$66 m14, thompson m1, and a Beretta shotty

$66 each...

so far I have the m14's action is freeish, the hammer is not seating all the way home, probably some rust blocking it. Bore is MINT so is the bolt face. The Thompson has a nice bore so it's probably about the same condition internally.

At first I thought this was a "for sale" thread. I would have visited this weekend to buy all three!

Did someone drop them in a lake or bury them in mud?

You think you can get any of them to function.

Of course, the beretta is going to be the easiest...I've got a lead on a parts kit right now. the receiver is aluminum and mint otherwise so once the junk parts are replaced she will be like brand new. It's last on my fix-it list though.

The m14 is coming along well. IF I can get the trigger group out of the stock with out cutting the stock up I can have it running by next week. I have the group free although stiff...its just stuck in the receiver do to it not going in to the cocked position fully. The bore and chamber are MINT...not suprising being USGI chrome lined. It looks bad but the gun is 80% functional as we speak.

Once the lower drops out I can have it running in a couple of hours. I would like to keep this project under $100 from start to finish as a challenge. I found some USGI stocks for $20... so if the rifle does not give up the trigger group in a week then I'll cut the wood off and work on the group till it does drop free.

Best case, I can get it separated and I'm in a cleaned functioning rifle for $66
May have to buy a stock, $86
IF I have to replace the trigger group $310.....

I'll probably do the electric bath, bead blast, and park.

The Thompson is going to be harder to fix, I don't know much about them so I need to read up on how to field strip it before I start banging away. It gets a good soaking of PB every night and nothing has freed up like the m14 did so far.

I just got my tank setup ready so here's a small update. I'm only running it for a couple hours tonight, I'll let it rip after work tomorrow.

Just a update, the action is field stripped. Gas system is ok, sights are still locked up. With a park job I think 90+% of the pitting will disappear. The trigger group is still crusty and may need to be replaced, I haven't started messing with it yet.
