With all the 'new fangled' M-14 type rifles being pictured (which are all awesome, btw) I felt compelled to show the other end of the spectrum - Old school!

Rifle on the left is a 1990 vintage M1A all GI (TRW & Winchester)


Rifle on the right is a 2000 vintage all commerical except the stock and 9/62 HRA barrel. I have a lugged suppressor waiting for this rifle for the day I move from this hell hole - I mean state. GI1

For what it's worth, the newer rifle embarrases the older one in accuracy.






Thanks!

Like you say 'they all look awesome' but I sure do like Old School. Wood and steel, that's about as good as you get. Thanks for the pics.

Hello twobravo,

Nice collection you have. looks very nice. How do the older one's shoot? Wish we could have them here in The Netherlands.

I enjoy seeing all the '14 pattern rifles our members post but my favorites have to be the "traditional style" rifles, I'm just old myself, I guess. Very nicely done!

M14 1959

Hello twobravo,

I know the H&R is good, but as we are not allowed to have more then 5 guns in The Netherlands, you have to make choices in what you can get. Further more are not that much M4teens for sale in Europe. Most people who buy a M14 have this gun for life.......

Greets, michelbouts

Sorry about your limits. At least for now we do not have that problem. I have 19 M1 Garands now and I plan on going to the CMP south store in March to pick up more.
