The story of the M14E2 rifle is simply another chapter in the endless quest to increase the firepower of the infantryman. Single-shot rifles evolved into bolt action repeaters, which were replaced by semi-automatic rifles, and finally select fire weapons. As riflemen, we like to think of combat as a battle between marksmen, but the reality is that firepower rules the day. John C. Garand, the inventor of the M1 rifle, experimented with semi-automatic and automatic rifle designs in the years following World War I, culminating in the adoption of the M1 by the U.S. Army as its standard infantry rifle in 1936. By the end of World War II, interest in select-fire infantry rifles was strong, and prototypes of a rifle like the M1 with a box magazine and full auto capability were under development.

The M1 was a great design and its action served as the starting point for the M14 rifle which replaced the M1 in the late 1950s. The goal of the team that designed the M14 was to develop a rifle with select fire capability that was lighter than the M1 and fed from a 20-round box magazine replacing the eight-round enbloc clips of the Garand. The 7.62×51 (.308 Winchester) cartridge would also replace the .30-06 round which had served since before World War I. The M14 rifle as adopted was basically a product improved M1. It was approximately the same length and weight as the Garand, and it fired a cartridge of similar power and caliber. So, one might ask, where was the improvement over Garand’s masterpiece? The M14 did have full auto capability, but its utility was limited in a rifle weighing less than 10 pounds. In less than a decade, the M14 was replaced by the M16, a truly lightweight automatic rifle chambered in a much smaller caliber, but the M14 soldiered on for decades as a scoped designated marksman rifle in various forms due to its range, reliability and accuracy.

The Pentagon sold the M14 to Congress and the American people as a universal weapon that could replace the M1 Garand, the BAR, the M1 or M2 carbine and the M3 submachinegun. This fantasy was billed as one of the reasons to adopt the new rifle. Certainly, it could replace the Garand. The M1/M2 carbine was designed as a personal defense weapon for someone who really didn’t need a full-sized battle rifle such as an officer or truck driver and, in this role, the M14 would be much larger and heavier. The M3 “grease gun” was issued to tank crews due to its compact size. M14s would not be handier in that role. What about the BAR? It weighed 20 pounds, twice the weight of the M14, and served as the base of fire for the infantry squad.

Suppression of the enemy with automatic weapons to discourage them from returning fire while the riflemen of an infantry squad maneuvered to a more advantageous position was often the job of the automatic rifleman and his BAR. The BAR was a magnificent weapon known for its reliability and precision, and it saw action from the waning days of WWI to the early days of the Vietnam War. Its weight (and heavy barrel) made it ideal for firing controlled bursts of .30-06 with relative precision. Could the much lighter M14 firing a cartridge of similar power and recoil replace the BAR? Well, maybe, with a few modifications.

Enter the M14E2

The new infantry rifle was originally conceived as two models: the M14 for mostly semi-automatic fire and the M15 with a heavy barrel and bipod for both semi and full-automatic fire. The M15 was declared obsolete before it was produced, and the feeling was that the standard M14 could fill in as an automatic weapon with the addition of a bipod. However, in the words of R. Blake Stevens in his book U.S. Rifle M14, from JOHN GARAND to the M21: “it was still a fundamental of physics that full auto fire from a nine-pound full power shoulder rifle, even with a ventilated handguard and 1¾-pound bipod attached, produced excessive recoil and muzzle climb, and consequently, unacceptable dispersion of shots. In other words, on burst fire, (after the first shot), …the M14 was erratic, impossible-to-control, and hopelessly inaccurate.”

An effort was made to tame the rifle using a special straight line wood stock with an integral pistol grip, M2 bipod, a forward folding pistol grip bolted to the stock and a muzzle compensator. Also developed was a longer version of the standard web sling (64½ inches) with an extra metal clip designed to attach to the folding fore grip when it was deployed. A sling swivel was added to the M2 bipod so that sling tension applied via the forward grip would not stress the wood stook. The new stock sported a rubber pad and hinged butt plate. The M14E2 was officially type classified by the U.S. Army in 1966 as the M14A1, after production of the M14 had ended. In his excellent book on the M14, The Last Steel Warrior, Frank Iannamico states that 8,350 M14 rifles were converted to A1 configuration. Now, let’s look at the parts necessary to build a reasonable facsimile of the M14E2.

Necessary Parts

The M14E2 was built from a full auto government issued M14 infantry rifle. There are some transferable registered full auto M14s in civilian hands, but they are relatively scarce, and I don’t have one so we will use a civilian semi-auto rifle from Springfield Armory, Inc. Springfield Armory has been building high quality replicas of the M14 since the 1970s. I clearly recall sitting in the back row of my history class in high school reading a gun magazine and seeing an ad for the Springfield M1A for the first time. As a collector of military rifles, and an avid student of military history, I vowed to own one someday. It was at least a dozen years before I acquired one and since then I’ve owned a pile of them. I have no complaints. They are accurate and reliable. The rifle used for this article was a base model standard weight M1A (MA9106) graciously supplied by Springfield Armory for our use.

