Now would be the best time to pull out your dis-assembly manual, and get familiar with your rifle. Good time to do a thorough cleaning, inspect the parts and record/photo any parts with numbers. If you bought the rifle new, my guess is that most of the "parts" will be USGI. Post the pics/data here for ID of the parts. Pics really help because some of the parts are not numbered. This would include the trigger guard and flash suppressor. dozierMy Springfield has a build date of 3/1994 with bayonet lug. How much USGI components can I expect to have and how would I find out?
You done good buddy,OK fellas, here goes:
Bolt - TRW ZA 7790186
Trigger housing - 7267030
Barrel - Winchester 7790190 - May - 61 - 10A -
Barrel closest to receiver - GENESE - 14
Op Rod - 7267064
Rear sight - Meters
Gas cylinder - no markings
So, What do I have and are there any other parts with numbers? Did I do good on this? By the way, it is unfired with a S/N of 079265.
Why is the rifle not marked in any way either .308 or 7.62? Headspace according to the tag is 1.0632.
Only one correction ripsaw, K 8 marked Safeties are KMT, Killeen Machine and Tool Co. they are frequently found on Winchester Trigger Groups, but also found on others, KMT also made Magazines and Spring Guides which are found on GI M14s!Other parts marked that will be G.I.
Safety- sometimes on the left side between the outside wall of the trigger group where you must disassemble to see, and sometimes on the right side and can barely see when hammer is moved. Example: K over an 8 is Winchester, my TRW safety is marked as such,...... or some have a single S, forgot the manufacturer but is G.I.
Rear Sight base on some.
Pursuant to Federal Law, all firearms must be marked for caliber, it is on there somewhere, I would guess the barrel, just hard to see.
See you are doing better by doing a little more digging. Both parts are orig USGI. I believe your windage knob in the following post is USGI also. dozierTrigger housing does have the letters TRW, OP rode says 'HR'. Guess I'll have to remove the rear sight some day to see what markings there might be other than a large 'M'. I've looked and looked but will look some more for the caliber markings. But hey, thanks a bunch.
