I've heard that from a lot of people actually. (That they preferred the M-14) Performance + the fact that it didn't look/feel like a plastic toy gun, I think it was.

(not just another brick in the wall)
Although I would never treat one that way, I swear you could bury an M-14 for a week, dig it up, run an oiled patch through the barrel and it would fire.
They're reliable in all conditions and accurate.

Ditto on the M-14. When I transitioned from the M-14 to the M-16, the firearms instructor was careful to tell us the M-16 was not to be used with a bayonet the same way as the M-14 unless one wished to end up with two weapons. Both of them clubs.
