    This just struck me as really funny. I used to have a sticker on the side of my M1A stock that read, "This side towards enemy" with an arrow pointing towards the muzzle. Sniper humor is cool.

    The best part is... from the bad end, it's a sad smiley. :)

    It is funny, but I'd be happier to see people in the field not running around with bright yellow patches.

    Also, someone needs to buy that guy a decent rail.

    Yeah, because that yellow patch on the end of his scope might distract from the great camouflage job provided with a black rifle against a backdrop of DCU's and woodland pattern MOLLE gear.

    It's not like he's actually going to do much hiding with just a set of DCU's on his body. Now, if he were actually TRYING to hide himself REALLY well, he'd be wearing a ghillie suit and his scope would be well enough under cover that no one would see the bright yellow sticker. Not to mention, in such a situation, he'd most likely have the lens cover up, like in the picture. Then, there would be more of a chance someone would see a glint of light off of his scope lens than someone (from behind him) would see the cute little smiley face.

    There are filters you put between the flip cap cover and the scope that prevent glare.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about forend rail systems for the M14, but I can't believe that two rings in front of the erector assembly is the best choice for mounting that scope.

    I was thinking maybe something like this:

    That's the mount I'm going to purchase for myself and my new M14s that I've just gotten back from the armorer. I'll give it to my wife to wrap for under the tree! It's the scope mount of choice, for sure, and sure looks better than that clunky "3rd generation" mount.

    And, it's wonderful to see that venerable M14 back in service on the front lines, isn't it? It's a testement to the reliability and accuracy of the very short-lived mbr.

    I may have my facts incorrect, actually, not facts but recollections, but isn't the Marine Corps using accurized M14s in a squad 'designated marksman' role? :confused: I guess that could explain the lack of a ghillie, with him being part of a squad in their operations.

    Great pic!

    That "sniper" needs a Serbu BFG-50.

    Read in the "specifications" section......



    Muzzle brake: Highly effective "Shark Brake" standard. "HAVE A NICE DAY" engraving on muzzle face $25 extra

    The Army's IBCT units are using M24's (M14 Sniper version) in the Designated Marksman role. There is either one of those or an anti-armor specialist per nine man squad. Obviously in A-stan and Iraq there's no need for anti-armor. A Stryker Brigade has 130 slots for trained snipers - an immense increase from past TO&E's.

    The Marines have two configurations of M16 for DM:

    Totally agree. It's worth every bit of the $25 bucks to engrave the "Have A Nice Day" on the end of my 50 Cal.

    M21 is the sniper version of the M14.

    M24 is the Army's bolt-action sniper rifle.

    Since someone's already dredged up a 2-year old thread, i may as well inquire---what else does our sniper have on the end of his rifle that would require that push-activation thing hanging to the right-hand side of the stock?

    Looks to me like your basic Tactical Tommy red laser spotter. It's definitely not any sort of military IR laser night targeting device-PAQ-4 or PEQ-2A.

    The M-24 is a bolt action sniper rifle, the M-21 is the "sniper" version of the M-14. Most DMs with M-14s use just that though, a plain old M-14 with whatever rail the unit or individual soldier bought for it and some sort of optic. The most common optics I've seen are either ACOGs or the Leupold M3A.

    Negative the m24 is a bolt action sniper rifle.

    The m21 is the accurised version of the m14

    Our unit uses m16A4's with acogs as designated marksman rifles.
