Donít know yet. Picked it up from the FFL last week and have two young kids (3 and 5) and a full time job. Hoping to get to the range within a week or so.

Good question. We are essentially still under the 1994 AWB, so the 20 round USGI (pre-ban) mags are OK but not bayonet lugs (since the LBR receiver is not pre-Ď94).

Nice looking. I have one just like that built up from a Dupage kit. Mostly Win parts including the bolt. Good shooter and hope to improve it with a tighter fitting stock that I worked on over the winter. I'll give it a try on Monday when the local Marine Corps League restarts its monthly friendly matches.

Took my M14 restocked Fulton/Win to the range today and it ran perfectly. A few shooters came over to comment on the well-worn look.

The stock is a well sanded walnut literally fished out of a dumpster after a friend spotted it behind a local school with a JROTC program. They were cleaning house and the stock was just junk to them apparently. The DOJ stamp is still visible. Cleaned it up, added a coat of BLO and lightly routed out and refilled the trigger group contact area for a tight fit.

The stock that came with the Dupage kit looked very similar to the one in the picture posted by the OP but it was too loose for any accuracy. That stock is a project for another day.

Love the OP stock ( Looks like Birch?). Great looking rifle and would like to see range report! I have a SA Std with a birch stock. Too bad MA required castration of bayo lug!
