When did the Chinese run out of parts and stop building M14s?

Is there any chance that they will build them again for the Canadian market?

Thanks!

I don't think they ran out of parts. I know Clinton signed a bill (executive order?) that stopped the importation of Chinese-made firearms.

My understanding was most of the Canadian Import guns from 94 and on, were guns already built for U.S import.

IIRC, the first Chinese M-14's were supplied to Phillipine Moro terrorists since the Phillipine Army was using M-14's. Made ammo supply easier.

Would have more sense to supply them with clone M-1 Carbines.

H20...

Your on Gun nutz right?... Moving Target put up pictures the other day of supposed M14s coming in from China with synthetic stocks this time.

Dunno how true it is as John at Marstar has confirmed that the factories assembling the parts for his runs "dont even have the lights on" anymore... So we will see if this new shipment of synthetics comes in.. Who knows...

As for the Clinton Ban, we arent affected up here in Canada, the M14s (M305s) we get can be bought for 400-500 bucks, but they usually need some tuning and a new stock..... They are good project guns...

Yes, and I understand the factory has been closed for some time now.

I read about these new ChiCom rifles on Nutz, but don't about their quality or who makes them.
Keep us posted!

Who ever thought I would be envious of Canada?
Do you also get to shoot cheap Norinco ammo? All we get is Chicom clones of US shotguns.

I think there was some Norinco ammo floating around up here, but that would have been before I had gotten into the game.... Sometimes there is South African, and I know some guys that got some German stuff, but for the most part its 7.62x39 for surplus.

Id be interested in some 30-06 surplus for my Garand and .308 for the M305s, but I dunno when that stuff will be coming around.

What is exactly dated on them?

Rumors I have heard was that the Chinese were stacked asshole deep in M14's waiting to import to the USA when Clinton shut the Chinese Imports down in 1994. Because of this, the Chinese have not made any new stock rifles and been selling what was destine for the USA in 1994, to Canada and Europe for the last 15 years. Of course it is still all rumors.