If you possess an original fully outfitted G.I. M14E2 stock you can skip this section, but those stocks are rare and getting rarer. You might be able to buy a nice bare G.I. stock but if you can’t find one, Sarco, Inc. of Easton PA has come to the rescue. They are having replicas of the original M14E2 stock manufactured from a light-colored wood which resembles birch (part number M14364). Most of the original M14E2 stocks were birch. The stock is not supplied with any hardware but a stock ferrule, liner, handguard, repro forward grip assembly and butt pad assembly are available separately from Sarco. A hardware kit to complete the stock with all parts necessary in one package may be available by the time you read this article. The original G.I. issue forward grip and butt pad assemblies are expensive and tough to find. We will use the Sarco repro parts for this build.

Like most commercial stocks, some fitting of the rifle to the stock is necessary. Commercial M14 style receivers from Springfield, Fulton Armory, LRB and numerous others are not exact duplicates of the G.I. original or each other. They’re close, but some adjustment of the stock is usually required for a perfect fit. Before we can test fit the action in the wood the stock ferrule and liner must be installed. The ferrule is simply a stamped sheet metal cap that fits over the wooden lip on the front of the stock. The lip of the front band should bear against it when the rifle is assembled. The ferrule should just press on to the wood but if it can’t be installed without excessive force some wood may be sanded off until it fits. Ferrules on original G.I. stocks were crimped to the wood but they can be epoxied in place if they are loose.

Rifle Prep

I stripped our M1A test rifle so that only the op rod guide remained mounted to the barrel. A stock liner was test fitted to the M1A receiver legs. Ideally, it should fit loose enough that the barreled action can be raised slightly from the muzzle once the liner is installed in the stock. The liner I used for this project fit too tight, so I filed the inside edge of the front vertical liner legs for clearance. The liner is inserted into the mag well of the stock from the bottom with the hooks first and then rotated into position while squeezing the legs together. A special screwdriver bit is required to tighten the two liner screws. I modified a large, flat screwdriver to fit. Badger Ordnance produces a 1/4-inch drive bit for this purpose available from Brownell’s (093-223-040).

With the liner installed, I dropped the M1A into the stock to check for interference. The guiding principle of M14 stock fitting is that no part of the barrel assembly should touch the stock except the lip of the front band where it contacts the stock ferrule. Some problems were immediately apparent. The wood just behind the ferrule was too tight around the gas cylinder and the left sides of the op rod guide and barrel shank were contacting the edge of the stock. I clearanced the area below and around the gas cylinder with a 1/2-inch sanding drum on a Dremel hand grinder. The other two spots only required a few strokes of a coarse file. The Sarco stock is a direct copy of the military original and it fits the M1A receiver pretty well, but it could still benefit from some adjustment. We’re not building a match rifle (which would entail a much more extensive bedding job), we’re just trying to achieve full contact between the receiver and the stock. I traced the outline of the receiver on the wood with a pencil and clamped the stock in my Grizzly mill/drill. Then, I routed the wood on the inside of the pencil lines with a 1/4-inch ball end mill to create grooves for epoxy.

Back at the work bench, I installed my bedding fixture on the barrel. This “fixture” is simply a unitized gas system with the lip of the front band ground off. Next, the barreled receiver is dropped in the stock and the relative positions of the fixture and ferrule are adjusted with a piece of heavy wire (coat hanger) so the bottom edge of the front band is even with or slightly higher than the bottom of the stock ferrule. This slight upward angle of the action will result in some downward pressure on the barrel to dampen barrel harmonics. M1As rarely shoot their best with the barrel free-floated. After test fitting the rifle in the wood and adjusting the piece of wire for the correct angle, we are ready to apply some epoxy bedding compound to the action and the stock.

Brownell’s Acra-Bed

I have built, rebuilt and accurized M1As since the 1980s. For most of my career, I used Bisonite, a steel impregnated brown epoxy which disappeared off the market a decade ago. Since then, I usually bed with Marine-Tex, a hard grey epoxy originally designed for repairing boats. For this project, I chose the Brownell’s Acra-Bed system mainly out of a desire to try something new Epoxies come in two parts, the resin and hardener, and must be mixed in a specific ratio. I use plastic yogurt cups and mix the two parts with a wooden tongue depressor. Then, the epoxy is packed into the stock and applied to the action and the two are assembled and allowed to dry until the epoxy is rubbery, and the excess can be trimmed away. I then let the assembly dry overnight. This whole process can be a bit messy and paper towels should be kept handy. I get epoxy on my hands and sometimes my clothes.

