Actually, it was better than I expected.
Once you get past his voice, it was actually pretty good. Entertaining, at least.

Interesting. Good video.

And…
I couldn’t get rid of my Springfield Armory M1A fast enough.

I really lucked out with my first M14 build. Had a gunsmith buddy help me out. He really knew what he was doing.

I found a Douglas NM medium-weight 1:10 barrel. It shipped with a short chamber. He and I lapped a TRW M14 bolt into a Norinco M14S and then he finish reamed the chamber. After break-in I was getting 1 MOA with Federal GMM and another reloader buddy helped me work up a 168gr SMK load and that did 0.75 MOA. I was super happy since it didn't even have a unitized gas cylinder, and it's in a USGI walnut stock. I was like, "Should we unitize the gas cylinder?" He said "Nope. Leave it alone." So I did.

Took it up to the mountains in CO and figured I'd experience a POI shift, but I didn't.

I got a standard weight Polytech M14S after that, and I still enjoy shooting it with iron sights. M14 rifles tend to get a bad rap here, but for semi-auto fire with iron sights they're really great.

Really? All it took for me was an NM guide rod and some gas shims.  And the M1A fed more reliably.

Not a bad video, though his recommendation is a bit much.

I went into the M1A/M14 experience not expecting AR10 accuracy. There's no way they'll keep up. Enjoy the M14 for what it is, not what one thinks they can shoehorn it into being.

That said, my M1A is an MOA shooter and my Fulton-receivered USGI kit build is at 1.25 MOA. Not the .55-.65" my AR10s get, but I'm still damned happy.
