Very nice, you will enjoy shooting it! I have two. One an SAI Standard and the other is a Rock Ola/Bula that I bought as a barreled receiver and put together, they are great shooters.

No need to stop now. I have nailed a few more together since that photo. The bottom 4 in this photo were done the first week of this month after I came back from vacation.

Do you get the chance to shoot all of those Art?

Sure do. My 200 - 300 yd range is about a hundred feet out my front door.
Was just out running some M118 through the new shorty.

Brother maxaks: Welcome to the M-14 Cult. It looks as if you picked a good one with which to enter, having USGI parts and all. Get plenty of ammo and mags for it as well as the proper maintenance tools. M-14's like to stay clean.

Looks like National Match sights on that baby, as well. Nice rifle! I don't know what you traded for it, but I'll recon you got the better end of the deal. :beer:
