    I bought my LRB from Wolverine. ###### carries them now too, along with Fulton ones that are claimed to be the best cast one's you can buy. Most simply grabbed a healthy Norc and did the swap since the rifle as a whole was cheaper than any American made receiver offered at the time (and still is). I'm looking to offload a norc or two, PM me if you're interested.

    Issues that I see:

    - Lots of folks bought M305s for cheap 10 or more years ago for $400. some in multiples. Lots out there.
    With a bit of tuning and hand loading or decent surplus, they are or can be a good 2-3 Moa gun.
    - Buying a surplus kit for more than the M305 rifle was worth to begin with, from a bin with unknown quality, and you still have the same capability for accuracy? Not too many are going to sign on to that.
    - Swapping M-14 stuff isn't for the average tinkerer, so there is more insofar as knowledge base required that guys are going to shy away from.
    - Buying an LRB or Fulton receiver and then adding the parts kit? seems to me it makes more sense to just buy a decent Springer or LRB to start.
    Now with some AR-10 style rifles that are out there in kit form and built for similar money? ARs are dead nuts simple to wrench on, and don't require 'smithing skills necessarily, so there is that too.

    So true...this is exactly why I stoped thinking about building one myself...I am no hardcore historian

    Where i see the value in the parts kits is in the sights, flash hider, gas cylinder and trigger group and having a spare oprod and bolt is always a good thing. So really, for the price of the kit you are getting a bunch of very useable parts for a build or to just upgrade your existing M1A or m305 without removing it's barrel.

    I don*t know where else you can find a USGI trigger group or bolt at the moment. Sights are not much easier to come by. With the state of current Chicom M305s, I’d much rather one of these kits and a US reciever. Glad Wolverine brought these in. My bank account is not as happy.
