I find my self amazed at the number of bags of parts that go into an assembly. This morning I was working on some Bula trigger housings and thought folks might just like to see the number of bags of parts it takes to make them work. As many times as I haul parts out of the bins, it never fails to amaze. And this was just for two trigger groups. Then I have to remember to reorder so the bins stay full.

The tolerances are tight, or sloppy? Never used Bula housings.

It amazes me that all those little parts, with tight tolerances managed to survive in the horrid environments that our boys used them in. And the Garand just doesn't work without grease that attracts and holds junk in it.

Bula parts are made to the center of USGI spec. Way better than the originals that could vary all over the place. Perhaps that is why they are a current govt. supplier of replacement parts for the M-14.

First time I took one apart was in boot camp in early 1966. I was sure someone threw in some extra parts just to see what would happen.
