Just ordered two m14 Receivers from LRB. One is a m25 rear lug and the other is m14sa receiver. The m14sa receiver will be ready in 4-6 months and the m25 will be ready in 6-8 months :mad:. Oh well, looks like I have time to buy some reloading gear for .308.

You are one lucky duck. I want one soo bad but don't have the time and resources to put one together. I think the fact of just having one of those receivers sitting at my place would just discourage me. I'm currently saving my money for the complete LRB M1A. BTW, did you pay dealer or retail cost on that receiver?

What is the price difference between Dealer an Retail costs?

I'd like to get a LRB rear lug, but jeez at almost 4 figures, they are pricey.

They would not take a payment at this time, you have to pay at the time of their shipment. So i assume they want me to pay full retail :mad: (which is in my account):) .

JWC6 I hope you are joking on that wait time :eek: !!!!!!!!!


The price cost to retail difference is $145.95 for the M14SA and the M25 REAR LUG is $196. So not too bad, but i would rather save the $341.95 if there is a way.

You'll be waiting a while on the M25 rear lug. I've had one on order for quite a while. If I had wanted a standard M25 receiver (no lug) I would have had it about 2 months ago, they started shipping them in early January. AFAIK Lou has not yet made a run of M25 rear lug receivers and I don't know when he plans to.

I can wait a bit longer. Some guys have been waiting since 2004 for their M25 receivers. I've had an all-TRW parts kits ready and waiting for an M25 receiver since the end of 2004 and it will be getting a Krieger barrel. It's going into a dark green JAE-100 stock (which doesn't even use the rear lug) but I've heard mixed reports about the accuracy & solidity of the JAE. The quality & feel of the JAE stock is fantastic but if the rifle doesn't shoot to my liking in the JAE it will be going into the McMillan M3A I have-- and that's where the rear lug comes into play.

FYI, it took just a couple days shy of 12 months from order to DROS for my Fulton Peerless M1A.

Prices guys give me some prices, TRW :p I've put a few rifle together, I'd love an LBR receiver but can't get myself to pay the cost or wait that long. :( guess I stuck with a lesser receiver....b2B

I called to order a receiver last November and was told the wait was 6 months. Then Lou told me that a rifle would only take two: :D

Money Talks and @#@#@$%#% walks. The complete rifle costs twice as much as the receiver along.

Because their priority is to sell complete rifles.

LRB receivers are pretty good. Heard this somewhere:

LRB receivers are designed by gun nut for gun nuts.:D

LRB receivers are the best, cant get any better then a LRB...actually, a USGI receiver but you know how that goes.

So, how much do the LRB M14's cost? Are they selling for less than the $2459 retail price on the web site? Who has them in stock?

LRB are not rifles. They are jewelry.

LRB with with a Sage stock would be banned as porn in some states.

Dude if I had an LRB, I wouldnt even shoot it, I would probably leave it on a rack on the middle of the living room wall like a Rembrandt.

Guys, it's a freaking M14 receiver....Until it gives the best BJ's and made me a sandwich every morning...I can't justify the price.

There's paying a little more for quality. But the prices of the LRB is like paying 3-4 times more.

Nice receiver though....I just have many more little mouths (in my gun safe) to feed.

The LRB is only about the receiver, and the receiver is about twice the cost of a cast receiver. If you were to build a M-14 with all new USGI parts on an Armscorp or a Springfield receiver, you're still looking at ~$1700 after gunsmithing fees and whatnot.

The commercial M1As are cheaper because of the use of cast op-rods, gas cylinders...

That LRB is a shooter! That's what they're best at is shooting! A funny thing happened to me when I took possession of it. All of the sudden the other rifles in my safe just seem to be taking up room in my safe. :D

I just ordered a Leupold Mk4 M1 3.5-10X40 for it. Maybe that'll draw attention away from the sling. ;)

Thank god for OLL, I almost caved in and bought one of these thumb eating monstrosities :)

Don't get me worng, the M14 is great, I'm just bitter because I'm too much of a wimp to hold one accurately offhand.

LRB makes quality product.

LMAO. I wouldnt say 3-4 times. Like mentioned above, your getting a quality receiver that is close to 2x's the price of all other receivers, and 95% of the other companys dont even come close in quality...even Springers M1A are not even as close to USGI spec as the LRBs. LRB complete rifles come with ALL USGI parts. Do that with any other M14/M1A receiver and your still looking at close to the same price. Well worth the price IMO.

When I get my LRB receiver im going to attach a chain to it and wear it around my neck.

no need to explain it to these guys. let them figure it out for themselves that LRB is the ultimate in fine M14 jewelry. I think they just want to make themselves feel good by trying to fool themselves into thinking their Springfield is as good as a LRB.

If it was my money and time, I'd skip the rear lug, spend the savings on ammo and shoot it a couple months earlier. The lug is only there to make the bedding last longer.

I can skim glass (repair the bedding) on an M1A in about 2hrs. This is something which you might need to do at about the same frequency that you'd replace barrels on a standard receiver at a cost of $2 in popsicle sticks and Devcon.

Removable magazines = no "M1 thumb"

Removable magazines = no "M1 thumb"

They've both got a bolt and a spring loaded oprod. The M14 bolt stop is nowhere near as secure as the M1 oprod latch. If getting your fingers mauled by an M14 was not a possibility, people wouldn't block the bolt open with a stripper clip when cleaning.