The Acra-Bed system is like using a caulking gun. The epoxy is supplied in tubes and the gun is re-usable. Drop an epoxy cartridge into the gun, install a nozzle and start bedding. The nozzle precisely measures the resin and hardener as it is applied. When you are done, remove the nozzle and throw it away and cap off the epoxy cartridge. My kit did not include release agent for some reason, so I applied a light coat of Brownell’s Acra Release aerosol (081-028-000) to the contact surfaces of the receiver. I use this same product when I’m bedding with Marine-Tex. Paste wax will also act as a release agent. DON’T FORGET RELEASE AGENT!

One last step before we start applying bedding compound to the stock is claying up any voids in the receiver where epoxy could flow and lock the action to the stock. These areas include the horseshoe at the rear of the receiver, the areas just above the rear of the receiver legs and the hole for the connector lock pin at the front bottom of the receiver. It’s a good idea to apply painters’ tape to the stock to catch any overflow of epoxy when the stock and action are squeezed together to minimize clean-up.

With clay and release agent applied to the receiver and tape on the stock I squirted epoxy into the routed areas of the stock and on the contact points of the receiver and set the rifle in the stock with our bedding wire in place on the ferrule. As the rifle and stock are mated some excess epoxy will be squeezed out on to the stock. This is normal. Allow the epoxy to dry for a few hours until it becomes rubbery enough to trim away the excess then set the rifle aside for at least 12 hours before separating the stock and action. Some people bed the top and bottom of the stock at the same time, but I prefer to do it in two separate steps. With the top of the stock completed, the same procedure is applied to the contact points of the trigger assembly. The left and right pads of the trigger housing are traced on the wood, routed and bedded along with the rear area behind the trigger. An important point to remember when bedding the trigger housing is to maintain clearance for trigger movement. A 5/16″ groove is milled down the center of the rear bedding pad to keep the trigger from contacting the wood. Failure to do this may result in the rifle doubling. Also, when bedding the trigger housing, don’t fully lock the trigger guard. We want resistance when the trigger guard is locked to keep the rifle tight in the stock and bedding with it slightly open will pull the rifle into the stock nicely.

Rifle Hardware

Before we finish the stock, the external hardware will be fitted. The original buttplate assemblies consisted of a hard rubber pad protected by a folding steel shoulder rest and a sling swivel which could be rotated to the left, allowing the rifle to be slung flat across a soldier’s back. The original assemblies are rarely encountered today and command a premium price if you can find one. Sarco supplied a new repro butt plate assembly minus some mounting hardware and a correct sling swivel. The kit I received was a prototype and I expect later ones will include all necessary screws and small parts. Some fabrication work was necessary to complete the assembly.

The first piece that is mounted to the stock is an aluminum bracket (BRACKET ASSEMBLY, SHOULDER REST) which is part #11 in the attached exploded diagram. The folding shoulder rest is mounted to this plate. Two wood screws, which resemble slightly smaller versions of an M1 Garand upper butt plate screw, secured the bracket to the wood. I dug around in my “coffee can of miscellaneous screws” and found a couple that worked. The shoulder rest came permanently attached to the plate with a long rivet. Next, the recoil pad is attached over the previously mounted bracket. It is secured with two long screws sporting large, flat, slotted heads. These screws are proprietary, and you will not find a set at your local hardware store or probably anywhere else.

The shafts of these screws are identical to standard M14 rifle screws except for the large heads needed to secure the pad so I simply used two standard M14 screws from my parts bin and put flat washers under the heads. The upper screw is screwed through the pad into the wood. The lower screw is three inches long, threaded 12-28 on the end and is inserted through the pad and a hole in the stock and into the sling swivel and a threaded sling swivel bushing. The sling swivel is proprietary to the M14A1 but can be fabricated from a standard M14 swivel by drilling out the threaded hole to 5/16 of an inch and narrowing the tab to approximately .175 of an inch. The tab can be thinned using a file, a belt sander or in my case a milling machine. I bolted the swivel to a block of scrap steel and thinned the tab until it was the correct thickness. The threaded bushing acts as a nut and is placed into the 5/16 of an inch hole in the swivel to secure the lower butt plate screw allowing the swivel to rotate left in its slot in the stock. I had to fabricate a bushing on the lathe. As an alternative, if you don’t care about the swivel rotating, you could just use a standard swivel and round off the end to fit in the slot.

