Jason I am feeling the same .
On another note this was a failed bankrupt business that got bailed out
an American business they got bailed out and as an American I hope that they flourish and do well and if the rifle looks nice I might buy one just to help support that American business sure itís not a collector but maybe itíll be an awesome shooter and Iím just a guy that likes to support the American economy buy American
Help American by supporting a new American company

If not picky about receivers, Fulton currently has them....

Can order one from LRB but about a year wait time....

Fulton makes a good M14 receiver, very easy to build on. I have used 3 of them

I guess losing less overall money during bankruptcy is technically better off.

So it's very likely that they are going to make Garand parts that don't quite look like an historical Garand parts?

That sounds kinda like a kiss of death thing to me.
