Dumb, real dumb question, but is Rockola manufacturing M1A/M14 receivers/barreled receivers? I thought I have seen a picture of one on one of the M14 web sites. JS. Papascull. :shock: :? :shock: :?

They are being made by Mark Hartman at James River Armory. I have put 3 together so far and they are as nice a receiver as you will find. Very close in quality to the LRBs that I have. Forged and ready to go. Mark has the right to the name Rock-Ola.

I have one waiting at my dealer's. It looks very nice. Already have the parts kit for it. While I am not too thrilled with all the stampings and writings all over the receiver, as was stated, they are nice. James River Armory is also making M14 bolts.

Both of our members above were fortunate to jump in early and grab low serial numbers of such a fine product . You can still purchase 3 digit serial numbers, but I wouldn't wait too long, word is getting out !

I took ownership of this JRA Rifle earlier this Month from a friend on another Rifle Forum. While these are his photos, I don't think he'd mind if I share them with you.

I have a SA Loaded, have had it for several years. Was contemplating an LRB , kind of a last rifle thing…going with iron sights for plates. Pure fun gun. I’m going to be 66 soon, want it to last until I’m 96…then I’ll have it rebuilt. Anyway, want the best out there…forged, closest to GI specs…all that. Then..up pops the Rockola M14, James River. What do you think? Rockola vs LRB? That might cause a dog fight....Just wondering....hope I'm doing this right. Great site! Merry Christmas !!

Oh, I'm just gonna add fuel to the fire within...

There's also a newcomer you didn't list: GunWorks of Lower Alabama. They're really a machine shop that obtained the manuf FFL. You can order custom S/Ns on the heel (currently). Rumor has it they'll take other custom requests for heel work, but I haven't quite confirmed that yet.

LRB is known good, JRA have been around a while as well. GWoLA are the fresh meat on the block.

I have two LRB rifles completely built. I have a JRA group buy receiver waiting to be built. I have a GWoLA group buy receiver pending (50% deposit has been sent).

BULA, more wood on the fire;; Bula Forge is the maker of the JRA receivers.. Now they are making and marketing their own receiver.

I'm sure USMCRVN6768 would love to post pictures of the ones he bought at Camp Perry this year.
Art; where are thoes pictures ??
