I have seen one conversion wherein the M1 was barreled with an M14 front half . the rifle used enbloc clips, modified M1 op rod and spring guide {shortened to M14 specs. The front half of the M14 stock was grafted to the M1 stock. Pretty slick. Some one here may also have seen it and have pictures.

the M14 receiver is a half inch shorter than the M1 receiver so the M14 stock needs alteration to fit the M1 receiver with M14 barrel, Not really a problem if you have the skill and tools.

Nothing new , starting back from pre M1A era with Elmer's conversions . This one you can tell was done entirely by hand it appears .
The M1 and M14 differ by exactly .365" as far as the way they mount in a stock . This requires a simple extension to the ferule.
Anyone that wants to see how these conversions are done in a precision manner ,you can go over to Weapons Guild and see my complete tutorial on building one.
Also on M14 forum and M14 BR forum .Complete with drawings of all parts.