Once the pad is secured with the two long screws a pair of rubber plugs are pushed into the screw holes to cover the heads and the butt plate assembly is finished. If you don’t feel you need the folding shoulder rest on your E2 stock, you can purchase a hard rubber pad designed for it from TreeLineM14. This pad would be suitable for a DMR built on a M14A1/M14E2 stock where authenticity wasn’t a requirement. Moving to the front of the stock, a backing plate is dropped into the forend with the pointed end forward. Two screws drop through the holes in the plate to secure the handgrip. Note that there are six holes available allowing the handgrip to be positioned to suit the firer. The screws supplied with the Sarco repro handgrip were 10-24 x 3/8-inch flat head machine screws. I felt they did not sufficiently engage the handgrip bracket, so I swapped them for 10-24 x 1/2-inch screws. Also, I drilled out the original screw holes in the wood from 11/64 of an inch to 3/16 of an inch so the screws would slip through them easier.

The Sarco stock is a duplicate of the G.I. part so that means it includes a hole at the right rear for the selector switch to protrude. Obviously, the M1A receiver does not sport a selector switch (although some did before the 1986 machinegun ban). However, the M14A1 was select fire and did have one so I installed a dummy selector assembly from Fulton Armory (Fulton-Armory.com). Some wood was removed to achieve a nice fit.

Put It Together

Once the buttplate, handgrip, and selector assemblies were fitted they were removed so the stock could be finished. I lightly sanded the wood to remove any stains or fingerprints and wiped it down with mineral spirits. Original M14A1 birch stocks were finished with a coat of tung oil, so I used Minwax Tung Oil finish. Although the repro stock appears to be made from beech wood the final appearance is very close to original birch stocks. If a darker finish is desired, it could be stained before application of the tung oil finish. After drying, the stock was re-assembled.

The only modifications to the M1A itself were the replacement of the muzzle device and handguard. M14A1 rifles sported a muzzle stabilizer assembly that was slipped over the original flash suppressor and secured to the bayonet lug with a clamp. Current production M1A flash suppressors do not include a bayonet lug because some state legislatures are stuck in 1994 and believe that the inclusion of a bayonet lug on a semi-auto M1A makes it a dreaded “assault weapon” so Springfield eliminated them from all production years ago rather than produce two different types. Unfortunately, we need the lug to secure the muzzle stabilizer, so I replaced the commercial flash suppressor with an original G.I. part. A repro stabilizer from Fulton Armory was installed and clamped to the bayonet lug. As far as I could tell, the Fulton part was a duplicate of the original and it was not a cheap casting. The nut was tightened with the same combination tool used on the gas cylinder plug. The extra mass of the stabilizer may loosen the flash suppressor during recoil.

The first M14 handguards were walnut. These were replaced with a slotted fiberglass model early in production. The slotted handguards were found to break easily and heat waves from the barrel disrupted the sight picture, so they were replaced with a solid fiberglass handguard. Current commercial rifles like our M1A test rifle are supplied with solid plastic handguards which look like the later fiberglass models but are much tougher. I have seen pictures of M14A1 rifles with both slotted and solid handguards. I decided to use a slotted version on our project rifle. Slotted handguards are available from Sarco.

The Bipod

An important part of the M14A1 package was the M2 bipod. Early bipods were not produced with an attached sling swivel, but the swivel is necessary for attaching the M14A1 sling correctly. The bipod I used is a commercial production model sold by Springfield Armory and they are still available through the Springfield online store as part #MA5015. The bipod clamps to the gas cylinder behind the gas cylinder lock and is tightened with a hex bolt. The legs are adjustable for height, and they fold rearward for storage when the rifle is transported. From an accuracy standpoint, attaching the bipod to the gas cylinder was bad but a wood stock was simply not strong enough to support it so onto the gas cylinder it went.

Standard M14 rifles were issued with the same 46-inch cotton web M1 sling developed for the Garand. The M14A1 required a longer 64.5-inch model with an extra clip which attached to the foregrip. Correct installation of the sling was critical to avoid damaging the stock in full auto fire. The foregrip must be angled slightly forward with the section of sling between it and the bipod tight. Pulling rearward on the grip will force the rifle down solidly grounding the bipod and allowing better control of the weapon. If the sling is improperly adjusted the foregrip may rip out of the wood ruining the stock. Original slings are scarce nowadays but a good friend donated one for this article.

A quick note on M1A/M14 triggers is in order. A typical M14 trigger may have a pull weight of more than 6 pounds. Our M1A test rifle was just a hair over 5 pounds out of the box. This is good. I was also impressed with the evenly cut hammer hooks and the time Springfield took to serial number the trigger housing to the receiver. Now, a lot of readers out there who haven’t spent much time with M1As or M1 Garands are going to say “five pounds? That sucks!” but there aren’t many trigger options available for this platform. It’s a battle rifle designed in the ’50s. A gunsmith trained on M1A and Garand triggers can reduce the pull to about 4.5 pounds which is the minimum safe pull weight. Below that, the rifle will probably start to double. Please do not mess with these triggers. Nothing good will come from it. That being said, I reduced the pull to 4.75 pounds on this one. I consider that weight a reasonable compromise.

