Can You match the weapon to a Historic event/person
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

There is contracts by the U.S. Army units to have M14 rebuilt with after market parts to their specifications..ei stock types, barrel bedding, sights (iron and scpoes), and triggers. These are not the run of the mill gov contracts but contacts let by Divisions to companies that build custom sports rifles. One of the best moves the Army has made was to start a designated marksmen program (not sniper) much as the German army had during WWII, these marksmen are being outfited with these super M14s
