    Glad to be here

    Apologies to all for not posting here in the past...I never realized LRB Arms had our own section here until speaking with Hawk recently. Duh...

    I'm re-posting an LRB intro I just boosted from that other site that I no longer frequent. Thank you Hawk for affording me the opportunity to share my M14 experiences with members on this forum:

    Although my background is not one of a military armorer, or machinist…through trial and error I have taught myself just enough to be considered a menace.
    Ever since handling that first M14 in March 1968 (courtesy of our Uncle) I knew I had to own one. Applied for an FFL in 1971 and began retailing Springfield Armory M1A’s shortly thereafter. Thought $297.50 was expensive and they would never sell….I was wrong.
    As time passed and I became more knowledgeable of the platform, I got the urge to build a better mouse trap. I felt that the M14 receiver design could not be improved upon…but adherence to the blueprint could. During mid 1990’s an opportunity to manufacture genuine forged M14 receivers presented itself…so I jumped at it. Cost was astronomical…thought they would never sell. Again…I was wrong. Thanks to the many members on this forum who supported us, the rest is history.

    You are more than welcome Lou. The only thing you have been a menace to is my pocket book. I have 7 of your fine receivers on builds in the herd and 1 rifle built in your facility.
    Keep it up and thanks for being there.

    I have heard nothing but good things about your rifles. Next time I visit the Island, I will have to give you guys a visit.
