The long waited U.S. Rifle M14 is finally here. This time, WE-Tech (WE) designed from the ground up, incorporating their all new "Open Bolt" gas blowback system. Liberal use of steel parts & a never-been-done-before one-piece synthetic polymer stock has allow for a near-perfect resemblance of its real steel counterpart. Both internal & external engineering features will be appreciated by collector & airsoft enthusiasts alike. As a airsoft player/collector, you must buy one to believe how realistic this GBBR is.
The first thing grabs your attention is how HEAVY this gun is! The WE M14 may not have as much recoil as the real deal but rest assured, it is there, as the bolt slams back and fourth with each shot the gun gives a reassuring kick as the mechanism cycles to cock the hammer and load the next round into the chamber. The recoil is helped by the fact that this gun's receiver is all metal making it weigh quite a bit along with the wood colored fiber resin stock. The model is designed with the real deal in mind. The receiver, butt plate, barrel, sights are metal, while the stock is a fine wooden pattern polymer material.
While it may not have wooden furniture, the fiber resin block of a stock is without question extremely solid and weighty, yet exceedingly pleasant to the touch. The heat shield surrounding the barrel for the length of the stock is formed ABS and colored precisely to match that era's plastic heat shield. All in all, the aesthetics of the gun leave little to be desired as even the fake wooden stock is realistic in the way it is made of a more modern material for a more modern era.
The model utilizes an open bolt operating system. that makes the gun fuctioning at a top realistic level. The magazine that comes with it is metal and it holds 20 BBs, which is the real capacity of the real M14 rifle. As per every M14 model, it can shoot in semi and full auto. The selector lever is located on the right hand side of the gun, and it is as easy as turning it clock or counter clock wise. All of the operating pieces, the charging handle, bolt catch, etc are fully functional like any other GBB rifle. Depending on the gas used, the WE M14 can reach up to 390 FPS (or even more under some conditions) that combined with the 50+ cm long barrel can shoot at fairly long distances.
M14 rifle, officially the United States Rifle, 7.62 mm, M14, is an American selective fire automatic rifle that fires 7.62?51mm NATO (.308 Winchester) ammunition. It gradually replaced the M1 Garand in US Army service by 1961 and in US Marine Corps service by 1965. It was the standard issue infantry rifle for U.S. military personnel in the Contiguous United States, Europe, and South Korea from 1959 until it was replaced by the M16 rifle in 1970.
