M14 reciever half serial number search.
 
I was digging through some old gear the other day and found my Marksmanship Data Book from PI. It has my Rifle serial number on it 112879 if anyone comes across a cut Winchester with that serial number and would be will to part with it please let me know. Heck I like to have a picture if it if nothing else.
Thanks

I hope you will be able to find that. A serial number search indicates your rifle was made at Winchester in 1960-1961.

Are you sure it was Winchester ? That was in second block of SA rifles 1959 . I have 111,xxx. And 113,xxx
Number comes up as SA on the historical site.

You could always find a side stamped Polytec M14 rifle and have whatever you would like laser engraved on the heel to make it look like an original.

The number is correct, 50 years ago Is a long time to remember I just assumed it was a Winchester based on the serial number look up. The serial number is written on the data book by me back then.

On day before pre Qual day we had a recruit on the 200 yard line firing and the lug and roller sheared off the rifle and the bolt or parts came out of the rifle and skinned the edge his right eyebrow off.

Ceasefire was called everyone turned in ammo and went to the grass. Don't remember if it was the whole series or just out platoon. We were cattle cared turned in our rifles drew new rifles and they did appear new. We went back to the range cleaned them greased then. The next morning shot them 200, 300 and 500. Them again the the afternoon later than normal them the next day fired for qualification.

"Best Parts" has a slew of em on Gun Broker at the moment. I think it's Sarco or Numrich. I'd email or call them, ask if they would look. Some of the pics are good enough to see serial #, but many are group pics of 10 or so. I hope you can find it!
