View Full Version : M14 manufacturing

October 28, 2008, 22:32
The "M14 Receivers@low prices" reminded me of a couple of articles I copied from American Rifleman Magazines from 1961 and 1963. The first one reports on the M14 program with the 3 original manufacturers. The second one is a report on how TRW made them.

Thank you AZSteve57! I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of consolidating the images into two PDF files. That should make downloading easier, links below.

Do you mind if I share these on another forum?

Gunshack, no problem. I was looking for a place to upload a zip file of all the images but couldn't find one I liked. Good idea on the PDF files. Also, fine to share.
