Yup, throw it on the trash heap of history along with the 1911, the Browning Hi-Power, the Colt Python, the Douglas Skyraider, and the '67 Corvette. All things of great function and great style, too beautiful and classy to live in a world of generic lead dispensers and blobmobiles available in any color you want as long as it's some shade of silver/gray.I'd suggest that Y'all just give up on the antiqued M-14, and all it's variations. It's a dated platform with limited usages and not worthy of your time and research. It isn't part of the future, it's time is long past. Treat the M-14 like any other "Historical Footnote". JMHO.
