I'm an AK guy but I would like to find an M14 for my father in-law like he used to carry in Korea. Does anyone know a good wholesale dealer?

If you want the best of the best you want a Chinese M14 receiver built up by Ron Smith at Smith Enterprise, Inc.
I suggest a heel stamped Poly Tech receiver, maybe two

There were no M14's in the Korean war. Too Early.

They may have had some in Korean garrisons durring the Vietnam war. ( Not likley)

The 2nd and 7th Infantry Divisions based in the Republic of Korea were equipped with the M14 rifle until 1968. The 2nd Infantry Division phased in the M16A1 from late 1968 to May 1970.

Are they better than the Forged LRBs?

Just curious as I thought about having Ron build me one of his Crazy Horse SDMs using the LRB receiver.
