The selector switch is the giveaway. It’s an M-14.

As a humorous (and heave-inducing diversion), think of the Obamadork in that same picture.

Q1: Could he find the trigger?
Q2: Would he know what to do with the trigger?
Q3: Would he think the weapon is some sort of new basketball?

The cheek rest appears attached, notice the two holes below it, to the stock. It does appear to be an M-14, sans magazine

Another foreign leader (female in this instance) that could kick 0dumb0’s skinny kenyan ass from one side of the room to the other. I imagine that most foreign leaders just laugh at the metrosexual uzzlim homo faggot that we have as our supposed leader. 0dumb0 isn’t qualified to lead anyone, anywhere. Although he is doing a good job in transforming our once great nation into his version of 0dumb0mugabe Zimbabwe. What an a$$hole!

I’m thinking it’s a Springfield M1A Match rifle.

Yes, it’s a cheek rest. Because she’s got a scope mounted she needs it to get her head in the correct position and get a good weld to the stock.

The small metal switch just behind the operating rod handle is the selector switch which enables fully automatic fire.

Of course she’d have a much better chance of making it go “bang” if there were a full magazine inserted, but hey. She’s the President. If she wants to rock and roll I’m sure someone will hand her all the full magazines she wants.

Here is what you speak of...and looks accurate

Current production SpringfieldM1A target rifle set up to duplicate M21, but with modified wooden adjustable stock.

Never thought of it that way before: being president means that you never have to load your own mags.

I wonder if she could hit Russians with it.

M14 or clone of some type

It’s an M-14 with a civilian bipod, some sort of grafted-on cheekpiece and a real tall and old-model scope mount. It has the selector lock on its disconnector spindle, so it’s locked into semiauto in its current configuration. It isn’t ready to go, since the magazine is missing and the shooter doesn’t have a finger in the trigger guard.

They make a smaller mag that sits flush with the bottom of the well, makes for a smoother bottom for getting down low if there is no bipod attached. She could have one in the well, and it would appear just like it does in the photo.

I had one for my rifle before the boating accident.

Look at the gas block flash hider and op rod and you will see that it isn’t a Ruger Mini 14

Or an M1A1, but it has a short mag - 5 rounds?

M14 derivative.
Similar to the M25, may have an accuratized barrel, has the modified stock similar to the sniper versions of the M14.

That’s an M14. The Clinton Administration gave away tons of them to the three Baltic nations in the mid-late 1990s.

I remember when the giveaway happened...there had been a lot of hope at the time that the CMP might finally be allowed to sell/issue genuine M14s for target use. There were a LOT of angry people as a result of this.

Lithuania now makes its own 7.62 NATO ammo for them...a bunch of it (essentially brand-new but made pre-NATO-certification) was released on the surplus market maybe eight years ago. Shooters still speak reverently of it.

That appears to be an M-14 rifle. They chamber 308 cal and are accurate as hell. I’ve been wanting one for a long time, just can’t spend $1,500 + on a gun.

I'd say, Lithuania has a way cooler president than we do.

Better camouflage uniforms for working in the bushes, too.
