IMHO, the best damn gun in the land.

I bought mine back in February and I can't imagine NOT owning one now. Love it, love it, love it.

I saw a M1A Socom II on the wall at Gander Mountian (Henretta) this week.... Just a mere 2,200!

If you are in the market for a M14 pattern rifle give LRB arms your serious consideration. Their receivers are forged where Springfield Armory receivers are cast. Additionally I believe the LRB rifles have a higher USGI parts count than the Springfield Armory rifles.
LRB OF LONG ISLAND, INC

I own three M14 pattern rifles, one is a Springfield Armory receiver and the other two are built on LRB receivers. They all shoot very well and I am convinced this pattern represents the apex of battle rifle design.


I'd strongly suggest you to avoid the 16-inch versions (SOCOM). What you lose in sight radius and velocity for the sporty looks just isn't worth it. The 18-inch rifle pictured delivers similar velocities to the longer barrel due to its tight bore but there is still a substantial reduction in sight radius.

After watching the 10th annual sniper competition, I'm torn between this and a 7.62 OBR. The accuracy on those things was just ridiculous.

My m14 didnt come with a detachable mag and had a manly 3006 chambering. M14 sucks! My rifle is so awesome that it lets me know when it is empty! You kids and your silly new tech stuff.

The M14 pattern rifle makes a poor sniper rifle.
R U sure bout that?

Even standard m1a's can get 1 MOA at 600+ yrs if built properly using the right kind of ammo and thats a conservative estimate.

Miltary snipers can drop men at 1000+ yrds with the mk14 ebr's all day. I believe the correct platfrom is the MK14 mod 0.

I must first I do not have a M14 or M1a but last week I transferred two both Springfield for a customer who belongs to a local club that shoots 500 and 1,000 yrd matches and he said the one M1a was going to be used for his competitions using iron sites. So I am assuming the M1a is adequate to spend the cash he did on them. I would love to have one in my collection.

If you show me a "standard M1a" that can do 1 MOA at 600 yards I will have your baby, crap out a purple billy goat sell all of my guns and move to a hippy commune and take up communism.

1 MOA at 600 yards is a circle about 6.5 inches across. that doesn't seem impossible. if somebody does do it what guns will you be selling?
