Default M14 bbl on M1 receiver build

I built one too so did my friend in NJ (he used a HRA). Before the M1A's were around in affordable numbers, M14 parts were really cheap including barrels which were around $10.

everyone one was just a little different, I used two M14 front stock ferrules to make-up the half inch difference. I did use the rear half of an M1 op rod and made a straight tube for it so the M14 spring would work. The M14 stock need modification inside and the front legs of the M1 receiver had to be ground down. Also used a op rod spring guide to lock the front of the magazine and a modified BM59 trigger housing. Not difficult to make the parts required. I have photos somewhere. Mine worked without any problems
