Lightbulb What are you guys talking about? M14 Parts Identification and Nomenclature

This for the new guys who have a hard time keeping up with what we are all talking about.

Here's the first picture and I'll add more as time permits.

Mods, If you don't mind, could this be a sticky?

If anyone else needs specific pictures and names of specific parts, please let us know.











Thanks,
Tony.

Thanks from Different, CAVman, Bamban and 32 others

Tony,

I hate to pick nits but your nomenclatures are obviously wrong. I don't see an upper, gas tube, or... "flash hider" anywhere in your diagrams.

Just kidding, obviously.

For folks new to the M14, but familiar with the AR

Thanks from tonyben

This should be a sticky. I'm sick of newbies calling a barreled action "a complete upper receiver"

Thanks from tonyben and Cody M1A

Okay, I changed one of the images in post number 1 and added the rear sight image.

I had to do something while I was on the plane. ;)
