    I'd like to see photos and descriptions of your 7.62x51/.308 Semiautomatic rifles and the equipment that goes along with it.

    Why did you go the route you have?

    Why the specific rifle/caliber?

    What have you done to it or why are you proud of owning it?

    Fire away!

    My Polytech M14.

    This one came up for a good price and I did not have a .308 rifle. Since owning it, I've picked up several extra stocks, magazines and scope mounts for it. It's fun, shoots good and has been pretty reliable for about 1/2 the cost of an M1A. It's also nice and loud, gets a lot of looks whenever I shoot it. :D

    I painted the stock and handguard and added a rail to the bottom to attach the AFG. I'd like to do a little more to it. Basically, a Ultimak rail and an Aimpoint micro so I can co-witness the irons and I'll be done modifying it. :thumbup:

    Looks like someone could not make up their mind between a ar15 and M1A

    I have an M1A Supermatch
    278626050_giPAd-M-1.jpg
    I purchased the M1A for Highpower match shooting....which I've since stopped competing in once I discovered PR and sniper matches....
    and a newly acquired FNAR. THe FNAR is an interesting gun that shoots very well -I've only got about 35 rnds through it.
    The M1A has sported it's stock iron sights and the FNAR has the bull barrel and has a 10x 42 Super Sniper scope mounted in Leuplod QD steel rings.
    I like both for different reasons. I've used the M1A with a Springfield Mount and the SS scope in a few sniper matches but I wouldn't want to trust my life on either past 800 yds.... that's why I have a Rem 700P in an AICS stock.

    FNAR is one of the coolest and ugliest guns I have had the pleasure of shooting. It really is a great deal, I mean it's a sub-moa semi-auto for like $1300 (well.. before you buy those ridiculously expensive magazines anyway). Sure is uuuugly though! :laugh: Do you have any pictures of yours for our viewing pleasure? :)

    Yeah, I really want to like the FNAR, but she's the ugly girl at the dance. My wish list .308 is the Kel-Tec RFB.

    I had a super sniper 10x fixed 30mm scope on it in a factory stanag mount but have since swapped it onto another rifle. I hope to replace it with a trijicon accupoint tr23-1g some day. Other than that, it's a box stock hk91. Gotta love those .99 magazines:thumbup::D

    Just remember when you go to buy a cetme to check bolt gap and make sure it does not have a ground bolt.

    well here is the only photo i have handy of my cetme from the classified section

    its not a century build cetme. It funtions 100% and is pretty accurate

    Now witness the power of a fully operational battle rifle (just click the pic)

    My neighbors have come to accept me. The senior citizens in my gated community apperciate me. If I lived in Salem off of 17th, I wouldn't show anything gun related, just tennis racket and guitar cases in and out of the house.
