Greetings. New-join here from Arizona. I am a USMC vet (late 80’s early 90’s) and have enjoyed shooting sports most of my life. I’m a husband of one and father of three age 12,10, and 8 (all three are shooters).

I am new to the M14/M1A world – have drooled over them for years – but finally got one. It was advertised as a “NIB” “Loaded” model. When inspected appeared to be never fired and only slightly molested loaded SA commercial unit from about 3 years ago. The previous owner was “building a NM unit.” So – it is the standard loaded model with the addition of the hooded rear sight, a NM style spring guide and the wood stock (composite came in a box with it – and has gone back on so as to not beat up the beautiful fresh wood one while I sort things out). I drug it down to Phil Arrington when I could not get the gas cylinder plug out and did not want to do what I normally would do to a stuck bolt (start heating, cutting or bending things)… I had him true up the trigger and mod the rear site so that it seats properly. I am really enjoying this rifle and am looking forward to some casual participation in local service rifle match stuff (I am building a black gun for my 12 year old to shoot SR competition as well).

Looking forward to plugging in here and learning something from this crew. Perhaps someday I’ll even become useful.
