What this is .....

Was submitted and posted across the street as well ...

Can't say that I have ever seen one like this before but it appears to be cast or it could be just the grain in the foto. Some have said that this possibly could be a fake receiver of some sort ...

Any ideas ...

Got no idea

Now don't hold me to this, but seems I read somewhere that at one time you could order a receiver with your inecials on it.

is it possible that this is an unfinished receiver in a display or museum? the way the cloth is done underneath is my clue?

Hawk,

Man that should be in a museum, it looks like someone took hammer and chisel to make that or used a bad mold. 8O

I think it still looks like an air gun or an air soft gun...

Man, if its real...

Hi Hawk,

I just got back up! It took some grinding with the local cable company (Time Warner) but, I finally got them to see the light... 8O

My digital modem went bad (in the middle of a Video Conference) and I had to go through hoops to get the local company to understand that the problem was their equipment (digital modem) and NOT my network. :x :cry:

Because I rarely use my internal analog modem, when I tried to use it as a backup, it was "toast"... The only way to maintain some communications was to take out the "trusty" old laptop (over 20,000 miles of travel in the old gal) and use its modem... At 28.8 Kbps it was no ways fast but at least it got the job done... :lol:

I guess, "Alls Well that Ends Well", and I am up and operating again. Gee, what a time to go down...

Aloha,

Tom O.

It's a Japanese made highly realistic non-firing replica M14, the particular one in the picture is made by a company called HobbyFix, currently out of production, however another Japanese company Hudson also makes a M14 non-firing replica, and it is currently in production (see links below). They also have blank firing versions available.

Hudson also produces highly realistic replica guns such as the M1 Thompson SMG, M1 Garand, AK47, and etc.

Go here to see more replica M14http://www.wargameclub.com/cgi-bin/cart/shopper.cgi?itm_items_HS-RG-M14

and herehttp://www.wargameclub.com/cgi-bin/cart/shopper.cgi?itm_items_TC-RG-M14

and Hudson website (in japanese)http://www.hudson-mfg.com/default/products/01/index.htm#02

Hope this clears up some confusion

Darkest2000, I don't see where in the links that you've supplied that shows the receiver as being like the one in the original post of this thread.....how did you come with this conclusion?

I'm the one that submitted this picture and I asked sixtgunr to post it, meanwhile I was looking for more information about it and that was what I found out.

the above post was from me, forgot to login

also the links that I supplied shows the picture of a different replica M14 from a different company then the one in the original post.

I'll try and see if I can find links that has information about the actual hobbyfix made M14 replica.

Wow, for a replica, it looks good from afar. Hey, Hawk, looks like they used wood similar to yours... but NO Tigerstripe... :lol:

Well, everyone, who was closest on their guess?

Aloha,
