Scarce U.S. Issue H&R M-14 Deactivated Rifle Vietnam Era
- Price: $3,950.00 CAD
Original U.S. Issue M-14 7.62 Nato rifle built by H&R Arms Co. This rifle is serial #55816 which was in the first group of rifles built for the U.S. military. This rifle is mounted with the full auto selector on the right side of the receiver. The metal shows all of the correct clear markings. This example shows 100% of its original Parkerized finish. The wood shows the P proof and its factory finish with only the most minor handling or storage marks. This rifle originated from the U.S. contract and is not one of the small lot of M-14 rifles that were imported from Israel as semiautos years ago. The M-14 was the official U.S. service rifles from the 1959-1970 until it was replaced by the Colt M-16. Note: this rifle was set up with a NM (National Match) barrel. The military sniper M-14 had NM barrels. This was the initial rifle as carried and used in the Viet-Nam war. It remained in US service with the Special Forces as a sniper rifle. This is a very uncommon rifle to find in this condition and configeration(FA). The H&R contract was much smaller than the M-14 rifles as built by Springfield Armory and Winchester. A piece of history for the U.S. small arms or the Viet-Nam collection.
