    De-milled Armscorp M14 Receiver

    This is interesting.......a de-milled Armscorp M14 receiver. Being that it's been de-milled in what appears to be the same fashion as typical USGI receivers it leads me to believe this receiver was likely in the government inventory.......which begs the question: Did the government buy Armscorp receivers for use by the military?

    I don't believe Armscorp ever had a government military contract for M14 receivers or rifles.

      Me neither......but why would this receiver be demilled in this fashion? Why would it be demilled at all?? The person running the auction has another half for sale as well---a USGI HRA.

      Things that make you go, "hmmm"

        Yeah I agree, I saw this before. Demilled does mean demilitarized, but it also means destroying a receiver enough to satisfy batfe requirements that it is no longer a functional firearm. My best guess is it had some front end damage from someone performing milling operations on the front ring and damaged it, or it might have been so out of spec it was unusable, but those are just guesses, I have no facts for that. But there had to be something mechanically/demensionally wrong with it for someone to cut it and get rid of it legally.

          I would buy one if it was a saw cut rear, I've been looking for a near new rear half for my desk for display.

            Well the Armscorp logo look a lot like a TRW, maybe someone traded it for a TRW? the A prefix ser number, I think was forged and machined at Smith Ent and ser numbered at Armscorp?

              These may have been partial complete actions that were demilled when they went out of buisness. may have even been siezed items.
