After seeing SmilingWolf's take on his arsenal, I'd figure I'd take this for a spin. I live in the United States and nearby to several gun stores and an air force base which may or may not have weapons and ammunition. Let's begin, shall we?
I do not own any firearms, but I have handled several and these come from my own personal experience and the experience of others.
The M1A is a variant of a tried and true American battle rifle. It fires 7.62x51 NATO ammunition. The M1A is what can be considered a civilian variant of the original M14.
- Ammunition is plentiful. SInce it fires not only the 7.62 NATO round but the .308 Winchester, I can replenish all over, not just off of dead soldiers or at military bases.
- Very accurate.
- Quite a long weapon. Heavy as well, weighing in at 11.8 pounds with a full magazine.
- Rails and other attachments aren't right out of the box for this weapon.
- Very complex, meaning if you need to fix it you might be stuck
Mk14EditA modernized variant of the M14, it is better than the M1A I listed earlier.
- Telescoping stock means shorter weapon.
- Rails are default.
- Usually equipped with a scope.
- Very ergonomic.
- (See M1A)
- None that I can think of.
That's all for now, you guys. I shall update it later.
