    The official M14 /M1A appreciation thread. Here in the USA, there are roughly 500K M14 type rifles in civilian hands. More than 300K are commercial clones sold as M1As by Springfield Armory Inc. The rest are commercial M14 clones from assorted companies, including those imported from China...

    The 308 rifle niche was already filled with the M1A, FN/FAL, PTR-91, Remington Woodsmaster, and various bolt action 308 rifles. The AR platform in 308 is trying to fill a niche that is already full. www.alloutdoor.com/2015/10/22/heavy-duty-shtf-battle-rifles/ I remember reading about the...

    I saw that AIM and SGammo have been selling surplus Austrian 7.62x51mm ammo. Some of the earlier stuff is berdan primed and the later (1983 or so) is boxer primed. Does anyone here have any experience shooting it?

    Well, since the dark days of 1988 when center-fire semi-auto rifles were restricted the elusive FN FAL was out of reach, no longer! Look what Watch Ryder buzzed in from the nearby FFL: SA 58 FN FAL! The Right Arm of the Free World descends, one of the Kings of the Battle Rifle calibers...

    Just moved out of my parents house after graduating college, looking to invest in a battle rifle before I enlist as an officer in the marine corps. These are the ones I have looked at just wondering if anyone can share their experience. I have enough money to buy any of them but obviously the...

    First, I know that there are plenty who will say this dude was a poor shot or didn't use the right load/ammo or provide video evidence to the contrary or ...etc. Yet, there is a reason some states outlaw .223/556 for hunting deer-sized game and the reason I personally hunt with more robust...

    Where is the best place to buy steel targets ?? I have a 8" AS500 1/2 " gong, but I would like to find enough steel to make a few silhouettes and maybe some knock downs and a springed pop back. will a plasma cutter go through it? do I NEED 1/2" if the largest cal I fly is 7.62 nato ?? I am a...

    I made another thread on the MSR a few days ago, but there's some new models coming out aswell, several aimed at the mil-spec purist perspective, a couple SBRs, and of course, my favorite thus far, the MSR. Also, it is confirmed that PTR has redisgined the PTR32 in 7.62x39 soviet. It will...

    One of the reasons the AR and AK rifles are so popular is that, well, they're so popular. Tons of accessories and aftermarket parts, and if things start to break down, their ubiquity would mean you'd still be able to find replacements. What's the closest thing in .308? M1A? FAL? Rem 700...

    :D:http://centerfiresystems.com/AKAGUN-VEPR-54R.aspx This is a brand spanking new product improved Russian Dragunov. These are quite probably superior in accuracy to the original military issue dragunov. These are 7.62x54 guys!:D:

    My question is certainly one that's been asked before, however the search function is weak and I didn't find it by flipping back a page or two. So bear with me... What is an inexpensive, legitimate option for a MBR(main battle rifle) that is NOT an AR? At this point in my life a 1300 dollar...

    If your ONLY two choices for a personal AR/MBR (gotta cover your bases for the nit-pickers) were the Armalite AR-10 16" Carbine or the PTR91 Squad Carbine 16" which would you choose and what would be your decision factors?

    Ok, so for the past few years my MBR has been a converted saiga 7.62x39. Which in it's own right isn't a bad thing at all. I love AK's. The design just works. All be it a some what stolen design. I am pretty hardcore into weapons history. So seeing where all modern select fire magazine fed...

    I'm currently trying to decide on a MBR. Initially .308 was the only caliber I considered, and from there it was the typical M1A, FAL, PTR, Saiga debate. Now I'm backtracking a bit and wondering if 7.62x54R might offer some more options. My initial budget is limited to $1000, and I had been...

    So, I was quoted today for two different PTR 91's. The squad/scout version with a top rail and a railed handguard for 1399, and the same version without the two rails on it for 1199. I've never bought a PTR before but this seems a little pricey. I think i could swing it right now, but was...

    Lets say that I have a "friend" and this friend wants to add some modifications to his DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL. What would be some good mods to add to the rifle? The first thing is a scope mount. The rifle is just a standard SA58 with no rail or scope mount on the dust cover. From what I was...

    I have been thinking about picking up a CETME. Does anyone have any direct experience with one? I don't know anybody who has owned or shot one. Your comments/advice are greatly appreciated.

    I am about to purchase a dependable SHTF rifle. I have narrowed my choice to between a DSA SA58 and a 922r converted Saiga 7.62 x 39. They both cost about the same. Ideally I would like to have both, but I can only afford one at the moment. If you have used either or both, please talk me into...

    Thinking real hard about adding one of these to our battery, to those of you that own one how are they? How about mags, aluminum or steel? I'm an AK guy but we need to add a longer reaching auto to our loadout and this one fits the bill.
