Default My New Build

I had the opportunity to visit with nf1e and get his help putting together all of the parts Iíve been collecting for the last year and a half.





I sincerely appreciate all of his hospitality and help!

nf1e handed it to me when I showed up this morning. I agree it looks really good and belongs on that rifle. I don't know where he has them made.

Thanks for allowing me to overlook such a great combination of excellent parts in a build. I always enjoy visiting and sharing my tools with other M14 enthusiasts. Right components go together like a dream. Barrel hand tightened to between 10 and 15 deg so it was just a torque on and headspace is right at 1.632 with no need for any finish reaming. Function firing was 100% and with DLupini's eagle eye, barrel indexing was spot on. Windage with front sight centered and rear on the mark she was where we all like to see it. What an enjoyable time in the shop and on the range. Always pleased when a traditional M14 build with a GI profile barrel does under 2 moa on it's first outing. Even ended up with a nice pile of once fired LC brass for the bench. Whatta Hobby!

Watch the forum and start buying parts as they come up. Took over a year to find them all. But patients turned into a nice rifle.

My parts:
Bula receiver, LRB (Criterion) standard profile 1:12 Chrome lined barrel, HRA stock, NOS TRW bolt, HRA oprod, HRA trigger group, Springfield gas cylinder, Lufkin Elevation and Windage knobs, and I don't know the manufacturer of the all the small parts, but they were in great to NOS condition.
