Bill, I have been looking around for any posts on the significance of Winchesters use of this particular number to identify some of their manufactured M14 parts. It seems that there must be some significance and/or interesting story behind this. Why did they do this?

Thanks for the information different! You are right in that I will be interested in your new release. I'll take a rainy day to read it all. I appreciate all the great information-usually you need to pay for this kind of thing... =D>

Different is correct. What I will add is that when the M14 contracts were being fulfilled, the manufacturer ID was called Federal Supply Code for Manufacturers or FSCM's. After 1974 the existing FSCM's were merged with newly created codes and from then on they have been refered to as CAGE codes.

Recommend you read about this about the numbers .
