    Traditional Winchester M14 build.

    I never get tired of messing with Winchester builds. May have something to do with CT and their original home here. Anyway, this one has seen the light before in different phases of putting her together. Today she accepted a NM modified flash suppressor with a smile. Mostly Winny parts including Win/Bula receiver as the icing on the cake.

      I have to ask as I carried this weapon in the early sixties. Is this the real deal (full auto) or a dummy? I posses a M1A which is a tack driver but not the full auto I carried back in the day. Where did you come up with the Winchester receiver?

        This is not full auto. The dummy kit is attached to the stock only for appearance. The receiver is a standard Bula receiver with just the heel from a real M14 aft of the rear sight attached. I too ws issued a couple of different Winchester M14s in the 60s. Oh the memories. At the time mine had the lock out button and not the switch.

            That's very nice. I have used a bunch of them from Fred's over the years.

ID:	30637 but no luck, it about 90% almost looks like an aftermarket M14 butt plate.

                Nice looking stock. Trouble with most of the birch is that the draw pressure sucked and there wasn't enough meat for a good bedding job.

                  Your correct about the bedding except the guy that buys a tiger stripe stock is not going to bed it or do anything else besides show it off ! Someone is even making
                  a tiger stripe handguard now

                    I understand that completely. I do have a bunch of nice striped stock, both birch and some to die for walnut from Fred's years ago. With 60 plus M14s in the collection I have a pretty good cross section of stocks than have been available. Always looking for nice ones. I keep over a dozen stocks in the shop for future builds. And I don't sell any of them. Whatta Hobby!
