 Yeah, blueprints make me queasy.

 I'm not sure I'd like to try one made from even aircraft aluminum. I've got a whole lot of time behind an M-14. I think that aluminum would tear apart from extreme galling or rapidly crack from the recoil. The M-14 and M-4 gas systems are worlds different. The smaller caliber round and the buffer tube go a long way towards lessening the forces on the M-4 receiver. The M-14 doesn't have that benefit. Everything smacks receiver.

 No one forced you to look.

Thank you for your opinion, I will keep it in mind for my future uploads...

I appreciate the sentiment, but unlike the M-16/M4 lower receiver, the M-14 receiver must withstand great stresses in use. It's not suitable for 3D printing.

I suppose if you have a mill capable of working in steel it might be handy to have, though. :-)

I would agree, machining out of a high grade aluminum may be able to handle the stresses as well.
