How about going back to the M-14? or M1A?

How about an M1A in a bullpup?

You could even re-chamber to 7mm-08 or 6.5 Grendel - or for added punch to the squad, leave at the 7.62

I don’t recall an M14 carbine. Please educate me.

M-14 was one sweet bullet launcher.

Hated the M-14. Plastic handguard wouldn’t take wear and tear. Flash suppressor made it less accurate than the M-1 Garand. I know because I qualified with both.

I realize that the M-1 was made for a different era and a different type of warfare; but if you are fighting a determined enemy, you want a bullet that kills with one shot. How about a re-designed Thompson, firing maybe .357 Magnum?

I understand a number of our men and women in Iraq have rediscovered the M-14 and its advantages.

Why not start with it and create an evolved bullpup version?

“How about going back to the M-14?”

If you’ve ever had to lug an M-14 and a standard issue of ammo through the jungle, you wouldn’t suggest that.

That is one heavy weapon, and absolutely useless on full auto. I never knew anyone that could fire it full auto without ending up shooting at the moon.
