My winchester





Winchester, all original parts, made in circa october 1961.
Full auto lug has been removed so that this rifle is now into european civil standards.

Does anybody know what those electric pen markings mean on receiver?

The electropenciled "O" markings signify depot level overhaul by the U. S. Marine Corps in either Barstow, California or Albany, Georgia.

Re: Picture thread?

There is also some other electropenciled marking which does not show so clearly in that receiver picture " O - 69 ". Also last four serial numbers have been electropenciled to the bolt.

So if I can count atleast three " O " markings in this rifle, what kind of depot level that mean?
(Clearly I can see myself that this rifle has seen some long service life before my ownership.)
I know that this rifle came here from Germany because of German .cip safety proof inspection marks, but how dit it end to free market in germany ? Maybe because of low debot level it was left behind ? (Only guessing)

Re: Picture thread?

sikke, the "O-69" marking means the rifle was overhauled by the U. S. Marine Corps in 1969. The Marine Corps rebuilt M14 rifles at their logistics bases in Barstow, California or Albany, Georgia. Back then, those bases were called Depot of Supply. Every time I drive to southern California I drive by the Barstow base. FWIW

Depending on the time period, there were four or five levels of maintenance support for the M14 rifle:

1 - operator
2 - organization
3 - direct support
4 - general support
5 - depot

Depot level maintenance items, including rebuilds, have been performed at the two Marine Corps bases mentioned above, Rock Island Arsenal, Anniston Army Depot, Naval Surface Warfare Center - Crane, and others. Two of the maintenance levels were consolidated in the late 1960s if I recall correctly but Bill Ricca would know for sure.

The last four digits of the serial number on the bolt means the rifle was match tuned at some point. When a military armorer built a M14 for competition shooting, he would electropencil the last four digits of the receiver serial number on to the bolt and trigger housing. That way, the correct bolt and firing mechanism would go back into the rifle during assembly. Us civilians usually work on one M14/M1A at a time. The military armorers worked in a shop filled with M14 rifles.

I talk about M14 rifles in Germany in the Online Edition of M14 Rifle History and Development at http://www.imageseek.com/m1a It's free for you to download for your personal use. Anyway, a few USGI M14 rifles were exported from Israel to Germany in 1988 and 1989. My hunch is that your rifle is one of those.

Re: Picture thread?

Allright.
Thanks different! You have very accurate online book.
So most probably this one came from israel even that I think that it was exported late 90īs not 80īs.

Itīs well used but still fine shooter grade rifle and I love it. Only thing I am a bit worried is that one of these days my M14 might just broke and there is not much to do because there is no spare parts available in europe. Nowadays itīs allmost impossible to buy any kind of spareparts from US because of your tight export rules for military weapons. Also this rifle would need gunsmith that understand this rifleīs soul. There is hardly anyone..

Re: Picture thread?

Have you seen the new VIRON stock for the M14/M1A.

How many people have problems with their groups shifting after they fire several rounds close together? By that I mean your Zero seams to shift when the barrel gets hot.

I read the SAGE review and it sounds like they have not had much experience
shooting the modernized platform. They found problems/issues that just don't exist.

Re: Picture thread?

I'm assuming you are referring to the barrel warping after several shots were fired in a short period of time as the problem that doesn't exist. This is a common problem not limited to the M1A in the SAGE stock. Why do you think there is so much talk about Cryo treating the barrel to stop the warping. from residual stress from the manufacturing process. Restricting the barrel from expanding or stretching from the drag of the bullet as it travels down the bore at supersonic speeds creates stress in it's self. If it can't expand or stretch it will flex between the receiver and the point at which it is restricted. Obviously the thicker the barrel wall the less effected it will be. I don't mean to be argumentative but I did the tests and have had a Quite a bit of experience with a number of the new Platforms. I hope you haven't experienced these problems. It is quite frustrating but I and a good number of friends and family have. Even with Ar's, Bolt actions, as well as M1A's. So have quite a few of our customers. For some the problem is minor and only shows up after quite a few rounds are fired in a relatively short period of time. For others it is more severe and show up rather quickly. Some may not experience much at all. My brother has a Bushmaster AR 10 which we shot after our last test with the 6.5 Grendal with a 16" Heavy barrel which show very little shift in the ZERO in 20 rounds of South African surplus. The lighter and longer the barrel the more likely you will experience this problem. Fortunately I no longer have to have to go to a Heavy barrel to fix it![img][img][img][/img][/img][/img][attachment=0:27x1uj1j]Proto Type Handguard resized.JPG[/attachment:27x1uj1j]
