the rifle was invented in about the 15th century but it's kinda hard to place a name and date to it
Answer . Ammunition - USGI, Chinese and Taiwanese M14 type rifles are chambered for the 7.62x51 mm NATO cartridge (1.6350" GO, 1.6405" NO GO, 1.6455" FIELD REJECT). U. S. commercial M14 type rifles are chambered for .308 Winchester for the most part. However, many U. S. commercial M14 type rifles… have USGI or Chinese M14 barrels threaded on their receivers. The commercial manufacturers head space their rifles to SAAMI specifications (1.630" GO, 1.634" NO GO, 1.638" FIELD REJECT). A U. S. commercial made M14 type rifle can use either .308 Winchester or 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition. This is because the headspace limits for .308 Winchester are smaller than for the 7.62x51mm cartridge as noted above.. http://www.alpharubicon.com/leo/m14typeriflesd.htm (MORE)
M14 . Long and heavy . Has more recoil . Makes big holes . Shoots farther . Useless on full-auto . Holds 20 rounds . Ammo is heavy . Takes a bayonet M16 . Light . No recoil to speak of . Full-auto is fine . Can use 20 and 30 round magazines . Makes small holes . Light am…mo . Maneuverable in tight quarters . Takes hundreds of accessories from lights to grenade launchers Both rifles are highly accurate provided the operator does his part and the ammunition is good. (MORE)
The US Rifle M14 was not invented, created or developed by any one person, but by a joint effort of several engineers, designers, testers and evaluators. See the link below for more information on the M14.
Made by China by copying AK-47(Avtomat Kalashnikov 1947). Soviet Union gave AK-47 to china to make and use against USA and others. Original name Type 56(cos started in 1956). AK 56 is a derogatory name.
ArmaLite was a division of Fairchild, and made SEVERAL rifles that used the AR (ArmaLite Rifle) prefix. See the link below to a history of the company. Eugene Stoner was the primary designed of the AR15 series of firearms.
Springfield Armory still produces M14 clone rifles. They are in semi (full auto is inacurate anyways) and are called M1A1's.
No one person. It is thought that rifling came about from experiments to reduce the fouling caused by black powder, and devloped gradually in the 1400s. See link below for some general information.
The rifled musket was invented and sold to the US Army in 1861. Therifle ball was invented by French inventor Claude-Ã?tienne Minie.
The first semi-automatic rifle was developed around 1885. the firstsemi-automatic pistol was invented in 1892. The firstsemi-automatic shotgun came out in 1902. Semi automatic handgunsaccount for 50% of guns sales in the United States.
The first anti-tank came out when the first tank was fielded, in WW1. It was a bolt action rifle.
By and large, Benjamin Henry. Oliver Winchester reorganized the New haven Arms Company to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company when Henry tried to take over New Haven, feeling he had been under compensated for the design of the Henry Repeating Rifle. Winchester immediately had parts of the Henry… Rifle redesigned for the Model 1866. Winchester had the magazine improved, a loading gate was added to the right side of the receiver (a Nelson King design), and wooden forearms were added, but other elements of the rifle remained the same as the Henry such as the ammunition it fired, and the double firing pin.

Rifles were invented in the 15th Century, during the Civil War Period. If you are asking about when lands and grooves were used in barrels, the answer would be a few hundred years before the Civil War.
the Chinese were the first to invent the rifle. it was originally a "hand cannon" or a tube on a stick with a fuse. i think we have come a long way. they fond it in a hole
\nNo. A M14 is better at 600-700 M ranges. However, when there is a will (and lot of customization) there is a way.
The sustained rate of fire (on fully automatic) of the M14 battle rifle is 700-750 rounds per minute .
Well that depends are you looking for a single person or a factory? I know in the future some one is going to say "CHINA YOU IDIOT!" so im saving you now... Really no single person ionvented it. China (no offense) are basically copy cats w/ their own twist. The Chinese Assult Rifle is basically a Ch…inese AK-47 and the Chinese Pistol was a copy of the Germans Walter P38. Really their only origanal creation was the Samurai :) (Zero fighter doesn't count cause they blew em up too fast and Ford made em) (MORE)

