Do you guys think it would be OK to put a Redfield USMC M40 on my M14 and use it in a pretty much informal 500 yd sniper match? This match is loosely restricted to vintage military sniper rifles.

Who is to say there NEVER was an M14 in Nam that had a Redfield M40 mounted? I know there will be someone that will whine about the setup.

It may have been experimented with, but the Redfield 3-9 scope used on the M40 was never issued on an M14. It's a pretty good scope within it's limitations and I think it would work well on an M14 type rifle. It's drawback is that you cannot dial in range changes like you can on modern tactical scopes.
