A little help please.

1) Where can I find new M1A receivers for a project?

2) What should I expect to pay for a new receiver?

Thanks!

A little info for ya. Look on the back cover of the May 10 Shotgun News and you will see the Dealer Warehouse ad with the Armscorp Nat.'l Match M14 Receiver listed. That is the scarecest part to find (and most expensive).After that you're home free-almost. Excellent used mags can be had from Cole Distributing,on page 126 of that same issue of S.N. This is the route I took,plus going to various gun shows,"haggling" with folks and running into some really fantastic "deals" - being at the right place at the "right" time also helped,as some were more than willing to "unload" some M14 parts,as they didn't fit what the table was set-up to sell at the shows. Have not quite finished my "project",as some spare parts are needed,but I am in no hurry,and will bide my time to get a "deal". Good luck in your "project":2guns:

Check out Champions Choice http://www.champchoice.com/
This outfit caters to NM shooters, and is run by hard-core match shooters.
They list:
--- Springfield M1A Receiver $430
--- Springfield M1A Receiver, rear lugged $645
(this is also on p. 51 - 52 in their catalog, available online, but scanned, not interactive, at http://www.champchoice.com/catalog/index.p...res/page052.png)

I would use the standard receiver. I know of no difference between a standard and NM receiver, as it is the tolerance on several other components -- and the build quality -- than make a rifle an NM. That being said, if you want a receiver to say NM or M-21, you can get them from Armscorp. Not much quality difference between any of these, other than the printing. (But if you were to buy even a standard Armscorp M1A-equivalent in NJ, it would say M-21 on the receiver, since that is not on their banned list.)

K0RL Solid Billet M14 Receiver w/ rear lug (Hand guaged and inspected) Dealer $799.00 Retail $999.00
K0FRL Solid Billet M14 Receiver w/front & rear lug (Hand guaged and inspected) Dealer $999.00 Retail $1199.00

Personally, I would use the Springfield standard receiver. The real difference comes from who builds and fits it, not who made that parts, as long as they are in spec.

I would only use a Chi-Com receiver or a SA , Inc. receiver .

I bought the SA , Inc. rifle , but would have never paid the price , except for Clinton - Gore .

God Bless