M14 Ammunition 

M14E2 Rifle with Springfield Armory and Sarco Parts

The M14 rifle was designed to fire 7.62×51 NATO ammo. It was not designed for some of the high performance .308 Winchester ammo on the market today. Some commercial rounds may exceed 7.62 NATO pressure levels and resulting in excessive bolt velocity and battering of the receiver and op rod. The M14/M1A platform is tough but there is no reason to push it beyond design limits. Powders in the burning range of IMR4064, H4895 and IMR4895 are recommended. Standard ammo for an infantryman in the Vietnam War era was the 7.62 NATO M80 ball cartridge launching a 147-grain FMJ lead core bullet somewhere north of 2,700 fps. I had a small stash of M80 manufactured by the Lake City ammo plant in 1962 which I sacrificed in the name of science. I also tested Black Hills 168 HPBT Match, IMI 168-grain BTHP “Razor Core” and two handloads. After shooting M1As for many years I have concluded that a standard rifle with a standard weight barrel is a 1.5 MOA rifle on average with good ammo. My testing of our M14A1 clone for this article confirmed this belief. M80 ball will not impress anyone from an accuracy standpoint but it wasn’t designed for rifle matches. Against enemy personnel or light vehicles, it got the job done.

Some writers disparage the M14 for not having an adjustable gas system like the FN FAL, but it didn’t need one. Unlike the FAL, which was a product manufactured by FN for worldwide sales and possibly to third world countries where ammo quality might not be up to NATO standards, the M14 was produced by U.S. Government arsenals and contractors solely for the U.S. military for use with U.S. ammunition. Ammunition quality at U.S. government owned plants like Lake City was tightly controlled. There was no need to fit an adjustable gas system to allow the rifle to function with inferior ammo.

One interesting thing I found was the effect of the muzzle stabilizer on accuracy. Attaching it added 1.2 MOA (on average) to groups. Most of the photos I have seen of the M14A1 in Vietnam show the muzzle device removed. Maybe this was why. Apparently, the device has a negative effect on barrel harmonics. I left it off for most of the accuracy testing. The attached accuracy and velocity chart shows Black Hills leading the pack in the accuracy department. No surprise there. They usually do. I have this fantasy that someday my handloads will outshoot their factory ammo in a rifle test. I’m still working on it. Accuracy testing was done at 100 yards firing from a bench with the rifle supported by a Caldwell “The Rock” front rest and a rear bag.

A Leupold 4.5-14x MkIV scope on a Bassett Machine mount was temporarily attached during testing to reduce sighting errors. I fired six five-round groups with each type of ammo, threw out the largest one and averaged the other five. The rifle functioned flawlessly. After accuracy testing was complete, I removed the optic and installed the muzzle stabilizer, bipod, front grip and sling to get a feel for how the M14A1 felt in its intended role. It was extremely controllable in rapid fire and the forward grip was great. The shoulder rest wasn’t absolutely necessary, but it helped. I found the stock geometry to be comfortable.

The M14A1 had a short service life but the stock design lived on. McMillan Stocks produced a copy in fiberglass known as the M2A that became standard issue on USMC M14 DMRs for two decades. The McMillan was heavier than its wood forebear and dispensed with the forward grip. These DMRs were precision rifles and were not intended for full auto. I see no reason why the Sarco version wouldn’t be a great DMR stock with proper fitting. Precision stocks need to be rigid and the forend of the Sarco stock is thicker than a standard G.I. model because it was intended to be a mounting point for the forward grip assembly. Also, the pistol grip is very ergonomic, allowing a straight back trigger pull and the butt pad has more surface area than a standard stock. I think my Sarco stock will find a home on one of my scoped precision rifles very soon.

Evaluating The PTR “9R PTR 608” (HK94) As A “Survivalist’s Pistol Caliber Carbine” And Accessorizing It.

Mason Dixon Survivalist Association

As you’d know, if you’ve read my posts about the PTR91, I’m a big fan of the modular rifle system Heckler & Koch (H&K) developed in the mid 20th Century. Although I owned an HK91 (7.62x51N) as a young adult, I always wanted an HK94, but couldn’t get it, due to the importation ban and the lack of finding a used one for sale. Even if I had found one, the price for one back then, would have far exceeded what I could afford.

