You can also just order the Action#1 from LRB, and shop around for some USGI parts to finish it off. My friend finished his for only $2100.

The Medium Match is like $3000. And it has all the bells and whistles I want.

If you really want to go all the way, then Fulton has got all your EBR, EMR and Mk14 needs covered. Yikes, but they are pretty.

This is the first time I've posted pics of my two. The top one is the sa inc loaded 110xxx serial range. The bottom is the LRB 13xx serial range that Ted Brown installed the Kreiger heavy match barrel and head spaced a TRW bolt. I did everything else.

both rifle serial numbers are in Different books.

Fulton has about half the wait time as LBR, are they of comparable quality? Prices are similar.

Fulton's receivers are not anywhere near in quality as LRB's receivers. LRB's receivers are the best on the market right now. They are as close to the original M14 as you can get them.

Lol, He did whine about it but he was living a few doors down from a gunsmith so it wasn't too big a deal.

That is sexy! How hard are M14/ M1a to build from a receiver?

Oh looky, LRB does sell barrelled actions as well.

I own a Fulton Armory FA14 and have never held a LRB, I would personally like to compare sometime.

Getting the barrel in the receiver is the hardest part, because if you don't get it straight, your sights will be canted. An AR, on the other hand, has a little leeway because you just need to get the gas block on straight, rather than the whole barrel.

You need barrel vice, receiver wrench, levels, headspace gauges. Need to lap the bolt for headspace and takes some careful assembly.
It is not really difficult but not slap together build. Not for someone who hasnt built other simiar rifles, Garands, etc

Not very hard at all. Barreled action + bolt already done. Flat tip screw driver, 3/8 box wrench, castle nut wrench (you'll need to buy it from Fulton, sa inc, brownells), hammers and a set of punches plus Allen wrench for front sight. That's all of the tools that I used.

If you get the barreled action 2 you'll just need is the trigger group and a complete stock.

If you live in the bay area I'll offer my help if you do plan on building the rifle from with a barreled action.

Yes it needs to be timed right he's talking about the barrel and bolt all ready installed.l to the receiver

I am sorry what?! 2200$ for a MA9822CA? I bought that exact model over a year for 1650$ at Buds. Rifle arrived in prestine condition, and the SN# matches my birthday. Friggin sweet.

I am saving up for a Scout Model Next.

^True but for a Blackfeather RS or Juggernaut bullpup it would work just fine.

I have a M1A barrel question.
I recently bought a M1A off of GunBroker, The rifle was advertised as an M1A Standard, however when I was changing stocks, I noticed the barrel was way too thick to be a standard.
Can someone tell me what barrel this is?
Thanks.

That looks to be a heavy weight by the looks of the op rod guide. What markings are on the barrel?

I have a Springfield Supermatch and a homebuilt Socom on a Fulton Armory receiver. I like my M1A's. Don't sweat the price. It will appreciate.

I have the scout. Very fun rifle. One thing to know though is that outside extreme match work, the M1 series isn't a 1 MOA rifle platform. On a good day it is more like 2-4. I'm thinking about going for an AR-10. Just can't decide if I want both or if I want to sell the M1A. Probably want to have both. m14forum will be your friend.

I think I paid around $2500 for my LRB Tanker. Was definitely worth it over the Springfield. I had SA and the thing looked like it was put together by a couple winos. Even the opp rod contact with the piston was off. It had about 70% contact. Was all crooked. Had fte issues with boxed factory ammo too. True to form, Springfield got it running right but they didn't true the opp rod engagement. You should get better for your money when you're spending that much imo.

I don't think the extra inch one can get out of an AR-10 is worth giving up the superior reliability associated with the M14 pattern rifle. The AR is just as reliable under most conditions but enjoys nowhere near the reputation Mr. Garand's creation does and I'll go a little further by saying Stoner couldn't hold that Canuck's jock!!

My review is posted HERE ... I no longer own a Rogue.


If I were going to have only one M14 it would be the 18" Bush/Scout/MK14.

I currently have 3; a 16.25" in a Blackfeather "RS", a standard in Walnut and a medium heavy national match in a SAGE EBR.




Croc's gunshop on Gunbroker is an excellent source for barreled actions or complete rifles.

Agreed, Fulton and Springfield receivers seem to be in the same league.

The forged Norinco and Poly Tech receivers are closer to original GI M14 dimensional specs than LRB as are the new bar stock receivers from Smith Enterprise.

Sorry, those prices are terrible. Very terrible. Pre-panic loaded could be had for $1,500 all day long. $1,299 for a standard. I built a M25 LRB with a USGI build kit for $2,300.

Be patient, watch the classified here and on M14forums.com and you will find a great rifle. Also, get the loaded. Better barrel, better trigger, better sights. Worth the $200 extra.

standard OD 1,800
standard (loaded)? or just with a national match barrel wood stock 2,300

rounding up on the prices.

the salesman i was talking to said the NM barrel is worth the extra money.

thanks guys

The Equipment Exchange on AR15.com is a great place to shop for a pre-owned M14/M1A.
