    I find it amazing that our government would accept a single digit as a legit serial number.
    The older I get, the more I realize "life in prison" is not that much of a deterrent.

    My Dad made a stainless steel revolver by scaling up a cutaway view on the cover of a magazine.
    He stamped it 1.

    The whole heel stamp is part of the identification system. I have had some questions when getting approval from the CT ST PD especially with some that are marked M14. They tend to get over it after a few questions.

    I have a TFL74 M14 and AR15

    I had a Barnes Precision set but my neighbor claimed one. So I sorta have a consecutive set as well sorta…

    I’d really like to have TFL10 AR15 and M14 as well as TFL96 M14….

    Re: Consecutive ser numbers on M14 type rifles.

    Guy's I am working on having me both of my Jae's to have Bula XM-21 receivers in them... My Grey JAE from Johnb2488 has #34 and and my JAE dot gun has #56 which I am planning on sending to Forceman on the other site to re-barrel with another 5r-22 light weight barrel I got from Jon Wolfe (which he has) and install into my 'Jeep Gun's' BlackFeather chassis and take the Bula #33 receiver it has and re-barrel with the Kreiger hvy I have on order with Jon Wolfe to install and put it into my JAE Dot Gun's chassis... I want MY JAE's to have Bula XM-21 receivers #33 & #34.

    I thought they'd require a number such as 000001 and not just 1. Same thing of course, but that's just how our government works...making the simple difficult.