Well along comes PTR with their model “9R PTR 608” 9mm carbine, and behold, my “Unicorn” was within reach. As said many times by yours truly, the modularity of the H&K system outshines any other system of long guns. The ability to quickly change out sub assemblies like stocks, forearms, or trigger groups, along with the fact that many parts for those subassemblies fit some…

Yesterday I took an international flight which means that today I am somewhere else. I have just victoriously concluded a two hour battle with my quarantine hotel and have obtained a fresh pot of coffee served in crockery, as opposed to instant coffee in a paper cup. I am in quarantine for five days because I am among the ranks of the unclean. In other words, I have not bent the knee to our want-to-be overlords and submitted to their death jab.

Actions have consequences. On both sides.

I flew business class which was a practical choice. In business you are treated better; you are more important. Thus, any issues that sprung up due to my unvaccinated status were immediately solved. I was seated at the front of the plane next to a professional from a very large company who was rather high up on the chain. We got talking, we got along, the flight was pleasant. I nursed a cognac for an extraordinary long time so as to avoid the whole mask charade. I had tried the same trick in economy on my previous flight and it hadn’t worked. However, with the same airline in business class I was not bothered once. Viruses may not respect international borders but they sure do respect social ones.

After a long period of silence in which I read a book, and with an hour to go on the flight, the two of us began talking again. The subject of the virus came up. My corporate travel neighbor confidently expressed the opinion that those who had remained stubbornly unvaxxed should have their lives made as miserable as possible until they comply. I smiled and nodded and made some small remarks concerning the strangeness of the whole situation; the contradictory evidence and the rushed nature of the vaccines, but I did it in a way that was entirely neutral and non-combative.

He obviously had no doubt at all that I was vaccinated. His assumption was complete on that scale. I was an equal and the thought never entered his head that I could be a dissenter from the true scientific faith. We were on the same side but more importantly, we were on the same level. And I left him with his comfortable assumptions. I did not break the spell. As someone who tends to be on the combative side of things I rarely shy from a ribald exchange of views. But with the vaxx, as with faith, I tend not to argue.

The weak and the fearful have submitted out of a selfish desire for things to return to normal. Those in charge continue to turn the screws and this causes confusion and further fear. Those who initially succumbed demonstrated a weakness of strength of character, a willingness to bow to peer pressure as much as authority. But now as the third booster threat rises inexorably on an horizon tinged with green, those who got vaxxed are beginning to divide into two camps. On the one hand there are those who will continue to roll up their sleeves and obediently follow the illegal government mandates. On the other side are those who will not get any more jabs. They realise that they were fooled and will not be fooled again.

In the end, this great drama through which we are all living comes down to one thing and one thing only – loyalty. To whom are you loyal? A great many people have shown that they are not even loyal to themselves, let alone to their families or communities. Let alone to God. The lack of moral backbone has been revealing. How easily they acquiesced and how bitter did they become at those who did not.

As I sit in quarantine I find it a small price to pay in relation to waking each morning knowing that my blood passes unadulterated through my veins. Short term pain as opposed to long term gain. Perhaps the short term will become more painful. So be it. We are made to be tested so embrace the suck. With each “privilege” that they remove I become more free. The more they attack the greater my resolve. I do not need to pray to God for strength in this fight because I harbor no doubt. And I will craftily use the tools at my disposal to continually shift the ground in my favor.

In the end they only win because we let them. We have already not fought so many battles against our foes. Now our nations are secular wastelands, spiritual deserts where morals are dictated by faceless bureaucracies. If not at this point then when? Where is your line in the sand? To whom or to what do you pledge your loyalty? With whom do you stand?

The truth will set you free.

Duty

By: T. L. Davis http://twelveround.com/blog/duty

To save the reader the suspense, it doesn’t get any better from here. This is communism. This is what we reviled when presented in the Soviet Union and China. The sense that the state is an everyday concern is now a fact. Americans have been slipped into that cocoon of communism inch by inch. While myself and others have warned about it, read with dread the words of Solzhenitsyn and presented each ratchet click of authoritarian rule to our readers, it’s here.

What are BLM and Antifa if not government thugs unleashed on patriots, seemingly untouchable, while every minor infraction on the right becomes a threat to “democracy;” an insurrection? The committee hearing on the January 6th protesters is one example. The Kyle Rittenhouse case demonstrates in full color the tactics and the response. When patriots are the insurrection, it’s logical to conclude that those who fear them are, in fact, communist usurpers. Is that an admission? I believe so. When the fraudulent president holds an inauguration and surrounds the capitol with barbed wire and troops, is that not an admission? I believe so.

What was the significance of the November 2nd elections when Glenn Youngkin was elected governor of Virginia? It was a rejection of the state as the owners of the children of Virginia. Parents rebelled and used whatever peaceful means they could. They filled the GOP slots at polling places, upwards of 100% of those positions were filled to make sure the votes were properly counted. That’s the price of a republic, civic duty, participation. Matt Bracken said it well in Lies of Omission when he professed the communist belief that: “conservatives are just interested in making money and having babies, they don’t care about this stuff; the infrastructure of society…” This is where that mentality has gotten them, pushed out, rolled over, out-manned and out-maneuvered.

