Thanks Rem1..... I took the liberty of doing some magic on two of the pics so the mount and scope show up better

Question for you Marines out there. In the last photo it shows Marines at parade rest with their fingers wrapped around the barrel/gas system on their M14's. I never paid attention to the Marines with their M1's from 8th&I at joint service ceremonies so I don't remember if they did the same thing. I was in the Army (Honor Guard Co., The Old Guard) and we did not wrap our fingers around the barrel/gas system. Our fingers were extended (like a salute) with the barrel gripped between our thumb and the palm of our hand. We didn't wrap the fingers of our right hand around the stock at present arms either. Only at port arms and right shoulder arms did we wrap (bend) the fingers of our right hand. Just curious. Oh, we had slings (pretty white ones) and no magazines. I was in the marching platoon but I guess for funerals the firing parties had to have magazines and I don't remember if they had slings on or not.

If you look at the bottom of the first pic he has another M-14 propped against the wall.

Its great to see what this rifle is really meant to be used for. Its like watching a B52 in flight both are almost as old.

I have a picture of the Honor Guard at the Danny Dietz memorial dedication but I haven't posted enough here to put pics on. I'll come back when I think of four more things to say.

Doesn't look like I got the link right on the above post, let's see if this one works. This is a sniper from the 1/24 Striker brigade in Diyala from Michael Yon's web magazine. He has an M14 but also has a cartridge holder on the stock for individual rounds.

Hello,
I looked at the picture. I think the picture you are talking about is a group of Marines in formation who are not apart of any unique drill team like The Old Guard. The Marines in the pic were most likely told to fall into formation and instead of your M16 use this M14. The average Marine doesn't get trained to drill with an M14 so we use "muscle memory" back to what we know...which is how to handle/drill with an M16. I was stationed at two different locations which had M14's for color guards only and there was no special instructions with the M14. Hope this answers your question. Take care, Joel GySgt USMC
