I wondered when someone would mention the M14. With hundreds of thousands still in inventory it shouldn’t be a problem other than the ammo and repair logistics.

IIRC, Xlinton x42 had about half a million of the M14 surplus scrapped. The military has already pulled and upgraded most of the remainder for use as Designated Marksman weapons. Some new Springfield M1A's are supposedly being purchased to fill the gap.