Every aspect of life in America is under assault, employment, banking, medicine, entertainment, dining and even the right to protest one’s daughter being brutally raped in a school bathroom by a skirt-wearing male pervert. All of these things are leverage to force behavior. Right now, that’s accepting the injection of unproven, untested, dangerous chemical solutions. If they can make Americans submit to that egregious show of power, they can do anything. The communists can make them eat bugs, freeze, starve, restrict travel and bankrupt lives.

The influx of illegal aliens at the border has become an invasion and soon, an armed invasion. The group coming up now and, in the future, have been told by NGOs paid for by tax dollars and Soros funds that they have a right to immigrate anywhere they want, that it’s a crime to deny them entry into the United States if they want to go there. What other definition does one have for invasion than that? What other definition of treason is there when such efforts are voted on agreed to and funded by our congress? It gets worse. Wait until these same government-funded NGOs start running elections. If you think voting was pointless before, you haven’t seen anything, yet.

This and the rise of BLM and Antifa are the instigations toward civil war. The patriot is being baited and has been this whole time. They want the reaction so they can confiscate guns, populate labor camps and bring in UN troops to do the dirty work. The communists in government have been busy neutering the military, destroying morale and ensuring that only those faithful to the communist agenda wear the uniform. All it would take to initiate these actions is an act of civil war, of resistance strong enough to get their attention.

What the communist regime has been doing and as far back as mere globalists like Clinton et al, is a disappearance of radicals. They did it to Assange, any number of Clinton associates, Seth Rich seems plausible. Communists act on the Aristotle principle of tyranny “The tyrant, who in order to hold his power, suppresses every superiority, does away with good men, forbids education and light, controls every movement of the citizens and, keeping them under a perpetual servitude, wants them to grow accustomed to baseness and cowardice, has his spies everywhere to listen to what is said in the meetings, and spreads dissension and calumny among the citizens and impoverishes them…” The pandemic achieves all of this and Biden’s plan of having citizens report others for not being vaxxed, achieves even more.

The communist plan relies as much on patriot cowardice as it does bravery. Where they cannot be forced to act, they will be humiliated, watched, reported on, disappeared and rooted out. What does the American patriot do? Pretty simple, actually. Treat them as you have been treated. It is not in the major movement of men and materiel that will achieve the patriot’s goal without giving the communists a victory, it is in adopting their tactics of silent, imperceptible disappearances of the communists. It’s the only way left.

Patriots have relied upon the police to arrest criminals, believing in the system and the oaths they took to enforce the laws equally, but they have not. Patriots have relied on judges to rule correctly according to the constitution and their oaths, but they have not. Patriots have elected and relied upon their representatives to uphold the constitution and their oaths, but they have not. Patriots have relied on the military to uphold the constitution and their oaths, but they have not. There is no anticipation of fidelity to that which veterans have secured over the past centuries and this Veteran’s Day celebration is a slap in the face when communists control all seats of power; when they have transformed the vaunted United States Military into a woke, sychophantic mob swearing allegiance to power, not the constitution or the people.

Patriots have tried voting and the communists have corrupted the system to such a degree that not even 56% who believe the election was fraudulent, the 35% who simply want it overturned are given the respect of an honest investigation. Joe Biden’s support has dropped to 38%, yet he acts as any tyrant, with the certainty that he is right and everyone else can pound sand. I wonder, when looking at Biden, what Ceausescu thought in those final moments.

What should be done? What have they done to patriots? America is at the point in all communist revolutions where the people, if they have weapons and will, can stop it dead in its tracks, can reverse centuries of abuse and infiltration into the culture and the system. They can extract an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or they can watch the nation be flooded with the world’s population through the southern border. They can watch the justice system turned into a process of patriot persecution. They can watch an endless string of trials like Kyle Rittenhouse that’s nothing more than a demonstration of the power of the state to ignore law and reason and put on a show trial of intimidation. But for the aggressive, hostile and biased attitudes of the prosecution, Kyle never would have been tried. But they had to send a message for their little Antifa brothers. The message being: if you defend yourself against the violence of government sponsored goons of BLM and Antifa, you will be put on trial for your life. It’s a question of allowing oneself to be intimidated or to become the intimidator of oppressors and tyrants no matter how petty they are. No one gets out alive. It’s time for serious men to do serious things.

Hotel Australia

BY ADAM

ON NOVEMBER 9, 2021

 … you can check out but you can never leave.

