I do not have an online shopping cart. Once installed, that piece of software will automatically bill each customer for everything. As I run out of original material, I am constantly having to change customers' orders. Most orders would require more work issuing credits. If I were selling newly made items, online clearance of credit cards would not present a problem. All credit card and contact information is on each page. You can call in your credit card, email it, or send it by mail.

The used bullet guides have been measured and the dimensions comply with the Rebuild Standards of 1953.

 WWII Rear Sight Restoration Parts
S44A    Pinion Drum, originally known as Knob, Elevating, Rear Sight. PHOTO Return to the days of yesteryear, when you could find items new in the grease, in the original packaging. Recently  I found an unopened pack of SA drums for the WWII Rear Sight Pinion. If you want to build a WWII SA lock bar sight, here is one of the items. PHOTO I have only 25 available. When these are gone, they will be gone forever. PHOTO  $15.00 each

                   *noted items interchangeable with M14

          M1 Rifle Accessories 

A1   M10 Butt stock Equipment Kit, includes sections, tip,  handle, canvas case, oiler, bore brush and grease pot. This kit is not one of those reproductions that are flooding the market. The kit is ideal for use as a portable cleaning kit. It dates to the late 1960's, which includes the grease pot, the late fabric case and M14 short oiler. PHOTO
It also includes the improved post 1962 Handle Assembly (Combo Tool) which is shown on the right. PHOTO The early version consists of less than 15% of the surviving surplus tools, but the internet is full of Chinese imports of the early version.  .................  $28.50

Here is the mid 1980 contract version, which eliminated the tools on the M10 Handle.  It was designed for the M60 Machine Gun, but many purchase it to eliminate the tooling.  PHOTO   $14.50

Cleaning Rod Sections, M10.  Available individually.  Shades of finish can vary. PHOTO  Thiese are originals made during the 1984 contract, not Chinese imports.  PHOTO  $2.50 each   10/$20.00

For those that want to dress their rifles with original 1953 thru 1958 vintage cleaning kits, send an email and I will get back to you.

A2   Caliber .30 Bore Brush ...............           $1.50 each

Many are now selling imported Chinese chamber brushes on the inter-net. The bristles are lighter and they do not hold up as well to vigorous cleaning. Ask to see the photos of those claiming to be selling original GI of high quality.

As per my standards of the last 41 years, I sell only USGI: 

A3   Ratchet Chamber Brush Ord. Part No.  PHOTO .30 Cal. 
7790582 .30 Cal (30-06)...............................              $6.00           

Or please specify Ord. Part No. 7790463   PHOTO 7.62 NATO
7.62 NATO ..................................................               $3.00

Note: Several internet sites are shipping M60 chamber brushes, either out of ignorance or dishonesty.  The M60 chamber brush is too long and can leave bristles in the throat area, effecting accuracy. It is also too long to fit in the M14's butt stock.  Make sure you insist on the proper brush for the proper job. PHOTO ID

A4  Replacement brush for M3A1 Combination Tool, original US GI production, not imports.   Specify original WWII or solid brass from 1953, ....................................................................................   8.00

For serious collectors only. Original packing box used by Union Fork and Hoe during the 1944 contract of M3A1 Combination Tools. The carton originally contained 10 Combination Tools. The outside label was pasted onto the lid. PHOTO  The label contains the Ordnance Drawing Number, the stock number, and the early nomenclature. The quantity of tools was hand printed. Included with the box is the packing list which was included in each box of ten tools.  PHOTO  $25.00 purchases the carton and packing list. Sorry, tools not included ;>)  

A5   Blank Firing Attachment, as knows as Blank Firing
        Adapter, Blank Adapter, and Blank Firing Device.       
        PHOTO  Screws on in place of the gas cylinder lock. Allows
        semi automatic functioning with blanks.
        Commercial item................................................  $9.00

A6   1960’s Vintage rifle grease, for butt stock
        stowage  .................................................................  1.00 each     

A7   Garand 8 round clips, customer can specify which, or we will send whatever is quick. Don't get stuck with cheap internet specials from overseas. Insist on original US GI. You can find cheaper, but they are either Chinese junk, or used clips that had ammo removed.  All these are the last few that are still Brand New, US GI, Never Loaded.

DAQ - Those on the internet that are new, are being made in China.  The statement that they were produced
on original equipment is false.  When asked the name of the company that provided the equipment, there was
no known information.
 

DAQ 8 Rd clips, never loaded, new US GI still packed in original drums with VCI paper. 
Produced in 1967 for US Dominion Arsenal by a company located in Canada. PHOTO
Each clip has a rich black finish. This is the last known supply of original US GI clips in new unused condition.

 BR-W 8 Rd clips, never loaded, new US GI still pakced in original drums with VCI paper.  Produced
 in 1967 by Borg Warner.  PHOTO  The clips are marked BR-W, brand new. This is the last known supply of original US GI clips in new unused condition.

A8   M31 Action Brush, Mfg’d WWII, Fuller Brush
Company. These brushes are not reproductions that were produced about 5 years ago.  All come out of an original box of 300, produced in 1944. PHOTO  The brush was originally produced for the M1 Rifle, but it was so popular with GI's, it was eventually issue for use with the M1 Carbine and many other small arms............................................. $6.00ea

A9   Case, Thong and Brush, otherwise known as the plastic oiler.
PHOTO Produced during WWII.  I have a small quantity of originals.
All have that aged sheen that comes from being 60+ years old.

