New project (old school)

Yes, I have not been posting much lately - between work taking up the majority of my time (the FDA arrives today for our pre-approval inspection. I work in a $800 Million building, that for two years now, has been getting ready to be liscenced - as in, we've yet to sell any product). My wife is halfway through another six month chemo regimen, so I've been much busier around the house. And to top it all off, I'm several months into a new project, building something I last played with thirty odd years ago ...... If you think Saabs are quirky, or have a cult following, here's another piece of history -

Sure looks like an old M1 Garand or maybe an M14. I really like the M14, good deer killer from your back porch. Just be careful not hit those westbound cars on Rt. I-70. Maryland State Police might take a dim view of such activity.

Son of M1 Garand - the M-14. Distinguished by the different gas cylinder assembly, longer barrel, and the all important select-fire switch. The M1 Garand was strictly a semi-auto, while the M-14 is capable of full-auto fire. Even though it was "retired" as the main service rifle some forty-five years ago, it's never really gone away ...... It is currently the go-to weapon in Afghanistan, due to it's superior ballistics and range compared to the "black rifle".
I've been wanting one ever since my time with the Navy ........

Finally able to post ! Been getting error messages the last several days .....

Ah, thanks for clarifying there. At least I was in the same family of guns, and not totally wrong. I've been getting no error messages on here guys...

Since the M-14 was developed from the M1, they certainly look alike (and I wouldn't mind owning one, either). The M1 certainly enjoyed a surge of popularity after showing up with Clint Eastwood in "Gran Torino" . An excellent movie, in my opinion .........with a clever ending !
