I feel some skepticism as to the statement in the video that the M-1A he s using  is legal.

Me too. They have a RDIAS?
Could have Form 1 or Form 10 it to make it legal?

Don't care about the full auto function, it's way too expensive and ammo hungry for my tastes.  But those fifty round mags...  I could dig having a couple of those on hand for my M1A.

I got a chance to shoot a transferable M-14 , it was fun and is on my list of things to buy when I get my stimulus check.

I've shot a M14 on FA in the military. Real tough to control. Obviously the military agrees with me. Hence the E2 stock with the fold down  vertical hand grip. Flip up shoulder brace with a rubber but pad against your shoulder. Bipod, and a clamp on muzzle device to help control it.
That was with 20 rounders.. 1.4 seconds to run one out, if I remember correctly
That was a hard rifle to feather the trigger on.

They did not say it was an M1A There are transferrable M14's are there if you have the scratch.

Yes...mostly.

On my list of dream MGs it isnt near the top, but its not at the bottom either. It falls somewhere between the Chauchat and the GE M143.

There is no such thing as an RDIAS for an M14. If it is in fact an M14  then it is has a selector leg or tab on the receiver , civilian legal copies do not have this and cannot accept the connector rod and selector switch. They clearly stated the selector lock was in place on this rifle and was removed so the selector switch could be installed.

That sound was fucking amazing... Wished my M-14 had a Happy Switch

We did that when I was in the Army back in the 80's on the range and at the time as we had a few of them in our arms room . After a couple of magazines I came to understand that rifle simply was not a good platform for FA fire.  The whole reason the selector lock was put on the rifles in the first place when they were the general issue service rifle was because they figured out that full auto in a 9.5 pound rifle firing a full power cartridge just does not work.

Why was the BAR controllable but not the M14?

The BAR was controllable off of a bipod. Not so much when GIs removed it which they loved to do.

Its a damn fine rifle and no worse than its contemporaries. The modern AR10 I think is better.

The BAR weighs twice as much, I'm sure that helps.

Not really it was not that controllable in off hand unsupported firing anyone who has shot one will tell you so, it will climb pretty good with a 20 round mag.  That is the reason the M1918A2 was developed with the bipod their testing showed the hit potential went way up when the gun was shot from a bipod versus other methods such as from a supported position with no bipod or unsupported .

Isn't it also heavier?

I had an M1A, sold it to a member here.  I will stick to ARs.

Having actually shot full auto M14s, they are useless. Do not want.

M16 is the only full auto I would buy if I had the cash. I have shot an M14 and BAR and both are nice but for me the M16 was much easier to control from the shoulder. The BAR is a heavy bitch also. The BAR was the best sounding. If the choice was only a M14 or BAR I would take the M14. It has been about 10 years since I shot them and from what I remember of them the BAR is a huge gun.

Thanks,
Clears it up a bit, had never heard of the lock before.
