Re: Picture thread?

I just wandered over from the GOOD gun page, Garands Rule. Now that I have everyone mad I have to ask a question that has been with me since 1963 yes 63. I was in The 2AD when the Army went from the Garand to the M14. My question is, is there an old hand that can tell me if the M14 has been improved from the DOG that it was.
A little background, I fired the Garand for record for myself and seven (7) other people in basic because those characters from "Joisey" and Flatbush Ave. did not have a clue as to which end to point at the target. All I got from that was a couple of days of ringing ears. When I fired the M14 for record I was black, blue and yellow from my shoulder to the middle of my chest. The stock must have had the wrong cast or something because that damn thing beat me like I was a red headed step child. We played war games for months at a time down at Fort Hood and the stock would not take the beating that an M1 would. Put the M14 along side the door in your duce and a half and shut the door and the stock broke at the wrist almost every time. The dadgum barrel bent if you got rough with it. I guess I am biased because I fell in love with the Garand, love at first sight yet it took me twice to get the right woman so you see how I am.

I see you call yer weapon an old dog, well to me it is a mutt. It is no more than a BM59 or whatever those Springfield M1As are called. If you will go back to the post by Sikke dated 29 Mar. 08 you will see a real M14. I don't know what your old "dog" is but the mag tells me it isn't a M14, just a clone. You have a great weapon but my old 1950s Garand will stand with it any day any way. I won't at my age but the Garand is ageless.
I still would like to hear from one of the "Old Hands" on a real M14.

Re: Picture thread?

The very first rifle I learned to shoot was a Garand that saw action in the Battle of the bulge.
I loved shooting that rifle, I much prefer my M14s and don't feel the need to own any Garand.
O2M, there is nothing wrong with the Garand and I'm glad you like yours, but I prefer my M14s.


BTW, welcome to EOTAC

I want to know how you can tell by the mag? Is it the angle? I can tell by other ways but am interested in how to tell by the mag now...

I bought my dad a 1945 M1 Garand, great to shoot, crazy accurate and just a good rifle, he loves it. I'm building an M14 clone for myself...for the second time.

I'm no old hand but I'm willing to say there were probably many good reasons, like what you brought up about the stock breaking, that they changed to a reinforced fiberglass stock. As for it beating you up I've never had that happen so I can't comment...

Re: Picture thread?

Here is my M21 clone. ART II came from the old DCM back in the early 90's. Have not done much long distant shooting with it, but what shooting I have done, it has done great.

Re: Picture thread?

Here's a couple of pics that I recently took on a whim...they're not great, but it depicts all the M1A's together-ish...

SA 019598 (NFA Registered conversion)


Polytech M14S 08660, SA 079987, SA 055258


SA 018483, SA 029284, SA 104987


I have one other, but it's not very interesting to look at just yet, bare Armscorp receiver...needs a few more parts before assembly...one day, one day.

Enjoy,
Sterling

I really like the "striped" look in that last photo.

Re: Picture thread?

Thanks TT, it looks pretty, but that's the one that does not shoot for d*mnit. That is my oldest M1A, it has a USGI Big Red Birch stock that has been refinished and poorly bedded and needs a new stock that fits right, OR needs that one re-bedded by someone that knows what they are doing.
I still have not shot the one next to it, but it's USGI Walnut fits about the same (also poorly bedded), so I figure on the relative same results. One or both of them will be going into new stocks at some point.

Re: Picture thread?

It's a real shame that looks don't always translate into performance, isn't it?

Re: Picture thread?

I dressed up some of the babies today and took photos. Here's a photo of the USGI Springfield Armory walnut M14E2 stock. Yes, she's fully functional in both modes.

Here's my Armscorp M14 NM dressed up for M14 Grenadier duty:

Lastly, here's a Springfield Armory, Inc. M1A built into a M21A5 clone, receiver, sling, and optics aside. The scope is a Pride-Fowler RR800-1 model. Yes, it's fun to shoot suppressed.

New Pictures!

My very first EBR: Crazy Horse MK14 SEI USN Mod 0
The M14EBR T-shirt was a gift from my friend at TACOM-RI


These two SEI builds performed flawlessly at AAC's recent Silencer Shoot.

MK14 SEI Mod 1
This rifle prefers 168 gr ammo when suppressed.

M21A5 SEI/RRM
No bullet drop with NATO surplus through the suppressor @ 100 yards
