Why Winchester’s Prototype M14 Rifle Was a Vision of the Future

If you are a M14 fan, raise your hand.

Well, the M14 had to have a prototype, just like any other weapon. This one was visionary.

The mighty M14 rifle is a battle rifle that refuses to be shelved. It has been dusted off and implemented in the war against terror in current times.

The M14 service rifle had to have a beginning. Our friend Ian from Forgotten Weapons has found that great rifle’s father. This Winchester prototype M14 is a select fire weapon complete with a removable bipod. It also is extremely light and was made from an ordinary Winchester M1 Garand Rifle with many modifications.

Well this beautiful weapon was just a glimpse into the future that is the mighty M14 rifle.  Special thanks go out to Ian for finding such an interesting historical gem.
