Like many of you have already recounted, I too was first introduced to the M1 through my grandfather's service rifle.(10th Mountain) Seeing it hanging in his study and together shooting it on Memorial and Veterans Day are some of my fondest memories growing up. My interests carried over to the M14/M1A and FINALLY purchased my own Scout Squad on New Years Eve. Could not of been more impressed and satisfied with my purchase. Nothing a novice like myself could possibly convey to others that the 50+ year service record doesn't already demonstrate on its own. Anyway, fairly basic Springfield Armory Scout Squad in composite black stock. I did decide on a fairly affordable optic and went with the CrossFire II Scout. Thinking of a couple mods perhaps down the road. Also looking for a couple of pre-ban 20 round mags, so if anyone out there has a couple let me know. Did inquire about a few in the PX Thread. That's about it, great to be part of the forum, thanks to the administrators for providing this resource.
Welcome on board Bruce70, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great week ahead.
Welcome from your northern neighbor. I have a boatload of 20 rd mags. Some pre ban, most new CMI mags. If you're not too far away we could do a face to face in the future. For pre bans I only have a couple USGI Borg Warner made mags though. I'm in Manchester, NH.
