    The U.S. Rifle 7.62 mm M14 was adopted for military service by the United Statesicon on May 1, 1957. The M14 rifle was developed to replace four military firearms, M1 Garand rifle, M1 Carbine, M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle and the M3A1 submachine gun. The M in M14 stands for Model. The M14 is a rotating bolt, gas operated, air cooled, magazine fed, shoulder fired weapon. The M14 is 44.28 ” long with the hinged butt plate and weighs 8.7 pounds. With a full magazine, cleaning kit and sling it weighs 11 ˝ pounds approximately. The maximum effective range is 460 meters (503 yards). The M14 has seen hostile service with the American military from the 1963 Cuban missile crisis to the Second Gulf War. The M14 rifle has been employed as a battle rifle, squad automatic weapon, competition match rifle, grenade launcher, sniper weapon system and ceremonial rifle.



    Between 1958 and 1963, the U. S. government ordered 1,380,358 M14 rifles from four entities. These were the U. S. Army’s Springfield Armory in Springfield, MA; Winchester (Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp.) in New Haven, CT; Harrington & Richardson Arms Company in Worcester, MA; and Thompson-Ramo-Wooldridge, Inc. in Cleveland, OH. A total of 1,376,031 M14 rifles were delivered between 1959 and 1964.
