I'm in the process of acquiring my first (and, if I do it right, only) M14 style rifle. I found this board while looking for more info about hueygunner's "aerospace" stock.

I grew up around firearms (my uncle was the rangemaster at the local gun club) and served in the Army ('83-'86). I just got back into guns in the last seven or eight years, starting with an M16A1 style AR. I enjoy US military style weapons, and an M14 clone will fill the gap between my postwar CMP Springfield Garand and my M16A1 clones, and will complement my GI style 1911.

I also enjoy shooting rifles "the old fashioned way" with a sling and iron sights--Getting hits off a bench or bipod with magnification just isn't as satisfying. One of these days I want to get to an Appleseed event.

I was planning to buy an LRB M14SA rifle with the medium weight Criterion barrel and NM modifications directly from LRB arms until I discovered hueygunner's stock. Now I'm planning to buy a barreled action from LRB and put it in hueygunner's stock. I haven't decided what to do about a trigger group.

I look forward to learning from you.

Yea . . . I know . . . This is how I got black rifle disease. Just one AR as close to the M16A1s I was issued in the army without too much red tape. Now I'll have a hard time fitting my first 14 clone in the safe, let alone subsequent ones. GI8

Welcome aboard Essayons. It always warms my heart to hear about another M1A shooter in my neck of the woods.

Welcome to the forum from NorCal. I fear that you will find that the platform is kind of like potato chips, once you get the taste you can't have just one. Have fun exploring.

Welcome aboard fellow Washingtonian. There are JCGarand matches in WA, just for the type of shooting you enjoy - iron sights with belly on the ground.

Welcome aboard, Essayons, if there is one thing you are going to learn from being here it's that you will need more than one M14. GI2 I'm sure you will enjoy the forums and being here with us, have fun.

That's something I've wanted to try. I've got a postwar Service Grade Springfield Armory Garand that shoots pretty straight.
