Again nice rifles and nice display... although the fence should have a nice lever Winchester on it... :)

Loved my M-14.
Heavy but it did the job.

Here's a couple of mine...but there are others!

I just wish someone would have warned me that you can't just have 1, 5 or more. :o

When I bought this a few years ago it was what S.A. calls the "Scout Squad" 18" BBL model and had a picatinny rail mounted on top.
After taking it out of the safe one night and cutting my hand on the very sharp edged rail, I cussed up a storm and the next day ordered a full length heat shield.
The pic below is the end result of the picatinny rail removed and replaced with the full length heat shield.
I believe the carbine now resembles what used to be known as the "Bush" model.

I'm on my 3rd S.A. M1A, although I never owned more than one at a time.
This is the ONLY rifle that as soon as I sell one, I feel an immediate void in my being that needs fixing.
The two other guns that have a similar effect on me are the S&W 625 .45 ACP and the Ruger Blackhawk .45 ACP/.45 LC.
Very strange.
I am currently lacking a S&W 625.

I thought I was the only one who felt that way.
