Brutus' Description

I saw the first prototype of this rifle at SHOT SHOW way back in January of this year and immediately fell in love. I simply couldn't believe, not only the quality of the rifle, but how a new production rifle could capture the overall look and essence of it's predecessor's'. Not only that but I got to spend time with the owners both Bula Defense System and James River Armory and discovered their love of these firearms, and how important attention to detail is for the both of them. Not only is this rifle gorgeous and accurate, it is one heck of a workhorse and a piece that any collector would be proud to own, shoot and display.

This beautiful new M14 rifle is a joint collaboration between Bula Defense Systems, and James River Armory. The rifle has a band new all forged Bula Defense premium grade receiver which serves as the building block for one fantastic rifle. Rile also has a new Bula Defense barrel as well as many other all new U.S. manufactured parts.

This rifle is proudly built by James River Armory. JRA is recognized as one of the leading builders in the world of historically correct U.S. Military firearms and this may well be their crown jewel. From it's forger receiver, to it's historically correct Black Walnut wood stock and matching hand guad this rifle has it going on. Fully warrantied by James River Armory. Ships with manual, warranty cards and 1-20 round magazine all in a hard case for maximum protection.

Note : We have had so many questions asked about these rifles and how they compare to the previous incarnation of the James River Built M14 riifles that we carried in the past, that we felt a lengthy explanation may be warranted in orer to clear up any misunderstanding. What you will see below is actually my direct response to a customer that ordered one of these but asked us for more clarity. I have reprinted it here just as written and only the name has been changed to protect the innocent.  Hopefully this explains the differences in the previous and the current rifle, and what you can expect when ordering one of these.

Dear Mr. XXXXXX , Thank you for your order and your inquiry for more inforamtion.

First let me say Thank You for the order. It has been received and processed successfully. 

In regards to the rifle itself, thanks again for pointing out the need for more detail. I will be working on expanding that ad today. In the mean time let me see if I can add some clarity here. 

Our previous M14 rifles by JRA were an exclusive James River Armory product. JRA currently owns the trade rights to the Rockola name and they were building M14 rifles on their own Rockola brand receivers, utilizing U.S. military surplus parts and sometimes new, and sometimes grade A surplus barrels with re-conditioned military stocks.  

Unfortunately surplus parts for the M14 rifles have largely dried up and those that you can still find are so expensive that to build a rifle from those parts exclusively any more became either impossible due to lack of parts, or totally cost prohibitive. As such, no more Rockola M14's utilizing surplus parts are available. 

The rifle we are currently offering is a collaboration between Bula Defense Systems and JRA with JRA simply acting as the builder. Bula Defense Systems is based out of Cleveland Ohio and is recognized for making some of the finest firearms components on the market today.  They are producing the " forged " receiver which is being utilized on this rifle as well as providing the new barrels and all of the other component parts for the build. James River is providing the brand new stocks ( I don't know where they are sourcing them but they are American Black Walnut and they are gorgeous ) and of course JRA is assembling and fine tuning the rifles.  

Since JRA is the builder and arguably the more recognizable name for marketing purposes, the Bula receiver's have been marked James River Armory and these rifles are being marketed as a James River Armory M14's. Rightfully so I may add as you will see their quality of workmanship and attention to detail in the build. 

As a side note - this is typical in the industry as in most cases you have manufacturers who provide the components, and builders who assemble and market them. For instance their are 2 major manufacturer's of AK rifle receivers in the  U.S. that provide virtually all of the receivers for all of the different brands of AK rifles on the market, and the same is even more true of AR-15's. 

Anyway the bottom line on this M14 rifle is this. There was nothing wrong with the Rockola M14 and if you are a history buff and like the name Rockola, or if you wanted the rifle to have all U.S. military surplus parts on it ( which is the way it was marketed ) then you would have been very happy with the previous incarnation of that rifle. When James River built the Rockola rifle they built a great product. Heck, I loved them and still have one myself even after selling my Springfield, and I plan to keep it too. It is a fantastic shooter so what more could I want. 

However, in regards to this new James River Armory rifle. When you take into account the new Bula forged receivers and new Bula barrels, as well as other Bula made factory new parts that they are using, JRA is able to achieve tighter tolerances in the build. When you combine that with the upgraded new walnut stocks, the strength of that forged receiver, and the upgraded finish that you are able to achieve with the new as opposed to surplus parts, and the fact that each one is more custom built than production assembled.... you simply have a remarkable rifle.

In fact, I think that this is absolutely the finest M14 rifle on the market today at any price point. 

I hope I have answered your questions. Let me know if we can be of further service.
