"This has been rewelded to spec.. only thing it has all of the weld in the way.
Boys, this is where the rubber meets the road.
If you're handy with a milling machine or (have all winter with a dremel) you could have a nice M1A receiver. Manufactured By TRW.
Can be used as a dummy gun. Cannot fire a round in its current state (or accept the breach bolt)."

I ain't so sure it's even a good paperweight.

I think I've found my next build. I wonder how it'll look in a SAGE MOD 1 stock.

Question of the month...or year!

Is that better than an LRB or the new Smith Ent?
Link Posted: 12/14/2009 8:08:18 PM EDT
Better than both. Its TRW.

Looks like a dog welded it with a turd.

Crappy welding and he didn't fill the takedown notch which is a big problem. I have seen some nice rewelds and that one aint for shit.

Gee

Do some great milling and finishing and you've got a real machine gun. It is an M14 receiver.  If it is truly aigned and in spec and can be machined to original state it's a hell of a deal. You could get a parts kit and have a real M14 for about $2,000

You know if I was a bit more cynical, bitter and suspicous I might think that an ATF agent was baiting us...

Well they could have done far better on the welding. That is horrid looking job. I doubt that thing will ever be more than a conversational piece. I'd have a tough time spending the funds on just the shipping for it. If I were even remotely considering to attempt this sort of thing I'd rather receive the two pieces before any welding took place by someone so crudely slobbered it together.

He doesn't take CREDIT CAREDS... so don't try and use them, whatever they are!
