GI parts question

1808 Views 24 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  highlandfarmer
So, I frequently see people looking for hra, winchester, etc specifically for parts.

Is this because people want consistent manufacturers for builds for collector reasons like wanting consistency in a build, or scarcity leading to value?

Or do people feel that there are specific differences in quality across the different manufacturers?

One advantage TRW had was use of coining dies to even further refine the same forging others were using as is. Same with their bolts .The top center and sides were forged done ,requiring no machining.
They were the only company to use solid one piece op rod ,and only maker to refine the receiver left and right lugs.
What does al that matter ? Just a slight edge in grain orientation making a slightly stronger finished part.

Especially their op rods.
So..does that mean I should save all the SA parts and use up all the TRWs and Winchesters first?
