    The guys are right on MOM.

    Now this is why I call them Trashfield, some of many operations

    done here in my shop to bring them closer to correct status.

    I could go into details but it would take me forever to type it out.

    They are more interested in profit than quality.

    I have been reworking them since around 1978-1982 ???

    This one was for removing a rib leftover from the FA selector mount.
    They only removed enough to be legal.
    This caused a lot of problems on guns they built,
    and the hacking they did to get them together.

    This was a brand new receiver, mods were done to this one about 10 years ago.
    It was assembled as a field grade(combat) rifle with all USGI parts and barrel.
    This one was done for a friend.

    @SOCOM42 , I get your drift, hope there's nothing major that will affect reliability in the Trashfields. Would you say there was some years where they put out decent M1a's?

    The quality depended on a day to day basis, never knew what you got.

    Today their quality is down due to the lack of USGI parts. JMHO.

    I would only see ones that failed in some way, did not know the year of build or if they even did it.

    Plus I did not care, my objective was to get it working right.

    Receivers were bought and built into guns by a lot of smiths in the country.

    My Springfield is a 1992, and matching numbers against the charts that were on Different’s old site, most of them are USGI.
    I’m happy with mine, I never had any intention of becoming a Camp Perry shooter.
