Ahh the mire that is the m14. Wood would swell in jungle humidity and moisture affecting accuracy.
Although you could equally argue it wasn’t designed as a sniper in the first place. (Although there are several variants now and do a great job) It just does a decent job at it in a pinch. It was designed to replace 4 guns: the m1, m3 grease gun, the BAR, and the m1 carbine. Which in retrospect was a terrible idea to try and have 1 gun fulfill all of those rolls. It was to large, heavy, and down right unmanageable in full auto. It however, when well maintained, is a great long range weapon with good ability to pen through soft cover. And the other main reason why it holds up so well is the inital poor reception of the m16 to combat troops. Sure it wasn’t perfect but at least it worked. Going on what i said earlier that “it was and still is a great gun” i should have added the * when well maintained
