I bought a used Armscorp that came with the original purchase receipt, but I can't tell by the receipt if it was sold new or used though.

A0070XX 3/22/92

Different 12-22-2004 07:12 PM

coulter6, thanks. Based on what little I do know about the Armscorp receivers, that receipt sounds like the original purchase date. Okay, we'll go with that and modify later on if need be. I suspect Armscorp pretty much made receivers to order. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

T-man 12-22-2004 07:54 PM

Bought my Arnscorp bare receiver from GPC on 4/27/04.
M14 NM Ser # 1701X. No telling how long it was in stock.

I don't know why some s/n have an "A" prefix, but mine is just "0071xx", purchased Jan '91. Heel is marked "US RIFLE", then "7.62 MM M14".

Don't some Armscorp say "NM" instead? The lugged ones, maybe?

Paladin

Different 12-24-2004 05:11 PM

Yes, some Armscorp receivers are marked M14 NM and others are marked M21.

Tommo 12-25-2004 08:13 AM

Armscorp # 10451 Manufactured on 04/25/93

Phil McGrath 12-31-2004 10:52 PM

I have no idea when mine was made I picked it up used #11692 aslo marked NM.

gas_gunner 12-31-2004 11:03 PM

I have number 1580X
and number 1670X

I was told 15,80X was "preban" but it does not look like it based on what I have seen here. 16,70X was a reciever that was sitting around since who knows when at the shop but I bought it in Oct of 2004.

Any truth to the rumors Armscorp produced some special and out of sequence serial numbers?

Different 01-03-2005 04:45 PM

Springfield Armory, Inc., Maunz Mfg., and Smith Enterprise, Inc. issued custom serial numbers back in the 1980s. It's possible that Armscorp USA also issued custom serial numbers but I don't have any first hand witness knowledge or photograhic evidence of that, yet.

Armscor NM #151xx, purchased 5/93 from Sarco.

Big Bore Lover 01-09-2005 02:14 PM

1050X and not sure of the date but kinda thinkin I beat Tommo out on the auction for it. Sorry if its you guy. Its clean, and appears to have never had a tube screwed into it. Hopefully Armscorp can give me an actual date.

GeoffM24 01-12-2005 05:37 AM

OK we are missing something here!

How can 15k rifles be 93-94 and 16k rifles be almost 10 years older?

2ifbyC 01-13-2005 03:57 AM

Just received SN 151XX. I have no idea when it was made/purchased.

I did note that the lettering was shallow. Is this common?

GeoffM24 01-18-2005 06:33 AM

My 15K is SUPER shallow in terms of lettering, my 16K is much deeper.

2ifbyC 01-18-2005 09:54 AM

GeoffM24,

Thanks for the info. :D My lettering is quite shallow also. I have to get the light just right for my old eyes. Still love her though!

JeffJ 02-01-2005 12:01 PM

Received 17k from sarco, rear site holes drilled incorrectly, Sarco says all the ones they have are like that..it is going back...
Anyone else have them in stock?

Tuscan Son 02-12-2005 11:03 AM

Purchased 1708X directly from Armscorp 11/03. And made a mighty fine rifle. Medium grey parkerized color.

BTW, It only likes TRW & Winchester op rods. Won't have anything to do with any other kind. 8)

Edited to correct purchase date of 11/03. :oops:
