At 80 years old I finally bought my own M14, a Bula Defense national match 19.5 inch barrel. It has been a few years since I last had one in my hands. I’m still teaching this pup how to behave. It has a few bad habit, like failure to go into battery on occasion, but it does manage 3 inch 20 round groups over open sights at 50 yards. I haven’t taken it out to a 100 yard range yet.
