Notice some if the details, this photo really sums up the shortcomings of the M14 (and consequently Mini 14) rifles. Difficulty mounting optics, contamination of the op rod channel, wandering zero (the adjustment caps are removed because the is such a problem).

Pretty sure I have seen this pic before btw.

(Edit)

Yep, this guy.






Pooular guy, that buddy of yours.
Per chance, is that you in the pic?
Nope, while combat camera was taking those photos, I was with the EOD team watching them rig the weapons cache in a cave. My picture was later in the day when the weather window was closing. Thanks for posting those photos though, I'd love to see more from that mission and time.

This still going?

Why do I like my mini 14?

It's been reliable, easy to use, and it's accurate enough up to 50 yards, which is all I'll ever need it for.

If you're asking more of it you're asking too much
