  1. 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...
  2. Gunsmithing
    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

  8. The SOCOM Rifle
    So before we get into the Why anyone would want to use the M1D style scope mount on an M1A, I want to get into the How can it mounted or is it possible? I’ve looked up everything I can about both the mount and the rifle and was easily able to find a repro mount and scope. The trouble I’m running...

    So I’m nuts, I understand collections grow, I didn't need another M1A, but..... a 1987 Super Match popped up for sale with a really nice “buy now” price. The seller seemed knowledgeable in the post and had several hundred good reviews. Only four pictures but it looked promising. I understand it...

  16. The M14
    I’m gonna ask, though I might get slapped through my screen.... Do I dare relocate my Loaded M1A into a NM stock while keeping the EBR op rod block in place to help secure it? I realize I’ll have to notch out my NM stock but I’m wondering what kind of accuracy I’ll see out of it. Dare I say...
