Yeah, that was Bizarre! The M14 is Glued/Bedded into the Sage EBR Chassis !?Someone smarter than me is going to have to explain the glueing procedure of my Rockola into the Sage chassis for me
Maybey I should join and cross post the question at arfcom
In the real world, when making a product, there's only three people whose opinion count: (1) the consumer, (2) the consumer, and (3) the consumer.Infantrymen from every branch fielding a DMR in combat have nothing but praise for the guns’ performance in the vast expanses of Iraq and Afghanistan.
You reminded me of the other part of his article I forgot to mentionWhile I like the M4 and M16A2 type carbine/rifle.
I still prefer the M14.
Once I got the EBR setup correctly, it's stayed accurate.....rock solid, stayed accurate.
His comments about the M1 Carbine were a little bizarre. Carbine's recoil, awe come on dude, really ? I doubt he's owned or shot one.....I have.
The lasting tribute to the M14 is it's dirt and dust indifferent.
Very true, my Marine was awarded a Bronze Star "V" for his actions with a M39 M14 in AstanNothing really interesting in the article, clearly the writer is pro mouse gun. I will agree the M14 is way more expensive eliminating most from shooting it in competition. I will agree it was never designed to be a sniper rifle and making it fit that role is best left to the government or folks with deep pockets(very expensive).
The good news is when built from the ground up as a sniper rifle(such as the XM25,M25) it will keep up with the best of the best. It is rugged and dependable but best of all it is hard hitting out at distances the AR15/M16 can only dream about.
Those who depend on this rifle to saves lives (DMR) speak only praise, that in and of itself speaks volumes!
Oh just in case you guys were wondering, I won't be trading in my M14s anytime soon.
