i had my tables set up at our local gun show this weekend and a guy comes wandering by with m14 slung over his shoulder. he stops to inquire about new unissued gi mags and i direct him to him to our local surplus dealer. when he turned to leave i spotted the selector switch and stopped him. after many questions, he told me it was a law enforcement buy only, brand new unissued h and r select fire m14. after some coaxing he let me examine the rifle and sure enough it was. this rifle had no handling marks of any kind, no wear on any of the metal, all the stock stampings were amazingly clear and unmolested by handling. he stated it took about a year with many followup phone calls and mailings but evidently worth the wait. this guy admitted to being a swat team member in our bordering town and when he realized i was a m14 nut from hell, he opened up to more conversion. he would not give a price but did say that other members were in the process of ordering. he was in his late twenties and had no experience with the m14, hadnt even shot this one but had plans to do so. is anybody out there familiar with this program. these are absolutely brand new rifles from our government arsenals with a law enforcement only stipulation. if i had not seen this with my own eyes, i wouldnt have believed it. anybody out there with more info on this, holler back.