I have a very small quantity of like new at $25.00 each. These have the actual short brush with brass bristles designed for use with the thong assembly during WWII.  PHOTO These oilers are not the current reproductions from the Third World.

Shown in this photo is the nomenclature item with the tag attached. Usually one was packed with the tag  for ease of identification in case of damage to the crate or its markings.   PHOTO All will be shipped from this crate of 2000 manufactured during WWII.

PHOTO $12.00

Many are restoring M1s without staking the rear sight

N20   Brookfield Precision Tool Spring Guide, M14 NM. Original BPT production from 1996, it is hard to believe this item is still in its original wrap from 14 years ago. There are other quality spring guides on the market, but there was only one Brookfield.  This guide was part of the contract specification for the XM25 Sniper Rifle. Without it, you can not build a proper M25 clone. $85.00  plus $10.00 shipping and insurance, Hi. and Ak. more. PHOTO

See Garand Section for parts that interchange with M14

M14  Accessories  

B1      Butt stock Equipment Kit. Despite what you may see on web sites, the government never stores any new material loose, out of wrap.
99% of all kits and cleaning equipment on the inter-net are reproductions from China.  When you see a rod case with B098 marking as part of a cleaning kit, Garand or M14, 99% chance it is a imported fake. PHOTO The fact is this marking was used with only 2% of all US GI production, but it is the easiest to read. Most US GI cases are marked differently and the markings, if any, are difficult to read. That is why the fakers picked this version.

Each kit I sell has been assembled from original Old Stock:

Combination Tool, repacked for storage in VCI Paper....... PHOTO
4 Sections, contracted in 1984 ............................................. PHOTO
Cleaning Rod Tip, contracted in 1967...................................PHOTO
Rod Case, contracted 1964 thru 1968.................................. PHOTO
Chamber Brush, repacked for storage 1980's................... PHOTO
Oiler, late issue, produced from 1961 thru 1968.
Each kit comes with the rod sections, bore brush, spacer, and tip, already packed inside fabric case......................................... PHOTO

Basic Cleaning Kit shown above, all US GI components. $28.50

For the advanced M14 collector, you can purchase the above US GI kit, but with a Combination Tool in an Original Contractor Wrap, 1965 thru 1969. Since there were 6 different contracts, the actual tool I ship may be a different contract, time period, or packaging shown in the sample photo, but it will be readable and in new condition.
SAMPLE PHOTO  A nice collectible. Specify kit with contracted wrapped Combination Tool....add $3.50 for a total of .....................$32.00

Another item for the advanced M14 collector is the very early cleaning rod case, called the "Long Neck". This case has a much longer tab and was designed similar to the M1 Rifle's butt stock rod case from 1956-57.  This case was produced circa 1961-62 and were inside cleaning kits that accompanied rifles from the SA production line.  Production quantities also supported the other rifles produced by other contractors, but after rifle production ceased, these cases were never produced again.  PHOTO Substituted in US GI kit $10.00 additional (Not Sold Separately, they are too difficult to find)

Cleaning Rod Sections, M10.  Available individually.  Shades of finish can vary. PHOTO  Thiese are originals made during the 1984 contract, not Chinese imports.  PHOTO  $2.50 each   10/$20.00

B2      Ratchet Chamber Brush, 7.62 mm,
Ordnance Part No. 7790463  ……........................        $3.00

B5      Flash Suppressor Set Screw Removal Wrench  $1.00

B6      Front Sight Removal Wrench………………..    $1.00

B7      Stock Liner Removal & Installation tool. PHOTO Commercial item, it makes removing and installation of the Stock Liner an easy chore. Tools is a spanner wrench with leverage to remove and tighten the liner screws. PHOTO  $7.50 each
          
B8      M14A1 (M14E2) Maintenance Case. This was the authorized cleaning equipment case for the squad automatic version of the M14. Due to the rubber butt pad and the stock's lack of storage holes, the M14A1 required its own special case for the operator's cleaning equipment. The equipment was stored in within the field gear. Contracted 1968 though 1970. Save money on a complete kit as shown.  SOLD OUT     PHOTO

 Return Policy

Every item sold is guaranteed to function as originally designed.  Items purchased which do not function as originally designed, will be replaced at no charge to the customer.  Items purchased for uses different than they were originally designed, will void the guarantee, and those sales are final.  Returned items must be in the same condition as when shipped and any alteration will void our guarantee. Call or email if in doubt, we are here to help.

Items purchased and then returned due to customer error will result in a restocking charge of 25%. 
In the event that item brings the total purchase below our minimum order, a $5.00 charge will be applied to the credit due.  Items returned for replacement due to customer error may result in addition shipping charges.

Sorry but I cannot sell parts based upon color requests.  Nobody on the internet can match their parts with your rifle, which is hundreds of miles away.  Ask and it will be recommended you attend a gun show with those items you want to match and compare them with what is available for sale.

All items for return must be tendered to the returning carrier within one week of receipt by customer.  We recommend high value items be returned via UPS to our return address on the shipping label.
