First, congrats again on getting that receiver. I confess much jealousy. (In fact, I think I had dream about that receiver when Ted first showed on the forum back in 2020...its just such a unique piece).I am also hoping that may be you guys can help me decide which built to go for?
I'm surprised that some folks on this forum don't know that SA and TRW made 'NM' marked rifles in 1962-64. The heel on Tarnel’s receiver was one was of the 4,874 National Match M14s that TRW made in 1964. It was the final order for NM M14s. (The rear lug was added later by a service team).I didn't know TRW made a NM receiver. No idea.
Tarnel,Honestly, I haven't decided yet.
But I'll start with the easy to find parts like the bolt, op rod, trigger (all nos TRW's) if I can find them?
