A work in progress...
OK, one from me. Hand rubbed 100% tiger stripe birch stock and full CrazyHorse® configuratoin. A bit more traditional, but rather nice, none the less.
You have good eyes. When SEI built the 101st’s rifles, there was only one non-government rifle in the build. That was this one. It was built at the same time and to the same specifications as the government rifle. It has all the appropriate proof marks. It is quite literally unique in the world.

Absolutely beautiful rifle, Crazyhorse!!!!
Now with improved picture quality.
The M-14 is truly like an old pair of Levi's: "Never goes out of style." Thanks for sharing your pics everyone
O:I remember reading a Soldier of Fortune magazine article about that very incident many years ago. The firefighters were Americans, but the guy with the rifle was a local Bosnian (?) military leader protecting them with his Springfield Armory M1A. He killed the sniper that was firing on the American volunteer firefighters and keeping them pinned down. The UN observers were furious that this guy was shooting in a supposed 'no fire' zone. He told them to fvck off."Sorta off topic. I remember seeing a photograph of an American Firefighter in Sarajevo holding an M-14 or old carbine providing cover from snipers."
I have a Springfied Armory M1A Squad Scout with a Mossy Oak fiberglass stock. It is the perfect length, and balances very nicely. About all I can see adding is a short rail underneath the handguard.
I wish these add-ons were available, back in the day, for my old, long gone, M-14.
All I did was spray the fibreglass stock olive green but she shot a beaut.
Taken at on a zero range IIRC sometime in 1985.
