On saturday I just picked up a National Match M14 on loan from the CMP for use in this years high power competitions. I plan to fire in as many events as I can (most are on sundays, which I will not compete in) and more importantly it gives me a chance to really get to know the M14. This will be great as I prepare to possibly build a SC-DMR.

Yea, but here they are again.





Notice the lack of bayonet lug, and the flash suppresser is replaced with a muzzel brake to make it California legal. Taking those off makes it a much less evil weapon, and makes me less prone to go on a shooting spree.

Putting a bayonet on that rifle would twist your mind up, and make you go cold steel on the mall when it's packed with the elderly. Bad assault weapon, bad!

Thanks for the pics, I missed out on them the first go-round.

The "California legal" muzzle break actually works better than the traditional "Flash supressor" on the M-14 style rifles. Thats why Springfield Armory stuck the muzzle break on the M-25 Carlos Hathcock rifle and not the "flash supressor".
