From Wikipedia:

M14 production tooling was sold in 1967 to the Taiwanese, who in 1968 began producing their Type 57 Rifle.

479,367 M14 rifles were destroyed by Presidential Executive Order during the Clinton administration.

LOL, they aren't in storage! Those M-14's are being used as sniper rifles.

The unit that replaced us had about 10 M-14's and a couple of the Barrett 50 cals. They were an Mountain Infantry company, but we had all of the M9's that did more to stop Iraqi's than any other weapon system...cuz EVERONE in Iraq was scared of the pistol. (even crappy M-9's)
