Hell I have a 03 Springfield that shoots 3/8 all day long and is nearly a 100 years old. Barrel is stamped 7-18 as in 1918. Now imagine if you put a high dollar US Optics sniper scope on her! You would have a hell of a sniper rifle. Would be as fancy as a M21 but still a great platform. The barrel would heat up quick compared to a M21. Now having said that Im sure somewhere down the line a turd or two popped up. They are old and if not properly taken care of or had worn out parts replaced then they would have problems and some did. To me thats the armorers fault and should have been addressed at the time they were "refurbished". Plus Im not a fan of Leopold scopes. They would not be my first or even 2nd or 3rd choice for that matter. I believe most problems with the OLD M14 were related to the Leopold scopes as far as accuracy.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure,the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy,its inherent
virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
