle I use for local matches.

Like all of you I wish I purchased more parts but at the time spending more than $200 on parts with two kids in college seemed excessive.

Multiply those prices by 1.66 to update them to 2021 levels.

I have a 2002 CMP catalog, the prices were:

M14 op rod $50.
M14 Trigger group $35.

M1 Garand "Grade A" stripped receivers:
SA: $250
H&R $275
IHC $285
WRA: $300

M1903 SA rifles:
High serial rifles were $400 w/ S stock and $475 w/ a C stock.
Stripped or barreled M1903 receivers were $25 to $100 depending on condition...(the catalog noted that "they sell out quickly" when they are available).

I was not into collecting until about 10 years later, but that 2002 catalog is enough to almost bring a tear to my eye...
