Planting seed for this years M14 crop.

Just opened a bunch of buttplates fresh from Hawk's rehabilitation center to use as seed for this years M14s. They do seem to grow well in this area.



Recent harvests have been exceptional.

Always said, you can't have too many, but WOW, just WOW! And looking to build quite a few more, it seems. May I ask, do you build any other type rifles?

Just M14s. I have plenty of other rifles that I monkey around with but not complete builds like these.

That's cool. I bet you are an expert on them, for sure. I only have one, built as a National Match, by Bruce Dow on an Armscorp receiver. It is nice, but not a beautiful as some of yours.

Not an expert on anything, but I do have fun.
