Hello from the dry side of the Evergreen State, i.e., in the rain shadow east of the Cascade Mountains).

My main interest is in collecting military surplus rifles, so I'm a long time member of Gunboards, The SKS Files, and some other collector oriented forums. In my American collection, I have a Krag, 1903s, M1 Garands, M1 carbines, a Johnson and a couple of ARs.

It seems I'm overdue to add a semiauto version of an M-14. So I'm here to browse about and seek out knowledge on what manufacturers/builders are good and "ungood".

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum from Roswell, GA......

I spent 12.5 years in Sammamish/Issaquah - WA - but I am a southern boy at heart and had to come back home!

Ain't they got no reglar names in Washinton that you can actually say without gettin' yore tongue tied?? GI1
LOL, lots of towns with tribal names here. I live near the Swinomish Res here. Pronounced as Swino-mish. Newcomers want to say Swin-no-mish. Lots of funny names here. Even Seattle where I was born is derived from the name of an Indian Chief, Sealth.

Welcome from Oregon. Stick around and glean info then get your M-14. You really need one for your collection.

You said a mouthful. You may not realize just how overdue that you are. Since the I-1639 law went into effect on the 1st of July its a whole new ballgame for gun purchasers of any semiautomatic rifle. Before finalizing the purchase of your M14/M1A you will be additionally thrilled by: the process of obtaining your semiautomatic assault weapon safety course and the certification that goes with it. And the department of licensing form which you will fill out along with the federal 4473 form. You will thereby register your new M14/M1A with the state of Washington prior to taking possession of your new firearm. Just for the sake of enlightening out of staters this registration process has been in effect for all handgun purchases since the initiative (a couple or so years ago) requiring background checks for all firearms sales in the state of Washington I believe.

I recently purchased a CZ P07 tactical suppressor ready pistol and was horrified to find this particular DOL form in front of me to complete along with the other stuff. It still makes me uneasy knowing that every other pistol purchase I ever make in this state will be thusly recorded by state and local entities. Its a pathetic state of affairs people. Mind your local politics, sometimes even more impactful on the personal level than federal legislation.
