Several flash suppressor sound moderator/suppressor adaptable muzzle devices are available and can be readily fitted to the Army M14 Scope Mounts EBR rifles.
Either they don’t know this or choose to ignore this fact.
This is the Surefire version, current with Navy SEAL rifles.

This is the Smith Enterprise Direct Connect version and I thought the Army was using these along with SEI sound suppressors.

I have devised a cleaning and implement case that provides all the necessary tooling and cleaning accessories needed to adequately service the rifle in the field.

A detailed packet listing these improvements was sent by me to Department of Defense free of charge, a citizen doing his civic duty.

There are plenty of very good M14 Scope Mounts gunsmiths working in the civilian sector and they will do barrel changes at reasonable rates if it is determined to be necessary. Once the barrel is installed on the receiver, ALL of the rest of the work necessary to build a rifle can be accomplished on the M14 Scope Mounts type rifle just as easily as the AR10 type rifle by the individual builder so very little advantage goes to the AR10 verses the M14 Scope Mounts in this aspect. joeblack261

Most important – have fun!!! Here are a few handy links from your friends here on the FL: General Cleaning of […]
