Awards Showcase

The weight is an obvious downside, but the end of the world toughness makes up for it.
The only real downside is if you live in CA, Sage WILL NOT send you parts regardless, you have to find some other "Authorized dealer", and it is a PITA. Happy shooting!

Buy chassis, put an Mrad/Mildot First Focal Plane optic on it (Vortex, Bushnell Elite, Weaver Tactical, etc etc), throw on a bipod or other things you might need, develop a 175g SMK load or buy FGGM 175g, Zero rifle at 400 or 500 yards, have friend put 5 or so 6 foot by 2 foot wood targets up at random distances from 300-1100 yards, start ranging and start shooting, most fun you will ever ever have with an EBR I promise. Especially when you use the MRADS available to you for hold overs and not do the lame elevation clicks.

Oh might want to stop by walmart and grab a 1$ Chinese calculator, a thing of paper, and a pack of pens while you are at it.

I love my sage. No down sides for me other then if I want to switch stocks I have to take off the oprod guide from the barrel and reinstall a different one, so my scout is pretty much dedicated to the sage.

It's no big deal as I have several m14's but I do like to switch stock ps sometimes and the sage takes a proprietary oprod guide.

Thanks from Carnivore

six clicks,

I can see how switching op rod guide is disconcerting when changing stocks.

The only downside to the EBR imo. But that is why you have your EBR and another m14 for something more traditional or something. It gives you an excuse to buy another.

Yes, good point. Once I put the Sage on, I plan to keep it on. I'll use other M14s for other things.

$$ and weight is my only gripe. Turned my 3-4 moa scout into ~1-1.5 moa gun.

Also, there is something about a wood and steel M14 that gets lost with a chassis.

As if I needed an excuse, but yes I do have others and yes I'm running out of excuses.
