The trigger housing they have for $65 is stamped "USA".
I agree, I will keep my money until they give more info on where the parts are made, material they are made from, and other specs are posted on the site. I will say it is a good thing to have another option, but I want more details first.

All of our parts are made here in America in our factory.

Big blue letters in the opening paragraph of the page I posted above.

I'm hoping someone has some factual information about their products. I find it difficult to believe that someone is cranking out US made M14 parts and this forum doesn't know about it. If you are going to search GunBroker for TRW Receivers, try actually typing in "TRW Receiver."

TRW does not use that logo anymore, so it could be old enough that it was no longer trademarked. I'm no trademark lawyer, but I think you need to actively protect a trademark, or it goes into the public domain at some point.

That said, I only saw a side view of the receiver, no heel mark in the shot, so maybe these guys are acting as a reseller for someone else's receivers, rather than making their own. If they were a new producer, you'd believe that the M14 forum would have gotten a whiff of it at some point.

The 2 on GunBroker show TRW logos on the heelmark. One is a plain receiver, the other is an IDF style build.

They should send one to one of the TRUSTED m14 armorers/smiths we all know and trust so well. I would be much more likely to buy from them then. I hope they turn out to be a good company and produce good in spec parts.

I looked at a couple of pictures on their parts page. Most look like new unmarked production. The elevation pinion is clearly a WCE, but they want $95 for it so it just might be so.

Hopefully, someone here lives near Naples. RNGR2
