    So it seems lately people have knocking the accuracy potential and the "relativeness" of the M14 in modern combat. So I read this and thought I would share this for those who do not regularly visit the M14 boards

    Different posted one of his regular updates from his chats with Ron Smith and this caught my eye even though I have read it before I believe on the SEI website:

    I do not believe SEI epoxy beds their rifles either which is impressive. When you compare the cost of these refurbished rifles and their performance compares to the M110 they really start to make sense especially since SEI is pushing to make USGI quality replacement parts as the USGI parts disappear. I'm not saying we should stop buying the M110 and start making M14s again but if they can be as effective as the M110 we might as well use them.

    For those that do not know Different, here is his website:

    http://www.imageseek.com/m1a/welcome.html

    I would suggest if you are an M14 fan to read his book he wrote on it's development. It is the most comprehensive source available and he has it linked for a free download I believe these days.

    People have been knocking the M14 for years...

    Go to SEI's homepage and click on this picture in the LATEST NEWS:
    section for more information on the awesome M21A5/Crazy Horse rifles.

    Last year I had Ron Smith build two M21A5 Crazy Horse rifles for me, one is in a SAGE EBR stock.

    Good post, man. I am still working on my M1A Supermatch with Krieger heavy weight barrel/JAE stock for it to shoot subMOA at 100 yards...

    Right now, I am stuck at 1.5 MOA with Federal match, with occasional 2.5 MOA fliers every 5th round. I am switching my scope this Friday from a 9x Niko to a Super Sniper 20x42mm, and hopefully I will achieve subMOA at 100 yards. I think the barrel still needs more breaking in. R

    A match barrel shouldn't need any breaking in.

    What scope mount are you using and how does it shoot with iron sights? Also, it may shoot better if you go prone with a sling.

    seriously? I just shot two 3/4" 3-shot groups with my stock M1A Scout @ 100 yards this past weekend out of a lead sled and iron sights

    9x is more than enough at 100 yards to achieve moa(or even 1/2 moa). Unless there is something actually wrong with the nikon or its mounting, upping to more magnification will not be the answer to your accuracy issues.
