GWLA-Winchester 'Forum Member Tribute'


You are voting for M14 of the 4th quarter –November 2022!

The top two entries are eligible for M14 of the YEAR immediately following, as well as a drawing to pick from the from the MuppetMeat sausage pile, which includes coffee mugs and other random goodies TBD. SO EXCITING.

We have a SUPER uber duber group this quarter. You may only vote once. I tried to make this election more realistic, but you guys just won't have it.

Take your time, peruse the albums or fancy formatted threads, let your buttons get pushed, root for your favorites, ask questions, tell stories about how a rifle reminded you that time in banned camp, or band camp, and above all, don't take it too seriously....


If you vote, and bump the thread with "I voted", and somebody reminds me, all thread participants can guess a number and we can have a drawing from something in the yet as unclaimed mug pile. But you'll have to remind me, most likely, and it's never too late, until it's too late.

Last quarter of the year, top two qualify for M14 of the year!

The Ted Brown BEAR lug is narrowly in the lead by 1 vote!

'Tribute' is on the heels one vote back, and 'The Recycler' right behind, but with the right group of friends, ANY of the contenders still have a shot.

One of the prizes available to the winner of M14 OF THE YEAR, from the 'parts pile', which the top two finishers of each M14OTQ automatically enter, is this knife made by my friend Dave Broughton, former Wyoming (tourist) train robber, now retired in Alabama making art and rebuilding old knives, or building new from blanks.

The epoxy on the edges of wood handle scales of this one could use a little touch up, which I'm happy to do myself if the winner is willing to risk it, or it could be a 'bonding' moment for the winner making it just a little more their own.

It;s a full tang handy, sturdy blade that feels surprisingly natural in the hand given its unique shape.

Congratulations to @Pappy1600 for the win with GWLA 'Forum Tribute' and @valken for Ted Brown Rear Lug Build as runner up!

Please PM me for coffee mug selections, and you are both in the M14 of the year 2022 running!

I will get that post up and running, hopefully today. If you need a reminder on mug availability, if you've seen it before, you can have it.

Here are a few examples.... I should get around to putting everything in one album or something organized-like...

Drinkware Tableware Liquid Cup Fluid


There are versions with different rifles, a 'Standard', a 'Scoped Scout', a 'Blackfeather', and thanks to @thehun06, a Scoped and Suppressed Sage EBR. If I don't have what you want on hand, I'll see about getting it made :)

Get ready! Set, FOR THE YEAR!
