M14 / M1A

The M14 , or AKA in civilian attire, M1A. The son of the Garand. The “improved” Garand, as some may say. All but in retirement till it found it’s place into today’s confrontations. Known for it’s accuracy and being able to reach out and to take care of business much more effectively than the M16 / M4 platforms. The rifle of choice by our brave men and woman serving our great country, when the long distance call needs to be made and the 1st and follow up shots need to count.
