Is it true that HTS from M1 will work in M1A? I have a Polytech M14S with the fake FH. Need to install USGI FH+bayo lug ... so need to install 5 US parts (including the FH). I plan to replace the HTS and Handguard. BTW, what are good sources for ordering USGI parts for M1A (besides Fulton Armory)?
What the hell is HTS?
Ooopss ... HTS = Hammer Trigger Sear ..... basically the fire control group.
Trigger/sear assembly, should work, have read that sear sometimes needs work if using m14/m1a in garand. Not sure it there is any problem going the other way.
14 trigger (with attached sear) will need to be modified to fit the garand,
a garand trigger(with attached sear) will work fine in a M1A
hammers are interchangble, as are the springs, and pins
Must be an FAL guy.
Over here it called a trigger assembly.
You are right, I started off being a FAL guy ... but my M1 collection now supercedes the FAL by a 2:1 margin. But the old terms already stucked in my brain.
Thank you for all your help. I guess the solution is easier than I thought. I can simply use my Garand hammer, trigger-sear to replace the chinese parts on my Poly M14S to make it 922r compliant. Great!
Just to clarify, for those who might have come in late (which might or might not include you), the idea is not to replace FIVE parts to become compliant, the idea is that you may have NO MORE THAN TEN FOREIGN PARTS off the list below if you want to add a flash hider and/or bayonet lug. No flash, no lug (or other "evil" parts), no problem, have all the foreign parts you want. Note that using a USGI mag gets three foreign parts off your list, BUT prevents you from legally using the wonderful, cheap Type 57 mags in your gun.
(1) Frames, receivers, receiver castings, forgings or stampings
(3) Barrel extensions
(4) Mounting blocks (trunions)
(5) Muzzle attachments
(7) Bolt carriers
(8 ) Operating rods
(9) Gas pistons
(10) Trigger housings
(16) Pistol grips
(17) Forearms, handguards
(18 ) Magazine bodies
Note that not all these parts apply to M14, regardless, you can have no more than 10 foreign from the list in order to legally add evil features. (Also check your state law for evil feature compliance.)
