Just wanted to say hi, I've been shooting for years and just purchased my first M1A Scout. Looking forward to learning all I can from you guys, these rifles are very new to me.

Welcome on board David, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great weekend.

Welcome from Virginia. My first was a Scout, too. This is a great place to learn and exchange info on our rifles.

Shoot and enjoy

Thanks everyone, I'll be asking a lot of questions, first thing is getting these mag to insert into the mag well freely.

Again, thanks for the warm welcome!

having trouble with the magazines? who makes them?
Hi and thanks for the welcome.

The mags I have are made by Check-Mate, I have been reading a lot about the problems others are having with the same issue. Also the rifle is still very new, maybe 25 rounds ran through it. I was at the range sighting it in and had a "double tap" with it, Got some really strange looks at the range. I have purchased new brass, mil spec primers and this weekend I will be reloading more ammo for it between tying flies.

I think I just need too get every thing broke in. going to take things one step at a time. The first step, I would think would just be just inserting and removing the mags I have.

I am open for more suggestions.
