My Garand bug has now given way to the M-14 bug. My latest addition is all TRW with a Fulton Armory receiver. GI1
I'm not an expert, but I think the theory behind TRW supremacy is that they manufacture automotive/aircraft parts primarily, and their machining equipment supposedly produced a more precise product. I have my All TRW rifle and Winchester and H&R parts kits that I'll be building on in the future, and all the parts look just as good to me, I think you'd have to use calipers to notice the difference? the only part I know is probably really better is the Op Rod, which is a solid 1 peice forging, WRA,SA and HR all used a 2 piece/welded Op Rod, the only other military contracter to produce a 1 piece Op Rod was SAK I believe.hey, i know TRW M14s were the best but what was the reason for that? the only thing ive heard is that their op rod was made out of one piece and that their bolts were better.
NICE LOOKING RIFLE BY THE WAY! LOOKS SOLID.GI6
