i just don't want people to see this rifle and think that all that crap can be slapped on a rifle without sacrificing many points in the weight department.

Can someone post up pic and specs for a "light" M1A?

I'm just saying. :wink: They aren't light to start with.


Tacti-cool just makes it worse, but the OPs money is green and his zombie killing needs knows no limit.

Nice rifle
Ho, there, foul monster!

I like it. I like it in Magpul too.

12 Lbs? Heck, if I modded it out and it tipped the scales at 12 lbs I'd go on a diet, lose 6 lbs and tell the wife "Look, now the load-out's the same!"

Don't care what nobody sez... that baby's better than a $4000 coke habit. Rock on AC45.

My brother, has a socom II his wife bought him for Christmas, the sob is sweet! Hey, ac45 wants to play by his rules? Let him play! Who are any of us to say it's not viable. I can think of a lot of weapons I'd trade for it, including a lot of Ar's. You're concerned about how heavy it is? Do some exercises, end of problem. Me? I can't afford it, but hey, I can dream.

If you want a lighter, more modern stock you can also check out this guy. He does some pretty awesome work without adding too much weight. I played with his CQB stock at a M14 workshop and i was really impressed.

I've never ordered from SG online. I learned a long time ago to call them to make sure the items I want are actually in stock so I didn't have to wait 3 months to finally find out my order had been cancelled. I have found a few nuggets of gold amongst the shit they sell but it's getting to be a rare occasion.
I've gotten a lot of stuff from SG. Their ammo prices used to be pretty good. About 2 years ago they had a pretty smokin' deal on G3 mags. 12 mags plus pouches and a cleaning kit for $18.99. Some were new, some were not, some were steel. I got them mostly as a speculative move, in case there was another hi-cap ban. I have more, new in wrapper, that are in my SHTF kit.

I wonder why Magpul doesn't make M-14 mags. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

If its a placeholder scope, no worries, I'd do the same just to shoot the dang thing before I got the optics I wanted.
You're obviously a noobie since you can't seem to comprehend the tacticool factor of using a non-mangified optic so that proper basic marksmanship can be ignored or bypassed completely. You also seem to think that these non-magnified optics, which are meant more for sub-machine guns in burst and pray CQB shouldn't be used on a rifle meant to hit things beyond 500 yards.

I don't know what you'll come up next asking. For all I know, you may think it is improper to tie telephone cords to two Hi-Point C9 and use them as nunchuck when they stop working. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I have a question for the OP, if your rifle weight so much then you would be a slow moving target verses being able to out maneuver and out shoot someone. The point of plastic furniture is to keep weight down. I see you have a lot of sleeves/shells hanging onto your rifle. Since it's a zombie rifle, you are probably going to be on high ground plinking away like Andy from the roof top. Here is something I am aiming for:

Maybe not exactly what you were looking for, but this info I have may be of interest.

As taken from the book(s) Small Arms of the World

M14, original service form: 8.7 lbs


and just for comparison,

M1 Garand: 9.5 lbs
Soviet SKS: 8.8 lbs
British SMLE no.1Mk3: 8.62
FN FAL: 9.06*
* Lowest end, variations in barrel, furniture, etc., would increase weight

And those weights are without ammo.

Most combat rifles loaded weight over 9 lbs

Personally I'm less concerned about weight (to a point) than I am with balance. Light also doesn't absorb recoil as well.

The OPs gun will absorb a lot of recoil....;)

Agreed. It has "spacegun flair."

Needs a camo pattern lifted from some kind of sci-fi.

That is one sweet looking piece, mang!

I was thinking of getting a Norinco m-14 clone. Plenty of fire power...they also make clones of the 1911. 1911 is a good design..tried and true

Slick choice of stock to go with the shorty barrel, very nice. Welcome to the Troy MCS club. :D
