No problem Big Bore Lover, you were willing to go the extra $! Does anyone know when or what serial number range Armscorp changed the dimensions of their receiver to please Fulton Armory.

I have a couple in the 17,XXX range and they are harder to build rifles with than the 10,500 number receiver. The oprod lugway is much smaller requiring reducing of the oprod lug. Also, the cutout for the oprod spring guide is longer and this makes magazine insertion and removal harder. Just wish I could find another one in the 10,XXX serial range for sale!

I can now confirm that Armscorp did in fact create a custom numbered receiver for my local dealer. He paid an extra $50 to have them make one up with the same number as his Springfield Armory M14. They did place an "A" prior to the number though.

Thank you, Sir! That will make the first edition of M14 Rifle History and Development. The book manuscript is about done.

When I ordered my rifle, a rack grade, they said they weren't built until ordered.. I had an FFL back then, best I remember it took about a month to get it.. There was I think a 50 dollar additional charge if you wanted all matching parts, I didn't specify that.. but most if not all parts are H&R,, and all looked new unissued.. This was back when you got ALL GI parts.. With a scope and Federal Gold Medal Match, I have shot quite a few 1 1/2'' groups and a couple that were 1", even shot a 1 9/16" open sight group once, and now I wear bifocals... It doesn't like Lake City match though, and my handloads won't quite do as well as the factory Fed stuff, I have been extremely pleased with it .. At the time there was a magazine article that they sent a reprint of in their catalog, that showed their rack grade rifle would shoot with or better than Springfield Armory's match grade, That is why I chose it and I have never been sorry.. its only had about 400 rounds through it .. the serial no. is A00391X, I recieved it on 4-17-89, its in a factory tiger stripe GI fiberglass stock. I recently e-mailed them, because back then they were supposed to send you a copy of the heat treat specs on your reciever, and they forgot to include it and thought I would like to have it.. they said that after a Move or merger or something, they didn't have records that far back now...

I helped Armscorp out from the end of 02 until about May of 03. Those receivers from 16950 to about 17025 I engraved, deburred, parked, milled on, etc... I also did a few of the Fulton ones....like FA0101 thru like 10 I think...its been awhile.

Those were all made about Feb-April 03.

Also, we might as well start a database for Fulton Armory receivers. So, chime in if you have a Fulton Armory receiver.

TIA,

Different

OK...here are mine


1622x receiver only standard
1623x receiver only standard
DMR03xx receiver only rear lugged

all marked as “7.62 MM M14 NM”


But I don't know when they were made... my armorer had them in stock when I had the rifle(s) built. I will try to glean that info and add to this post later

imadazhell, based on previous reports, your Armscorp M14 NM receiver was probably made in 2002.

Lee,
Got another Armscorp reciever , 1594X ( now all Winny) to go along with 1577X (all TRW). just wondering why the lettering on the 1594X is alot deeper than on 1577X ? Looks like being that close on numbers they would be about the same.

boomer, congratulations on the new addition to the family. You raise a good question. FWIW, here's a description (from my book) of how Valley Ordnance numbered the M1A receivers for Springfield Armory, Inc.:

" Receiver heel stamping machine - The receiver heel markings were made with a pneumatically operated machine using straight dies and a rolling fixture. The receiver was held by the fixture and rolled on a radius while the pneumatically operated ram holding the die stamped the heel. The first die stamped U S RIFLE and 7.62-mm M1A for receivers just under serial number 063000 or US RIFLE M1A for receivers over serial number 063000. The die was then changed so that the machine could stamp the brand name. Then the third die was installed in the machine to stamp the individual serial number."

Armscorp M-14 NM SN: 1598X
Armscorp M-14 NM SN: 1599X
Armscorp M-14 NM SN: 1615X
Armscorp M-14 NM SN: 1684X
From GPC or Sarco. about 1999-2000 around then I believe to be factory seconds...due to flaw's in casting and low price, very easy to build using GI parts. B2B
