    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...

    I am trading my ar10 on a site and have gotten two offers one for a socom 16 and one for a ptr 91. I have a lot of experience with the m14 over seas so it kinda draws me but the ptr 91 is nice too. The socom is stock but with a nice scope mount and sling etc. the ptr 91 is custom with a new 18...

    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.

    Working up another article for ReadyMan Magazine and I could use some input. I was just debating with my Navy SEAL co-host the merits of a .308 battle rifle. His point: there's not much of a tactical slot for a semi-auto .308. So, we'll probably build an article with him shooting the SCAR Heavy...

General Pros and Cons. And any other Information that would be helpful. I will not be in a situation...

    Do you have the M1A as your primary rifle for SHTF? I was thinking of purchasing a semi-auto 7.62/.308 rifle, and had been considering an AR type weapon in .308. An acquaintance (that doesn't need to know I am a survivalist) suggested that I investigate the M1A. If you use an M1A as your...

    I found a Springfield armory Socom II for a grand and i was wondering if it was a deal I should go with. I'm not crazy about .308 ballistics out of a 16 inch barrel or the cluster rail. The rail is an easy fix. What do you guys think? anyone own one and how does it do in real world applications...

    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...

    So I have been struggling with the question, what signs of wear should I be looking for in my rifle. I own a Springfield Armory Standard M1A that I have put almost 1,000 rounds out of so far, and it is recommended that it be taken apart as absolutely little as possible. I have heard that after...

    Are you considering buying a rifle chambered in 308 Winchester to help you and your family through a long term SHTF situation? The three main rifles on the market are the M1A, PTR-91 and the FN/FAL. There are a lot of articles out there discussing the points of each rifle. What is rarely...

    I'm considering a large caliber weapon. I would like to know what opinions are out there.

    Hello everyone! I am moving to Colorado (honestly can't wait to leave Maryland) in a few months and am looking for a new rifle. I currently have a Marlin 30-30 but am looking for a rifle with increased range for hunting and blowing holes through paper. Sadly this is not a "what is the...

    I would like to make my next purchase. My budget is at around $1000 Can you recommend me a great rifle. At this point I don't have that much preference between bolt action, semi-auto or lever action Basically I want you guys to try and "sell" me different guns and calibers because I'm having...

    Which is best?
  19. Military Weapons Forum
    I know, I know, its been asked before, but why not. I can get one for a lot cheaper than an m1a. I like the .30-06 caliber, hence my username. And if i really want a .308, I'd just get the tanker conversion (still for less than an m1a). But I want some opinions. Getting ammo isn't really a major...

    I was entertaining the idea of a silencer for an M1A, but since the barrel threads are so short, I wouldn't really trust their strength. The question is that if I were to install a Delta P 5/8 X 24 adapter, would that make it a more stable platform? Thanks in advance guys.
