NEW The NEW M14 Complete Owner’s Guide – How to select, configure, operate, maintain and upgrade your own M1A or other M14-type rifle by Walt Kuleck. WHY A NEW M14 COMPLETE OWNER’S GUIDE? This book is the latest volume in the Scott A. Duff Publications’ Guide series. The NEW M14 Complete Owner’s Guide is like the other Guides; its purpose is to give the new M1A or M14 owner a head start towards an in-depth understanding of the history, operation, maintenance, upgrading and use of his or her rifle, while providing the experienced owner knowledge that they don’t yet have, with the intent of giving even the expert new insights into the M14-type rifle. Imagine that it’s December 1941; the US has entered World War II, reluctantly but steadfastly. As Japanese forces storm Wake Island and the Philippines, our troops recognize the inadequacy of the M1903 Springfield and M1 Garand. The GIs in the field clamor for a more effective weapon; in response, the Army begins to retrieve M1888 Trapdoors from War Reserve storage and issues them to the eagerly awaiting infantry. The Trapdoor’s hard-hitting .45 caliber 405-grain lead bullet really puts the enemy down the way the .30-’06 can’t. Absurd? Of course. Yet, after the infamous attacks of 11 September 2001, something not so different happened. The US Rifle, Cal. 7.62-MM, M14 began to pop up like mushrooms after a summer rain, in both stateside Army units and, as we deployed to Afghanistan and later Iraq, in-theater. The reason? None other than that the M14’s hard-hitting .30-caliber 150-grain bullet puts the enemy down the way the 5.56-MM can’t! The Purpose of This Book As a consequence of the Global War on Terror, the M14 and its semiautomatic civilian analogues are experiencing a renaissance in popularity, variety and effectiveness
