  1. Garand to M14?

    Steel and Wood
    I just inherited a Springfield Armory garand receiver. Can this receiver be used to build an M14/M1A type rifle or do I need a genuine M1A receiver. If I can use this for a build, will it need any machining? I want to build a scout type m1A style rifle. 16 inch barrel, scout scope, etc.
