    Hello! I'm fairly new here, only ever forum I've been on was the Ak Files and even then I've yet to make an introductory post. Just picked up my M14S a few weeks ago, price was just right. I'm more a historic collector than a target shooter (maybe because I'm not very good at it) and I hoped...

Now I know about the "soft" bolt thing. These IDE's had better bolts, but the headspacing issues make shooting 308 commercial a...
  7. Jtactical Rogue stock vs Sage Stock.

    Modern M14
    I have been doing a lot of research in choosing a good stock for my Polytech m14s. Warbird is in the process of sending back my m14S and I should have it tomorrow. So the last item on the agenda is to get a good tactical stock. I was really close to buying a Sage EBR stock when I came upon the...
