Big M14 fan here!
The M1 Carbine stock is a Ramline. Fun to shoot for the whole family.
My wife is recovering from a shoulder surgery, so she cant blast away with her M1A quite yet. She is pullin the trigger on the 10-22, and the M1Carbine till it heals up some more.
Water logged bullets aint much fun.....
Your's looks like they be gettin baked out in that sun. (Rumor has it that UV rays can cause gun cancer. Send um to me and I'll see if I can save um for ya..........
Yeah, all of mine get baked in the sun, bro. Ha. That is why I use light colors. Keeps them cool in the dez.
I had one of my parkerized USGI M14 mags, and one that I had painted tan laying on the ground in the sun a couple of years ago. Picked up the tan one and it was fine. Then grabbed the parked one and almost branded myself. Hilarious, but such a difference. I paint almost everything now. Guns, scopes, stocks, binos, spotting scopes, tripods. They all get painted. Makes them easier to use, and they are all just tools anyway. I came home with my brand new Yamaha ATV a couple of years ago, drove it off the trailer and started masking off the areas that needed to be painted. Anything black got painted "Coyote", which works in the dez and still fits in with the terrain in Utah where we hunt.
I hope your wife's shoulder heals fast. Thanks for your offer of "chemo" for my guns. I'll keep you posted. Your Krylon job looks a lot like my B&C stock on one of my sporterized 1917's (in Coyote).
