M1A: An M14 For The Rest Of Us

    Springfield Armory Inc, released a semi-automatic civilian legal version of the classic M14 service rifle in 1974 using G.I surplus parts. Since then it has been a popular rifle, occupying practical, competitive, hunting, and historical collecting venues throughout the shooting community. It is virtually identical to the M14 it is based on, apart from the select-fire capability. Usually sold with a ten round magazine, the older 20 round and even 25 round magazines will fit the rifle just fine. Although, we see in this video that the 25 round magazines aren’t very reliable at all.
