    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...

    My LPV (rings included) weighs about three ounces more than the Comp M4. The 2 MOA RDS is great and battery life is outstanding, but the 1.5-5 LPV with an illuminated 1 MOA dot is also very nice. What would you choose, and why?

    So folks, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna buy myself a Norinco M14S (M305) for my birthday. The Canadian dollar is low as hell, the prices on the M14's in my gunstore haven't dropped ($625 IIRC), and it's my birthday. Why the heck not? I was wondering if anyone has any tips for buying a ChiCom M14 and...

    I was leaving yesterday's Gun and Knife show in Birmingham, AL and picked up a Springfield M1A like new in the box for $1K. I'll post some pics once my camera's charged.

    This is for those of you wanting something different for your M14/M1A rifle. Our Canadian neighbors to the North have come up with some rather nice products for the M14/M1A owners. These items can be imported into the USA, contact the manufacturer (M14.CA) for details. I received the...

    Okay so i picked up a m1a scout as my main shtf rifle to hold the role as my battle rifle... I figured it would produce mediocre because of the 18in barrel and boy did i underestimate this rifle. I shot iron sights this whole range report. At first i zeroed it at 100 yards hitting 1 inch to 1.5...

    Ok. I have a chance to get a Norinco sporter M14. From what I've read, they are hard to find. I like the 308 round and wanted some opinions. He wants $900 for it. Is this a good deal or am I just fixated on an M14? Any help would be appreciated.

    I have to say without a doubt the French (Oh yeah Belgium, same place) FN FAL! The only reason this rifle even became popular is because the US supported a mid caliber rifle for standardization of NATO.... Then the US not wanting to have a rifle of the same ilk as the rest of NATO and naturally...

    Okay, I strongly encourage those with specific knowledge and well gleaned opinions (of the non-emotional kind) to add to this as we go. First of all the definition of the acronym "MBR." MBR = Main Battle Rifle or Modern Battle Rifle (It really depends upon who it is you are speaking with...

    Im going to be converting my new Saiga soon and Im kinda of stuck picking what I should refinish the sporter plate with. Once I remove it the metal underneath is bare and will need to be painted. I've heard some people say to use Engine spray paint, others have recommended different finishes...

    Hey all, Was wondering if anyone had experience with the Norinco M14 clone?.. Here in Canada, these are available for about $530(Canadian), with a mag pinned to 5 rounds. Can't decide between a Russian SKS, CZ858, or to try the .308 (we have heavy brush up here, I think it would perform...

    Granted, this is all for the future as I am not yet old enough to buy a rifle in my state (Illinois), however, as one can see from my name that i LOVE guns and know quite a bit about them. I want to get an M14 as my first rifle, besides its durability, it was based on the M1 Garand and of...
