    Early 1961 Training Aids for the M14 Rifle

    I found some large size M14icon Training Aids that were dated 1961. Note the early stock with
    the M1 rifle butt plate and the slotted handguard on the bipod version

    M14 clones

    I used an M1Aicon receiver to install a SA Jan 1960 M14 barrel and any ealy parts I could find (like the stud in the trigger guard). Stock is early original

    Those stocks used to be around, were not that hard to find... then they just disappeared.

    In Basic (1967) we had a meet and greet with the M14A1. It had the fold up butt plate, bipod, regular slotted synthetic handguard and was full automatic. No one, including me could shoot it well. Tom

    A friend described a trick they used to do: stand at attention with the rifle held at your hip; lean forward until you lost your balance and were about to fall on your face; pull the trigger; the rifle stood you right back up. Nutty GIs

    I had a walnut stock I bought when I wandered into Numrich back in about 1989. It was hard done and needed love to restore, haven't seen many since.

    Numrich

    Ah, Numrich... back in the day I talked myself into their warehouse of parts, found a stack of Garandicon bins about 8' high and 10' long. Reached into the first bin and pulled out a handful of bolts, three were Gas Trap! A stack of maybe 50 solid butt plates glued together with dried cosmolineicon, I bought three at $1 each, left the rest. The bottom of the sight pinion bin was littered with flush nuts, maybe 50... I took 5. They had no idea what to charge so just threw them in free
