    M14 Rogue project.

    In the process of suppressing this Rogue monstrosity. James River M14 receiver with 19" Bula barrel. I have some 16" suppressor ready barrel assemblies coming in next week so it's time to get this thing ready. Can't wait to mount an OSS suppressor and get her out on the range. Whatta hobby!

    Back to the Rogue project. Today.

    1. Remove old barrel
    2. Get receiver ready for new barrel by lapping new bolt to 60/40 contact.
    3. Wait for new barrels due in Tuesday.

    Whatta Hobby!

        Thanks, I have never been able to leave well enough alone. This is what enjoying retirement is all about to me.

            No this is just a reconfiguration of one that has been in the herd for years.
            That Winnie has been in a nice Winchester stock for some time. Had to post that as ugly though.
            I only use the bright colored stocks in the shop during construction of a new project and for function firing new builds. They can't easily get mixed in with finished rifles that way.

              Finished her up with the new barrel and hardware this morning. Took photos with a couple of optic choices. I think the ACOG is going to be my favorite. Whatta Hobby!

                So jealous of that ACOG!

              #9
              Got out and ran 100 rnds function fire of MEN 94 through her this morning and it didn't skip a beat. Tossed brass at 2 oclock into my net . With the ACOG and suppressed, it's no target rifle but will sure do for the minute of man at 100.

                Good shooting, as usual, Art!
                How do you like that MEN ammo overall? What about that DAG?? Both are German manufacture, right???

                  DAG was my favorite. I ran through well over 20K of that and so far about 10K of MEN. Only have 7K Men left. They are absolutely my favorite cases to load. Problem today is finding the KV 7.62 N primers.
                  Haven't tried any of the MEN that is around now with the headstamps ground down.
