A Spugly-looking rifle

Semi-auto Springfield Armory M1A sitting in a genuine M14A1E2 stock. This rifle also has a non-functional repro selector switch. As close as you can get to the real thing on our budget!

This was the Army’s final shot at trying to make the M14 also function in the tactical slot owned by the BAR, that of the squad automatic rifle. Unfortunately, the basic M14 didn’t have enough heft, and the rate of fire was too high for the average rifleman to usefully control the beast in the full-auto mode, and so this never saw widespread issue.

A grumpy old Cincinnatus who feeds goats, dogs, cats, ducks, peafowl, a horse, and sundry avians, especially in the winter. From time to time you will see guns. Until such time as the Progressives repeal the 2nd Amendment, everything you see is legal, Federal, State, Local, where I live. Your progressive paradise may have different rules. Don't project them onto me. Federalism still exists, even if it is but a shadow of what the Framers intended.
