M14 Airsoft Replicas
Historical presentation of the M14
The M14 rifle is an American 7.26mm caliber selective-fire rifle. It became the standard rifle of the United States Army in 1958, replacing the M1 Garand rifle in the United States Army in 1959 and the United States Marine Corps in 1965, until it was replaced by the rifle M16 from 1968. The M14 was used by the US Army and Marines for basic and advanced individual training.
The M14 was the last American combat rifle to be issued in significant quantities to American military personnel. It was replaced by the M16 Assault Rifle, a lighter weapon using a smaller caliber intermediate cartridge. The M14 rifle remains in limited service with all branches of the U.S. military as a weapon for marksmanship competitions and the ceremonial weapon of honor guards. You should know that semi-automatic civilian models are used for hunting and target shooting competitions.
Finally, it should be noted that the M14 is the basis of the M21 and M25 sniper rifles, which have largely been replaced by the M24. A new variant of the M14, the MK 14, has been in service since 2002.
