  • My new .308 !! (pics)

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to show off my new "I love me" present that I picked up since I passed my test for E-7!

    Had been wanting one of these for a while, and the timing just seemed right.

    The M14 is a relativley heavy gun already, so I didnt want too much additional weight on there from larger, magnified optics. I picked up this Pride Fowler mini red-dot, and stuck it in a Larue LT624 quick disconnect mount that surrounds it in an aluminum "hood" like a mini-Eotech. This setup weighs in at 3 ounces!.

    Very quick up-close, and easy to make hits out to 100 or so. Any need to stretch it farther, and I can flip the lever and switch to irons.

    I added a Sadlak recoil spring guide (just for smoother cycling, the factory one worked fine).

    I am still trying to figure out what sling to get....

    Here she is...

    Very nice...I have wanted an M-14 for a long time. (You know, just to compliment my Garand)

    You've got yourself a fine-looking rifle.

      Fine very hard hitting rifles. I love them.

        I love the pics! But, switch out that EOTech HWS for a scope. .308 is for looooong distance, not CQB. I have a EOTech 556 on my Remington 870-tactical 12ga. For my Bushmaster M-4, I went with the Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T 1-3 x 14mm, sweeeeet!! I would love to buy a M-14, nice gun!

          Thats not an eotech.

          Personally I'd go with an Aimpoint Micro w/ a 2moa dot. Should be easy to make hits out to 2-300yds. at 6ounces....and its probably one of the toughest optics out there.

          Great looking rifle!
