    After a fruitful practice shoot this weekend, 187-4X offhand and a couple of quality 2+1 standing to sitting drills, I figured I'd post a couple of pics of the rifle in question.
    This is "my" rifle,

    And here are some of it's armory roommates I checked out for a couple of my teammates.

    The fine armorers at NSWC Crane Indiana.

    They are Navy weapons, available to members of Navy & Marine Corps Shooting teams.

    I shot a couple that looked just like some of those back in the day when I shot with the Navy at China Lake. Is that Firm Grip I see on the stocks?

    My Favorite was the fat stocked wood gun.

    Why, yes it is. And I also liked the fat wood on "my" rifle. She's a Winchester by the way. The trigger has easy weight with a distinct 2nd stage which breaks very cleanly. If I could stop trying to snatch x's, then I would be good to go.

    The fat wood M-14 I had was a Springer. I almost cried when I had to turn it in as the barrel had gone to 7 on the guage. I took home a new 14 with a black McMillon fiberglass stock. It really shot well so I didn't cry too long.

    After I left China Lake, I went to a sea going squardon and didn't have time to shoot matches. I had a piece of paper which said I could check out any weapon out of the base armory but the only gear I had left was my coat and stool. Plus the base did not have any match ammo and reloading was a big no. I did manage to fire one match and it turned out to be my personnel best. The Lt. that set me up never gave an invite again because I did better than he did.

    Then I retired. I was busy raising a family and working weekends. 10 years later I came into some $ and had a correct post war Springer sent in (still kicking my self, if only I had known) for building into a match 308 with a fat stock. It took 16 months to build it. One of these days I'll post a photo of it.
    Now I'm shooting AR's and a wood gun once in awhile. It took me awhile to learn to shoot again but I finally beat my 764 with a AR.
