Today I have several PDF documents revolving around the M-14 Rifle. Included are several military manuals, a blueprint, and a document on accurizing the rifle.
he M14 rifle, officially the United States Rifle, 7.62 mm, M14, is an American automatic rifle that fires 7.62×51mm NATO (.308 in) ammunition. It became the standard-issued rifle for the U.S. military in 1959 replacing the M1 Garand rifle in the U.S. Army by 1961 and the U.S. Marine Corps by 1965 until being replaced by the M16 rifle beginning in 1964.
The M14 was the last American battle rifle issued in quantity to U.S. military personnel. It was replaced by the M16 assault rifle, a lighter weapon using a smaller caliber intermediate cartridge. The M14 rifle remains in limited service in all branches of the U.S. military as an accurized competition weapon, a ceremonial weapon and sniper rifle/designated marksman rifle.
The M14 is the basis for the M21 and M25 sniper rifles which were largely replaced by the M24 Sniper Weapon System. A new variant of the M14, the Mk 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle has been in service since 2002.

If you are interested, all of these gun documents I am posting can be found on the Firearm Manual Disk I have listed to your left. Additionally to the hundreds of documents I have posted, I have hundreds of gun patents (mostly suppressors) as well as class PowerPoints and targets. all for $5.
