Michael, If the rifle is a NM Model, the heel of the receiver will be marked US Rifle M14mm. Otherwise, you will have just paid more for it than a standard grade and perhaps received a piece of paper stating it is a NM rifle. Also, it should be more accurate than the standard grades. Art
The loaded will have a NM .308 marked barrel also. Both will have NM 0.062 front sight and tuned trigger. Glass bedding, hooded rear sight, unitized gas cylinder, NM oprod spring guide are the major differences.
