Hi all,

I had a long talk with Ron of Smith Enterprise today. As I was talking to him about building my LRB into a Bush Rifle he told me about a few new products he's selling that were being used by the U.S. Navy.

The first is a "Direct connect Vortex Flash Hider" $75.00 . Since I live in "The Peoples Republic of" I'll have to pass on that one until I can effect an escape from here :cry: .

The other is a "M-14 H&K Type Front Sight" for a Bush/Scout rifle. It is attached to the Gas Cylinder Lock and also goes for $75.00. I don't think he has pictures of them on his site yet, so I'm going on Ron's description to have him install one on my LRB M-14 Bush 8) . Building a new rifle is better than Christmas :D .

Oh! Almost forgot the most important part of our conversation..... He stated that once the Iraq thing winds down and he has time He's going to build a Limited Run of 100 Forged M-14 Receivers 8O . It will be first come first serve and he's taking Pre-orders by E mail only. He's storing them in a data base. I'm #1 :wink: . He says the price will be around $1,000.00

Hope I got it all correct? Maybe now would be a good time to enter a disclaimer??

When I talked to Bill today he said they just got done parking and the trigger group was ready and the LRB #1 rifle should be completed by Friday :p
Well that does it. I am holdin Msgtmaze acountable. There is a dead angel on the floor and an email to Ron :twisted: But I am sure Msgtmaze will just plead the 5th :lol: sssssssssshh I asked for the lowest # possible.
My reply was much simpler "Thanks, we will keep this on file"
Talked to Ron Smith today part II

I finally was able to talk with Ron not Bill. You guys must be slacking since i got through :lol: I finaly asked him about my reciever and he said no problems with it at all. Then he said your rifle is one beauty Functions flawlessly and they took extra care with it. Man am I really stoked. You guys that know metal correct me I am takeing a shot at this from what Ron wanted me to get out there. He is making a NM rear site out wire heated EDM Billet from 4140 steel. Just like on the original M14 and this hasnt been done Since 1963. Also scopes rings with 1" inserts made the same way. Of course just like the recievers its not cheap but will be high quality. There I have said. WARNING LABLE: Please dont flame the messanger. :lol:
Too late it shipped yesterday. Sorry Azski :cry:
