Hello, I have a pre-ban Federal Ordnance Inc. M-14 SA for sale or trade.
This is [b]NOT[/b] one of the Fed Ord M-14's that was built on Chinese parts with the soft bolt that gets out of headspace. From what I was told when I bought the gun and from the markings I have found on the gun that this one was built up using Springfield Armory parts. The SA after the model number is supposed to dictate that and the bolt has Springfield Armory markings on it. The other parts of the gun are not marked, other than serial numbers, from what I can tell, but they diffenently do not have the Chinese markings that you would normally find on the trigger pack, etc.
The stock is a perfect condition synthetic stock that is currently brown in color, but I am going to refinish the stock in black to give the gun a newer style look to it. The finish on the gun I would say is 90% or better I will hopefully be able to get my camera fixed in the next couple of days so I can email pics to anyone interested. I have one 30rd mag and one USGI 20rd mag. The gun comes with the sling. The stock also has a nice non-slip buttpad on it that looks original, but I am not sure. This gun does have the flash suppressor and bayonet lug. I have performed all of the safety checks that are recommend for the M1A1's that I have read to do online and the gun checks fine.
This is my first M1A1 so I am not an expert on them but I will try to answer all questions asked to the best of my knowledge or I will confide in you fellow board members for help in answering the questions.
I will take $1000 for the gun, sling, and both mags plus $10 FedEx insured shipping. I will also consider trades or partial trades for any firearms chambered in 7.92X57mm (8mm Mauser) or Iver Johnson handguns. I do have my C&R license. I am really looking for a G43, G41, or a K43. Egyptian Hakim mags, gunsmithing tools and accessories, Mauser scope mounts, and scopes will also be considered as partial trades.
