One of the most sought after of the modern machine guns is the Stoner. Originally designed in 1963 it is a landmark design for a modular weapons system which can be a rifle, carbine, light box magazine-fed machine gun, belt-fed machine gun, or vehicle-mounted machine gun. A few of these original guns saw service in Vietnam in the hands of the Navy and Marine Corps. Those which returned were mostly purposely destroyed, or some went to police departments. Very, very few made it into the National Firearms Act registry for private ownership by individuals in the United States. Fortunately for firearms historians, collectors, and shooting enthusiasts, Reed Knight of Knights Armament Company developed an appreciation and affinity for Eugene Stoner’s designs, and a friendship and business relationship with the man himself. Reed purchased enough original Stoner parts including unfinished receivers from Eugene Stoner to make finishing and assembly of these parts into guns a viable course of action. This Knight’s Armament manufactured Stoner 63A is the 13th one of these so produced. Currently set-up to feed left to right. If one can acquire the appropriate parts, this receiver could be reconfigured to one or more of the other modular weapons systems above. No bipod present. Electronic NFA registry indicates “KNIGHT’S ARMAMENT COMPANY” as the manufacturer and “63A” as the model. PROVENANCE: From the collection of esteemed NFA firearms enthusiast and collector J. R. Moody. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent original factory black hard coat and matte blue finish. There is evidence of firing on the feed tray and on the feed mechanism parts, and the carrying handle has some slight loss of paint at the high edges. Composite furnishings near excellent. Bore is near excellent shiny and bright. Bolt face near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select-fire machine gun. Reed Knight finished off 100 of these receivers and parts into guns as fully transferable in January to 1986, making these guns collector’s items in their own right. They very rarely surface for public sale as they are usually snapped up by friends of registered owners. They are tremendously fun to shoot as well as being historic pieces of American modern military firearms development. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4. JWK 2022-3-21
