C Marked Safety

Just aquired another M14 trigger group. Finish looks better than the one that I had put into my LRB, so I decided to switch. The new one is supposedly a new trigger group removed from an unissued & demilled HRA M14. Everything looks great & the finish matches my LRB perfectly, where the older one was much lighter. Everything seems to be marked as an HRA trigger group, but the safety is marked with a C. Is this correct for an HRA? I'm sure that info is here somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it in my searches. Also, the new trigger looks a bit thinner than the old one. Should it be? Were there different trigger contours? Any reason, or just different makers?

Noob still learning!

To answer your question would it be correct No.
You would need and HRA(Garand) would be acceptable or H&R marked safety
and as stated above Probably an IHC that is very worn off we would need a picture to be more sure

Here is a pic of the trigger group he is talking about.

Isn't the safety marked HRA ? The "C" is probally just a batch number, or facility.

BLACKTAIL 8541.....you know, I didn't notice the C until I had the trigger group installed in the rifle. Didn't look that close before i put it in, and forgot about the photos! I see it has HRA now. DUH! Just wondered about the C. Oh well, was just curious.

To update....this trigger group is an all Harrington Richardson assembly. No worn parts & I'm sure it was indeed pulled from an unissued rifle, or dang close to it. Really nice & perfectly matches all the other new USGI parts on my rifle. The C was noticed after installation of the trigger group, as it is on the outside. It is plainly stamped HRA above the C, out of sight when installed. I had a "duh" moment....should have looked closer, but didn't want to pull the trigger group out again un-neccessarily.
