From the Netherlands

New to the world of the M14.

The M14 has been on my wishlist for a long time, came acros a Luxdeftec M14 for a reasonable price and bought it. Have to get it on my permit first before i can take it home, and because of the lockdown that may take a few months. But can't wait to shoot with it.

Other guns i own are a Taurus revolver in 357magnum, a Canik TP9FXS with reddot, a Rockola 30M1 and a K98 in 308. Not into the modern guns like the AR15 and so on.

The K98 is a sniper version with a ZF scope wich i replaced with a Vortex, switching the Vortex for the ZF and going to mount the Vortex on the M14.

Other things i do in my spare time are my 1972 Volkswagen Beetle sleeper and my 1998 Buell M2.



Thanks from stoky, nf1e, XM25Ren and 4 others

Welcome from Alabama. Looking forward to a picture when you get to pick up your new rifle. I don’t recognize Luxdeftec. Is it made in Luxembourg?

Thanks from Rookie M14

Welcome from Germany!

I am a proud and pleased owner of a Luxdeftec too, a very fine rifle, which I shoot with iron sights.

To the year 2005 I was owner of a 1972 beetle 1200, which I reilly loved. But the former owners didnt enough for it, so I selled it to someone who had skills in repairing cars.

Many years ago I was owner of two Opel Mantas, that brings me to the export hit from the Nederlands: The New Kids. In Germany they have a reilly huge fan base, and I love them, waitin hard for the 3rd movie.

Thanks from unkola and Rookie M14

My ex-wife still has her '68 VW Bug that she bought right after high school in '71. When we were married it was her daily driver. In '97 we did a body off restoration on it. Came out great. She doesn't drive as much now because she's taking care of her 92y/o mother and uses another larger car. She told me last month that she went ahead and let her brother-in-law do another resto on it. -Lloyd
