Semi-automatic M14 type rifle picture thread

Semi-automatic M14 type rifles include Norinco, Poly Tech, SEI, LRB and others with 'M14'
stamped on the receiver... the better known Springfield Armory, Inc. M1A is also included.

All are welcome, traditional or modernized, mild or wild, let's see pictures of what you have.





Two of mine:

M21A5 light


USN Crazy Horse MK14 Mod 0 type SEI


M14 HOMELAND DEFENSE WEAPONS

H2O MAN's addiction to M14s

Fine looking boom stick!

About 20 threads survived 'the change' and the M14/M1A picture thread wasn't one of them.

Those are some great-looking rifles! Here's my Loaded M1A that has a mixture of SAI and USGI parts. Must have been made about the time they began running out of surplus parts. Either way it's a fantastic shooter.

OK, I'll replay this one

Since this pic was taken, I've added a Blueforce 2-point sling.

madcratebuilder, I like those pictures... new pictures are always appreciated, but - have you changed the rifles since taking those pictures?


Another from my EBR collection, the CQB-16 type SEI
This is probably the most suppressor friendly M14 made.

What a great picture !!!

The only time I ever envied a Marine, is when a company of them, marched past our ship, with the new M14's slung on their shoulder. It was quite a sight ....


Be Safe !!!

DaveP - you have half a dozen? You can stack arms twice (if they had stacking swivels).

As pictured with the suppressor and 50 rounds in the drum mag?




I'll put it on the digital scale and post the weight later today

UPDATE:

The rifle weighs 19 lbs. as pictured... the drum mag alone weighs 5 lbs. 0.7 oz. with 50 rounds of Portuguese NATO surplus inside.

Thanks for the update SR420. Too heavy for my liking so I would just look at it lovingly and trailer it to the bench
