Thanks for the thumbs up. Nat Ord.did the conversion, an M1 receiver with Win. serial numbers was used and rechambered to .308 Win..and all the other parts are SA. Anyone know what it may be worth....just wondering?GI7
I would say $400-500 .
National Ordnance is not held in very high reguard in the Garand community.
I would say to check it over real well to see if it is 2 pieces of scrap receiver welded back together. Lots of Nat Ord rifles were made this way.
Smith is talking about remaking the M14K. It uses a completely different gas system than that of the Garand. I heard through the grapevine that LaFrance Specialties might even start remaking the M14K. That would be cool to have one of each.
Inherited what I thought was an M14/M1A rifle and was shopping for a new stock. I then realized the gas assembly was all wrong - then the research began. H&R bolt all the rest SA parts with the receiver an un welded SA that is difficult to make out, but does have The Natl Ord .308 stamped on the left side. All this to ask, should I be concerned with bullet type and powder loads like the M1 Garand?
