You may have missed my tease thread on this build which was actually started as a tease for two builds that turned into a tease for three builds. Here is a link to that thread if you missed it. Tease for USMC DMR and Navy SSR Builds | M14 Forum . This all started back in December of 2020 when Crazynoto posted a thread selling his Navy SSR kit.

I worked a deal with Crazynoto for a payment plan and had it paid off by March of 2021. The kit included an issued tan stock, original Crane contract heavy barrel, NM reamed flash hider, a Navy unitized gas system, and an original scope mount. I also had him shorten and paint a handguard to match the stock although cleaner in appearance.

I already had a couple M14 parts I had purchased off the forum so started looking for what I did not already have to complete this build. By September 2021 I had managed to gather everything I needed and as shown in the tease thread linked above I packed it up along with the USMC DMR and shipped both kits off the Forceman for him to do the build.

Here is a listing of what makes up this rifle and where they came from:USGI NM reamed flash hider – part of Kit from Crazynoto (M14F)
