    Observations: by TonyBen

    This document is intended to illustrate the tools and techniques necessary to field strip and disassemble M14 rifle clones. Disassembly will cover everything except the trigger group disassembly, and small parts disassembly like the spindle valve in the gas cylinder and the cartridge clip guide on the receiver as well as the operating rod guide. These items rarely, if ever, need to be removed once installed by the factory or by a gunsmith.


    Collector's Comments and Feedback:

    1. The secret to creating and maintaining quality research data in the Milsurps Knowledge Libraryicon is you! This is your site and these MKLicon entries on various old milsurps are yours to add to, or change. The volunteers on the Advisory Panelicon can only do so much to vet and validate the information posted here, so please contribute as much as possible to help us present the most accurate and reliable data we can gather on these old milsurps. If you own a particular specimen of any current entry, then please send us pics of it, even though they may be duplicate views of pieces you already see here. In that way, we can build up multiple sets of pics for several milsurps of the same model, which will help in identifying markings and authenticity. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far, which is helping to make the Milsurps Collectors Forums a prominent site for serious collectors of all genres of old milsurp collectibles. .......
