  1. The M14
    So I'm taking apart the gas system on my M1A the other day, finally got the shims to make sure the gas lock properly indexs on the gas tube. And as I'm taking it apart I realized the O-ring on my plug is missing. No idea what happened to it. I just want to know some thoughts on if I should...
  2. The M14
    Hey friends, Happy Holidays to you and your families. It's been a long time, and hope you're all well. Sometime ago, I purchased this NIB Bishop walnut stock from Mr. Kurt C. here on the forum and the excellent condition walnut handguard from another member whom I cannot recall at the moment...
  3. The M14
    Hello, I do not own any guns because of where I live. I have land in SE US so I'll be moving once my house is ready and my fav gun since I was about 10 has been the M14 and when I saw they make it but it is called the M1A, I fell in love. I wanted to buy a M1A Loaded but now I am hearing from...
  4. The M14
    I just bought a new M1A Standard from Springfield Armory and I’ve put about 100 rounds through it a few days ago. I have a Delta14 stock on it and I’m running OEM Springfield Armory 20 round magazines. The stock is a bit tight fitting, and sometimes the bolt will get caught while I’m hand...

    Hi guys, I've been considering glass bedding my M1A that is currently sitting in a standard walnut stock from Springfield. I decided to let a gunsmith do it for me so I call one up and ask him for a quote on glass bedding. He asked if my stock had a metal liner in it. I was not sure what that...

    Hi, New to the platform and new to the forum here. I was wondering whether anyone here with has 6.5 has run a shorter barrel than the standard 22". I prefer shorter barrels for maneuverability--both in terms of weight and getting through brush, etc., so I'm considering cutting my M1A in 6.5...
  9. Ammunition
    Anyone else tried this IMI stuff specifically? Stocking up for NJ. I don’t want to run dry and have to deal with the ammo purchasing while there. Got a decent deal on these, nothing 2021 crazy. Still reloading but it’s nice to have a few neat boxes for a rainy day. I’ve been pleased with IMI...
  10. Modern M14
    Hello All, I bought a Springfield Scout Squad and was looking at putting a sage chassis on it in the future, at the certified dealers it asks medium or heavy barrel and have searched around and can't find a definite answer to which it would be, I assume it would be a medium barrel and that heavy...
  11. Modern M14
    Good morning, I split my time at work between a feed truck and a saddle. For years I’ve had Winchesters, both 94 and 70, in circulation until seven years ago when my “girlfriend’s dad,” now my father-in-law, gifted me a Ruger Guide in ‘06. These made splendid truck guns, which I’ve come to...
  12. The M14
    Evening guys, At the range, a wicked breeze picked up and basically stirred up a sandstorm throughout the range. My M1A unfortunately got hit with the full brunt of it and was covered in sand/dust. The optic was easy enough to clean, and the stock/barrel was easily wiped down. But the action...

    Hi, I originally wanted to buy an AR15 or a bullpup, but CA's AWB came out and I needed a rifle, so I bought a standard M1A for a very good deal for about $1,400. After a few years, I decided to work on the M1A and build it up with the Blackfeather RS chassis along with the LSP. I had a lot of...

    I could go with a receiver mount but wanted to try the front rail system too. I have a picatinny extension in, and a cantilever mount for my crossfire II 2x7 scout scope. it feels sturdy enough, and my sight picture with my cheek riser is perfect. Want to hear other recommendations / advice
  15. The M14
    All, Background: I have recently inherited an M1A SOCOM 16 from my grandfather who recently passed away. I am looking at using this rifle for hog (this summer and fall) and deer hunting this season as well. I have plenty of experience with the M16/M4A1 platform and regular bolt action rifles...
