Just as the title says, what manufacture of elevation pinions was used in H&R factory assembled M14s? I have only been able to find H&R marked garand pinions.

Thanks for the help.

The following companies made non-match USGI M14 rear sight elevation and windage knobs in the 1960s. The M14 elevation knob was marked with "M" to denote in calibration in meters. This is an item of ongoing research.
