    I'd love to shoot one. I'll ask my son if he ever had the pleasure. He was an Army Ranger & left active duty about 2 years ago but is still in the Reserve. The one thing about the Rangers - they never give any details about the weapons they use unless it just a run-of-the-mill M 4, etc.

    Is it in 7.62 caliber or is it 5.56 NATO? Is that any relation to the standard M 14 issue rifle pre-M 16?

    That's a standard 7.62x51mm M14 in a Sage stock. The Army types it as the M14EBR-RI. The rifle action, trigger and barrel are all steel, and the body of the stock is machined from 1 solid block of aluminum . Only the pistol grip and handguard, cheek riser and buttpad are polymer. And the rifle strips down just like the wooden stocked M14s you may remember, Top.

    Default Range Report

    My sage rifle is the early U.S. Marine M39 EMR Stock. I had her built in 2009. Here are more photos and a range report as I had Miss Lauren zeroed in with iron sights. The shooting complex I shot at only has up to 100yds for paper targets.



    100yrd.
    ULTRAMAX Remanufactured .308 168gr. Boat Tail Hollow Point

    Position: Bench Shooting using the SEI Bipod

    Target Paper: 100 Yard High Power Rifle Target (SR-1)

    I bet your Dad is in Montana, too. Jared. Doesn't everyone have a firearm there?

    Now that's what I was looking for - a range report and a shot group! A 98-2X; not bad at all! Still, the EBR is optimized for longer ranges and optical sights - looking forward to seeing some 500 yard groups posted. But it's not all gravy - there are a few negatives to the EBR setup:
    - It's fairly heavy; at 11 lbs. or so unloaded, this is not a rifle you want to carry all day
    - The Sage stock will only allow the original GI contour barrel; competitors install heavier aftermarket barrels on their M14s for increased accuracy
    - It's expensive; Fulton armory has the EBR stock available for $809-, and the clip guide scope mount will run you $60- more.

    But it is a cool looking setup, I'll give you that. And that's a good looking website you've set up, Lester. Well done!

    11lbs is a bit weighty, but if the weight is in the barrel and its counterbalanced properly it can be used as a squad sniper weapon.... .308 boatail is a good round to be sending downrange.... and if the USMC have adopted it is really says alot for the accuracy of the weapon...
