Loved my M-14.
Heavy but it did the job.

I just wish someone would have warned me that you can't just have 1, 5 or more. :o

When I bought this a few years ago it was what S.A. calls the "Scout Squad" 18" BBL model and had a picatinny rail mounted on top.
After taking it out of the safe one night and cutting my hand on the very sharp edged rail, I cussed up a storm and the next day ordered a full length heat shield.
The pic below is the end result of the picatinny rail removed and replaced with the full length heat shield.
I believe the carbine now resembles what used to be known as the "Bush" model.

I'm on my 3rd S.A. M1A, although I never owned more than one at a time.
This is the ONLY rifle that as soon as I sell one, I feel an immediate void in my being that needs fixing.
The two other guns that have a similar effect on me are the S&W 625 .45 ACP and the Ruger Blackhawk .45 ACP/.45 LC.
Very strange.
I am currently lacking a S&W 625.

And I thought I was the only person who felt that way.

I have never owned any weapon that has had that kind of attachment on me until I bought my first M1A years ago. That rifle was a SAInc. standard circa 1990 and was put together in the "Golden Age" of SA as far as most if not all parts were USGI issue as they were quite abundant at that time.

I have owned, used and had the opportunity to fire many rifles in my day, FALs, M1 Garands, ARs of all types etc. very good ones to be sure but I have never had any model that was made "just for me" like the M14 was.

Call me crazy but It just feels..................right.

Oh yeah, it shoots damn good too !
