  1. The M14
    Bought a preban M1A , it’s a low 71,000 serial range after cleaning it I noticed very weird markings on the barrel. The only marking I can clearly make out is Geneseo IL with a ouch mark. I can’t make out what all these other stamp over stamps are. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, New to the platform and new to the forum here. I was wondering whether anyone here with has 6.5 has run a shorter barrel than the standard 22". I prefer shorter barrels for maneuverability--both in terms of weight and getting through brush, etc., so I'm considering cutting my M1A in 6.5...
  3. The M14
    Anyone else have one of these marks in their barrel? I finally got my rifle complete, took it out to the range and got a few rounds through her. This is the problem child rifle that I'm sure some of you have seen me post before. Gave it a quick cleaning, and got a patch stuck in the bore. I...

    I have an M1A loaded that needs to have its barrel replaced. I was hoping to switch to a scout-type shorter barrel. Would I have to buy a medium contour barrel? Or would the normal ones work?
  7. The M14
    Picked up an M1a. Receiver has an early 90's serial. I am trying to identify the barrel. Any help would e appreciated! Thanks!

    What is not clear is if heavy contour needs a different oprod guide. If I bought a Krieger heavy bbl, would it come with a proper guide?
  9. The M14
    Hi, I would like to know EXACTLY what to do when cleaning the barrel of an M1A. I plan on buying a 25" Dewey rod with a guide, Hoppes solvent, a bronze .30 cal brush, 2" round patches,and stripper clips to hold the bolt back. What I don't understand is what order to do things in when it comes...
