After two years wait, I have finally received the Norinco M14/M305 rifle last week. It's Chinese clone of M14/M1A battle rifle, but 75% cheaper.
The finish looks great once I removed all the oil from the rifle. But the rear sight windage knob was stuck. I gave up and decided to dissemble it. During the process, the windage knob started to work as designed! I just don't understand, don't they do quality check on each gun before it leaves the factory?
Looking for maintenance tips on M14 at you_tube. I found the following video clips. Very useful.
