Had an M1A Scout, had to sell it for financial reasons. I miss it.

I'm a fan. Best all around rifle ever made. Of course I MAY be a bit biased. I've got some pics posted around here somewhere already.

Yeah, I've seen those pics. You've got some gems, you have every reason to be biased.

Thanks. I have never been able to resist a nice M14. One of these days if you make it down to the LA area we'll go spend a day and burn some powder through them. We have a range with 650 yard steel (200yd paper) about a half hour from Chez Rock.

The M14 has the benefit of having a serious, knock down round behind it's performance.

The M14 is an op-rod driven, wood stock based weapon that has serious drawbacks on the drawing board.

Yeah. You can spend $2500 and get a tack driving M14. Yes. You can take an M-14 and get it's receiver and barrel done up and be able to perform good shooting groups.

Facts being facts.

The M14 has the same benefits as the AK-47. The M14 has a much, MUCH better round out of the barrel, but the operation is just as reliable, and a little bit better in accuracy, but it has the same basic platform...

I am not convinced, from an accuracy versus dollars standpoint, that this platform is worth my life....

Awww. You have to admit they're alot of fun to shoot. And So what if they cost up to and beyond $2500.00 to make them a tack driver. It's only filthy, dirty, rotten, money.

IMO a bit more than fairly accurate for a semi auto and very reliable as well. The one I have up and running now shoots about a 1" to 1-1/4" at 100 and its a cheesy stock SAI with a near worn out barrel.

Don't sugar coat it JD. I'm guessing you are baiting MattG? Ha.

I have box stock M14's that will shoot MOA. So, while it is easy to spend $2500+++ on a nice M14, it is not necessary.

And the M14 does have AK reliability, as well as the best sights ever fielded.

For a guy who is such a fan of the 1911, I'm surprised you don't have the same affection for the last great battle rifle. They go together like peanut butter and jelly.
