« Reply #125 on: November 18, 2013, 05:07:05 PM »
 :clap



STIPR = M-14 Stock Tensioning Installed Picatinny Rail





Contact Duke Nukem with any question you may have.

The benefits of STIPR on your USGI synthetic stock:

1. Increased accuracy.
2. Accepts Picatinny accessories.
3. Virtually eliminates fore end flex.
4. STIPR costs less than the SAGE EBR and other similar modern stocks.
5. STIPR eliminates the need for glass bedding to attain NM accuracy.
6. Field stripping your rifle remains easy & unchanged.

    What soft nosed ammo  does  the M14  like?  What's  the  ease  of disassembly?  Can  you  can  clean  the  whole rifle with grease alone?

    Field striping an M1A is cake. I use CLP to clean it and hopes #9 for the bore. Then I lube it with the slipstream grease or lubraplate.

    I don't know what soft point bullets it likes though sorry.

    Up to a point.... The M14/m1a doesn't have all those parts that fall out that act as the Sheryl lifting mechanism in lieu if a magazine once you remove the opp rod.... Still the m1a manual says only to disassemble sparingly to begin with

    Nice I like it except for the rail at the bottom. Is it a wood stock?

    Thanks, the stock is USGI fiberglass.

    The bottom rail stiffens the fore end for improved accuracy as well as giving my larger hands a better grip.

    That makes sense. I hadn't thought about it stiffening the front end. I had just thought about the rough griping surface posibly eating up hands.

    I like the hand gaurd though with the rail. A nice little red dot that won't add much weight or bulk I think is just about perfect. Can you still use the irons with it on?

    With regards to M14/M1A bullpup conversions meeting the NFA overall length (OAL) requirement of 26.0"

    The official measurement is taken from the end of the butt stock to the crown of the barrel.
    The 16.25" SOCOM barrel renders an OAL of 24.50".

    Unless you want to add the 14.0 ounce, 2.0" factory butt stock spacer,
    the 16.25" barrel does NOT meet NFA OAL requirements in the Rogue.

    Bottom line:

    Choosing an M14/M1A with an 18 or 22 inch barrel is the very BEST choice for your bullpup conversion.
     An 18.0" barreled action in the Rogue renders a legal OAL of 26.25" when measured butt stock to crown.

    Here is a video that I shot in 2011.
    It shows 'Dino' firing his weapon with my suppressor attached.
    He had yet to master mag changes...

    Somehow I'm not convinced. Curious, but he had a hard time getting that mag in. I respect the bullpup design but they seem clumsy when it's time to reload.

    Dino was trying to insert the mag backwards, and then he got flustered  :panic

    He later redeemed himself with videos showing extremely fast mag changes.

    Issues sometimes resolve themselves ...

    I sold the bullpup kit this morning, so I put the rifle in a wood stock.

     :coffee The M14 rifle remains the longest serving rifle used by units of the U.S. Armed forces with the exception of the Springfield M1903 rifle.


    My summer project is to put this CQB-16 type SEI back into a Canadian Blackfeather "RS"
    This time I will use their new long sight plane top rail (LSP) & high butt stock adapter (HBA)
