  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    NOTE: I tried to post pictures, but this BBS does not appear to like Google Drive photos. The links are available, at least. My 7-year-old son likes to do everything I do, and have everything I have, so I traded a pistol for a Mini-14. It was a Tactical version, and got rid of the side-folder...
  2. AR-15 Talk
    The 308 rifle niche was already filled with the M1A, FN/FAL, PTR-91, Remington Woodsmaster, and various bolt action 308 rifles. Heavy Duty SHTF Battle Rifles - AllOutdoor.com I remember reading about the AR-10 decades ago. Why it took so long for an AR platform in 308 Winchester to go main...
  3. New member introduction
    Great to be on here, I know I'm going to like it. I'm a hoplophile and ammosexual. I like long shoots and tactical walks, "slow is smooth and smooth is fast".. former Infantry SSG, and I love Bacon. I get a kick out of Sniper style, snide remarks with sarcastic over tones. (Watch a thread, pop...
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Hello all, and thank you for having me on the forum. I just wanted to share my new (and first) rifle, after having completed all the mods I wanted done with it. Nothing spectacular, but it produced exactly the kind of carbine I was looking for: Started out with a stock 582 Mini-14 Ranch Rifle...

    Representing the M14 family in a contest As far as I know, mine is the only M14 entered in this video contest. Please like it with a thumbs up.
  6. M14 and M1A Talk
    By now, most M14/M1A enthusiasts have read about or seen a bullpup conversion stock for the M14/M1A rifle. The first one I saw was the Bulldog from SRSS, but I never succeeded in buying one... I was approached by a guy named Dino February of 2011 with an offer to try out a new bullpup stock for...

    Hey guys, I'm new, however, I have spent some considerable time browsing here and have been a member over at survivalistboards for awhile now.. I had a quick question about lube for my M1A. I recently bought some Froglube both the Paste and the liquid.. Will the paste work the same as gun...
  8. M14 and M1A Talk
    Whadd'ya say? I'm about to get a Socom 16. I'm wondering if it's okay to shoot steel through these instead of brass - a friend warned me that I risk damaging my gun because the steel is tougher on the firing pin or something like that. Myth? Does the cheapness of Wolf (etc) mitigate the...
  9. FN-FAL Talk
    i am looking to get a 308 semi auto and i am between the fal or the m1a. it will be used for target/plinking. can anyone give pros/cons and explain the difference between inch and metric pattern. price is really not an issue as the m1a is in the 1500 range.
  10. Rifles Misc
    A while back I was told that a good AR-10 lasts longer than an M-1A. The person who told me does a lot of shooting. He said that the M-1A is a little bit more accurate but that after so many, I think he said 10K rounds, it has to be completely re-worked or re-built. What says the group here? Any...
  11. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    What steps do I need to take. (parts to buy) to turn my Tactical Mini in to a M1A SOCOM clone? Pictures would be great. I have been thinking about what to do with this rifle and I don't want to turn it into another AR. It had its own mystique. Thanks JRC
  12. Rifles Misc
    Getting ready to buy a .308 semi. Heart is set on a 1981 Hk91 for $1800. Also lokked at a nib standard m1a for $1300? Hk seems to be a bit more reliable and able to take abuse, also cheap mags. M1a more accurate but $50 mags, no bayonet lug, to long for close quarters but $500 cheaper.
  13. Rifles Misc
    Ok, I've seen countless threads about this. But my question is a little different. I've always liked the FAL, but I've already got a G3 clone. Both .308, but which is a more reliable and more accurate rifle? Ergos, fun and ease of loading are factors as well. Recoil doesn't bother me, I'm...
  14. M14 and M1A Talk
    I have always wanted one, was getting all spun up to build one off of an LRB receiver, but found this one FS over at the firing line awhile back, so just had to have it..... The rifle was built by LRB Arms. Here is the break down : Receiver : M14SA LRB ARMS Barrel : Criterion 18.5in...

    She decided to wear desert camo for this picture and wouldn't let me take the pic of the boys without getting into to the shot ... spoiled. In the middle, he is an Art Cavanaugh custom build, Kreiger barrel, TRW trigger group, ARMSCORP M21 receiver, yada yada. On the bottom, the stepbrother...
  16. M14 and M1A Talk
    There are so many conflicting posts & replies here regarding which ammunition is correct for the Springfield M1A. Some people say either round is ok, some insist there is a significant difference between the two. What's worse is that the rifle is often listed at places like Buds Guns or Gun...

    One of these rifles will probably be my next purchase. Which one would you get? Please tell me why? I love the action and presently own a mini and a Garand. I will be using this rifle mainly for target and maybe a hog hunt. Thanks in Advance