Rifling was invented in the late 15th century. It was improved by August Kotter of Nuremberg in 1520 and by others later. There is a link below.
The Winchester Model 1873 was not invented by a single person, but instead was the culmination of Winchester's continual efforts to make improvements to older designs. The basic design was originally patented by Henry B. Tyler (the inventor of the original Henry Repeating Rifle), which was then take…n over by Oliver Winchester, improved upon, and released as the Winchester Model 1866. The Model 1873 was the next evolution of the Model 1866, and the advent of the centerfire cartridge versus a rim fire cartridge.. Bert H. (MORE)
There are many types of .303 rifles. Perhaps the most famous is the British Lee-Enfield series, beginning with the No. 1 Mk1, ending with the No. 4 MkII. This famous rifle was the evolution of the bolt action design of James Paris Lee, a British (Scottish-born who later became Canadian) inventor and… the famous Royal Small Arms factory in Enfield, England who designed the square-shaped rifling system. The '.303 British' is the most famous calibre used in these rifles and went on to become the most widely sold rifle and calibre in history. (MORE)

Which is a better airsoft sniper the UTG MK96 shadows ops spring airsoft sniper rifle or the UTG M14 AEG electric rifle?
I would go with the UTG M14 AEG Electric Sniper Rifle Wood, because it is electric, which means that it has both Semi and Full Auto modes; where the UTG MK96 Shadow Ops Spring Rifle will be Single shot only. The answer would depend on what kind of a game you are wanting to play. The M14 would …provide a more open ended platform for play, as you can play in full aeg mode and provide cover fire, and then go to semi mode and do some sniping. If you are wanting to only play as a sniper, you might want to go full out and get a designated sniper rifle and all the kit. Personally I would probably agree with the first poster and go with the m14 simply for a more versatile weapon. Most serious snipers go with a bolt action spring rifle for power and reliability.

M-14's haven't been made since 1960, and were made as automatic rifles (machine guns) and as such are expensive, over 10,000 USD. A new, unfired, registered, transferable M-14 would be a pricey item. A semi automatic rifle, on the same appearance as the M-14 sells new for around 1,200.00 (and up) US…D. There are now 3 or 4 different manufacturers of these. (MORE)

According to Wikipedia, rifling was invented in the late 15th century by one Jaspard Zoller in Vienna and improved by August Kotter in Nuremberg. This statement was not given any reference supporting it. I had read in several places over the years that rifling was invented somewhere in Switzerland d…uring the 15th century, but it was not known who the inventor was. (MORE)
The BAR is a gas-operated rifle invented by John M. Browning (1855-1926), an American gun designer. It has been chambered for various ammunition, but most frequently for .30-06 Springfield. About 47 inches (120 cm) long, it has a 20-round magazine and weighs 19.4 pounds (8.8 kg). It can fire up to 6…50 rounds per minute but can also fire single shots or bursts of two or three to increase accuracy. (MORE)
Sniping goes back to the American Revolution, when the Kentucky Rifle was used by sharpshooters behind the American front lines to take out high value targets, such as officers. The Kentucky Rifle had much better performance at range, because it had a rifled barrel vs. the smoothbore barrel of the B…rown Bess musket. However, it had no sights, and was slower to load. (MORE)
I believe that is a no. A friend of mine who owns one has informed me that there are no threads on this gun, making a silencer incompatible. Actually, you can add a suppresser to the cyma m14 i have one and it dos not indeed have threads but king arms has a "M14 QD suppresser" it comes with a fla…sh hider that you can switch out on your weapon the your good to go so there is a suppresser for the CYMA M14socom.

