agreed. i dont get it. when the competition was announced, everyone was so gun-ho about the whole thing. the number of votes was disappointing but even more disappointing was the number of submissions.I'm rather disappointed at the turn out for this poll. Out of the 900+ members that visit the forum daily, only 43 voted over the course of 17 days. For those who participated, thanks for supporting the event. For those who didn't, why didn't you? For the three contenders, all of your rifles look great, it's unfortunate but there can be only one. Congratulations B 2/75 for winning the very first M14 of the Month Competition.
