Well I made contact with Warbird, and he will be fitting the trw bolt to my M-14S. I am going to just give the M-14 system a try again. Thanks for your input. Now I just need to find more mags for this beast.
Cheers James

www.eliteguns.com Go to mags/clips, and click on the "buy with paypal" button to find the 20 rounder purchase option. I just got my 6 mags for $25 each, and they are all USGI marked excellent condition (justa little finish wear from rubbing in the packaging).

I was but I did a trade and ended up with a Devine SA and Ihave an M1 garand in 308. but like I said this thing is mocking me. I think since it was an unfinished project from a dead friend and I have piles of his guns I just wnat to get rid of it.

I think these are the same fake USGI mags that are being sold on gunbroker. They look good, but have you tried them for function?

Yes I have, I bought 5 of them and they are BSW-R1 marked USGI producition and function 100%. They have the proper number of welds and the proper magazine notch. Several people on M14forum can also verify they are USGI production.

See the tacked thread at the top of the M1/M1A forum for a description of the fake USGI mags, or go over to M14forum.com and look in their magazine forum to find a full description of the fake USGI mags. I believe the fake ones are "W" or Western marked ones. I have no knowledge of BSW-R1 marked fake mags, nor have I ever read any reports of fake BSW-R1 mags.

[ETA] sorry for the hijack, just trying to clarify the other posters question.
