The definitive study of the last, true "lock, stock, and barrel" 'T' US battle rifle, US Rifle M14 spans the fateful postwar era of the decline of Army Ordnance as the arbiter of US small arms development. The story begins with an in-depth examination of wartime modifications to the M1 rifle (M1E1 - M1E14) and the original Garand-based ëTí series (T20, T20E1, T20E2; T22, T22E1, T22E2; and T27). Then the rest of the T series (T28; T31; T33; T35; T36; T37; T25; T47; T44, T44E1 - T44E6). The adoption of the T44E4 as the M14 in 1957; scopes, silencers, and folding stocks; the M14 in Vietnam. Now with more information on the latest USAMTU modifications which transform the M14 into the gilt-edge M21.