Via Soviet Men I discovered a three part Youtube series by a presenter called Aussie Cossack about a family fleeing Australia for Russia. There is much that could be said about the family, their attitudes and the experiences that have caused them to reevaluate their comfortable suburban Australian experience and take the drastic step of leaving the country to live in what used to be the namesake for persecution.

But times are strange and there is nothing new under the sun.

As an Australian who left Australia for ten years, came back for six years and then left for good in 2017, I know where they are coming from. The events of the last eighteen months and the authoritarian crackdown in Australia was not a surprise to me. That over the top Orwellian nightmare did not emerge from nowhere. Rather, the pieces were always in place for it to freely germinate. All that was needed was the right conditions. Unfortunately, as is often the case, events have proven me correct.

In the first video we get to meet Nick, the father and patriarch of the family. Nick Yancovich is more a less a true blue Aussie, or at least what passes for one these days. From his surname I would surmise that his background is from somewhere in the former Yugoslavia. But he was born and bred in Australia and he possesses that Aussie spirit that I knew well.

I was very impressed with Nick. I was very impressed by the entire family. What impressed me most was their quiet determination not to submit; not to be pushed around by an authoritarian state determined to impose its secular propaganda on their beautiful family. For they are a Christian family and a devout one. And it is obvious from listening to them share their stories and experiences that the strength and unity that they obtain through their faith is the difference between them and those that will not see.

Nick calls Australia a very beautiful cage. It is an apt metaphor. His wife in the second part of the series refers to Australia as a materialistic trap that ensnares its victims with just a little bit of debt here and a little bit of debt there, until there is no way out. They describe being persecuted for their religious beliefs and for standing up for their family values. In the stories that they tell I do not recognise the Australia in which I grew up, but I recognise the people doing the persecuting. They were always there but they never had such a free run as now.

The government did not make it easy for them to leave. They had to justify why exactly they had to go. I am no stranger to this: over twenty five years ago I had to go to an interview with a bureaucrat in order to obtain my first Australian passport. I remember being taken aback by the questions, at the way that my interrogator attempted to both pry into my private life and attempt to concoct strands to weave into a suitable reason to turn down my application. On leaving the country for the first time I still recall the sheer rudeness of border officials as I made my way past checkpoint after checkpoint. I could not understand it then but I understand it now. We have always been this way.

But the sun is shining and the surf is up. Australians put up with a great deal of minor bureaucratic annoyances from an out of control surveillance state because they are lulled into complacency by the feel of the warm sun on bare skin, a cold stubbie of beer close at hand, the faint sound of the surf crashing on a long and empty beach. But as the young wife says in the video, the devil has entered Australia and he is playing havoc with the furniture.

And they want no part of it. And so they are leaving, as did I. According to the information presented in the videos, 60,000 Australian citizens permanently left the country this year so far. They have had enough. They do not want to contribute anymore to a society that is happy to take the fruits of their labor while openly despising them. Contrary to popular opinion on the comments section of the videos, the government will not be unhappy to see them leave. At least, not this government and not in the short term. They are waving goodbye to the troublemakers, to those that might just successfully resist their never ending tightening of the screw. Those left behind are the compliant, the brainless NPCs who shout out ‘Where’s your mask?’ from their balcony to a lone man walking down the street. The stupidity and ignorance deaden the senses and dull the mind. For those still with a functioning brain it is get out or go postal.

The final video shows the departure of the family. Their six year old son, the oldest child in the family, is asked what he thinks about the Australian government. He tries to put a good face on it, he tries to be brave. But you see the pain in his eyes. You see the emotional awareness even in one so young that he is being deprived of everything that he knows because there is no place anymore in modern secular nations for those that won’t toe the progressive line.

While it is a heartbreaking moment, he is better off where he is going. Thanks to the foresight and the moral courage of his parents, he will be one of the lucky ones. Those left behind will have to console themselves with the old adage that they live in the lucky country. Unfortunately for Australia, the luck has run out.

“Raising hell with the bush hippies and the tactical cowboys” – A Class review: OnPoint Tactical’s “Recon Scout” and “Jaeger Scout” classes

Badlands Fieldcraft

I recently attended the Recon and Jaeger Scout courses out in Utah, and what a great couple of classes they were. On Point Tactical has a whole line of Scout classes, designed to fully develop and integrate not only tactical skills, but also wilderness survival, tracking, and other esoteric skills that combine to create a very capable individual.

This parallels my own thoughts as well as others on the proper progression of training for prepared citizens. From OnPoint’s class description: “The Scout tradition is found in many cultures and tribes around the world. Ours is a derivative of the Apache Scout tradition. We focus on ancient skills combined with modern tactics to create a team of extremely effective warriors.

Like the lyrics from the Cody Jinks song that I borrowed the title for this article from, these classes aren’t designed to be Instagram trendy or for the…