Yes- stacking is performed using the sling of one rifle tha is placed vertically, and two other rifles with the flash suppressors inserted through the loop of the sling of the vertical rifle.
Assuming you're referring to the M1 Garand, the general answer would be no. The M1 Garand utilised the 7.62x63 cartridge (more commonly known as the .30-06), whereas the M14 fires the shorter 7.62x51 cartridge. However, some variants of the M1 rifle were manufactured for testing purposes which wer…e chambered in 7.62x51. Additionally, the M1A rifles marketed by Springfield are chambered in 7.62x51, although M1A is simply a company designation, and not an actual military nomenclature. (MORE)
Like many military technologies, rifles are an improvement over an existing technology; in this case, the smoothbore musket. Smoothbores were the first firearms - very simply, they were a pipe with one end closed. Gunpowder was packed down at the closed end, with the spherical ball pushed down on… top. Unfortunately, in order for the ball to be able to make its way down the barrel, it had to be smaller than the inside diameter of the barrel. When the gunpowder exploded, the gas pushed the ball out; however, due to the poor fit between the bullet (really, a ball) and the barrel, the ball would bounce against the sides of the barrel while it traveled out. This resulted in a very poor ballistic path for the ball, and really, really poor accuracy. The exact inventor of the rifle is unknown. However somewhere in the 15th century in Europe, it was noticed that the spiraling nature of the arrow significantly increased its accuracy, and that perhaps a similar effect would work for bullets. Cutting actual grooves into musket barrels happened somewhere in the late 15th century, and the result was a significant improvement in accuracy. A rifled musket could reliably hit a target 5 times the distance that a smoothbore could. Unfortunately, in order to be effective, the lead sphere bullet had to be a tight fit, which required that it be forced down the barrel (as all muskets were muzzle-loaders, since breechloading hadn't been invented yet). This was a very laborious effort, so a smoothbore could be reloaded five or six times faster. Military commanders were not willing to give up the volume of fire potential for an increase in range, so rifles were not immediately used by any military. Around the middle 18th century, rifles became common for use by sharpshooters and hunters (particularly in North America). Militaries still preferred the smoothbore. It was not until the invention of the Minie-ball bullet in the 1840s that the slow reload problem was fixed, and muzzleloading rifles replaced smoothbore muskets in the 1850s in militaries. The perfection of the breechloader and the fixed cartridge/bullet combination shortly after helped perfect the modern rifle. (MORE)
The M14 rifle continues to see service in all branches of the military, as well as several foreign militaries. It is not, however, the standard service rifle of any.
In 1884, American-born inventor, Sir Hiram Stevens Maxim, developed the first semiautomatic rifle, when he modified a Winchester rifle so the power of the recoil would eject the spent cartridge and load the next round.
They were manufactured by Springfield Armoury, Harrington & Richardson, Olin Mathieson, and TRW. Licenced production was also carried out in Taiwan. Civilian semi auto reproductions have been or are manufactured by Springfield Armoury (the private company - not the same one which manufactured M14 …rifles for the US military), Poly Technologies, and NORINCO.

No , the M14 and Ruger Mini-14 are completely different firearms. The Mini-14 was designed for the civilian market as a .223 caliber rifle based on the looks of the M14, which fires the larger 7.62x51mm round and has fully automatic capabilities. They do both however have a gas-operated rotating bol…t action. (MORE)

There really isn't a best airsoft "m14". Your question is very vague, but i will try to answer it as best as possible. If you are looking for the most affordable m14, i would try to look at the cyma's, but remember, they are complete crap for an airsoft gun. i would suggest you look at higher grade …models such as g&g or tokyo marui. if you decide to choose tokyo marui, remember that it IS expensive, but it will be the best base gun for upgrading and tampering. if you are looking for a good starter gun, i would suggest the g&g over the tm simply because of the practicality and that it is ready to play out-of-the-box and doesn't require any modifications to make it perform post standard.

Where can I find an M14 rifle that costs under sixty dollars and ships to Canada because I am a Canadian resident and can't find a website that sells an M14 for 60 with low shipping HELP please?
go onto ebay.com and search this number 190334581591 altogether on its own and it will come up with an m14 rifle for 1 dollar and 1.45 dollars shipping.
Not sure I understand your question, but in general, any rifle with a front post sight, and a rear peep sight is used in a similar manner. The top of the front post is placed on the center of the target- and should be centered in the circle you will see when sighting through the rear sight. The rear… sight is adjusted left/right and up/down to move the strike of the bullets onto the target at a given range. For military use, that is usually 250 meters. From there, the shooter may adjust the elevation for different ranges, or merely hold higher or lower on the target. (MORE)

First created in the 1400's, and we do not know who the first gunmaker was that cut grooves into the bore. It seems to be European in origin, and MAY have come out of what is now Germany, but that is really a "best guess".

460 m, or 500 yards. However, the M25 version of the same rifle (sniper version) has a maximum EFFECTIVE range of 900 meters.
When the cartridge is fired, the bullet is driven through the barrel, At one point a small hole is drilled in one side of the barrel. As the bullet passes that hole, some of the gas that is pushing the bullet through the barrel enters that hole, and pushes against the gas piston. The gas piston driv…es the bolt to the rear, extracts the fired cartridge case, and ejects it from the rifle. A return spring pushes the bolt forward, where it strips a fresh cartridge from the magazine, and chambers it- ready to fire again. (MORE)
The story goes that in old muzzle loading guns, there would be abuild up of gunpowder residue. Gun designers cut grooves in thebarrel as a place for this residue to go without interfering withshooting. Someone made a spiral groove in a barrel, and noticed anincrease in accuracy.
An M14 rifle weight ranges form 9lbs to 11lbs based on what comes with the rifle. It usually increases in weight with the full magazine and the cleaning equipment.
