    It's the long.. I didn't realize I was in the wrong spot.. I'm new here.. I bought the rifle sort of as a dual purpose rifle for hunting and just screwing around shooting targets.. I got sold on it for the proven reliability and the cheap price.. And yes it gives you respect for the men that used it for more than sport..
    Thanks for the replies
    I guess I'll just stop whining and man up

    You're not in the wrong spot. No problem asking questions about the M14 here. Welcome to the forum.

    I wonder if its all relative.
    Everything these days is made smaller and lighter. What is light today will be heavy 2 years from now.
    Will people in 10 years be moaning about hunting with a 6lb rifle? Probably.
    Personally I am taking the opposite approach. Train and practice with lots of heavy gear. Then when you use the normal kit it will seem light.
    Think of what previous generations have managed to do with much heavier and less ergo gear.
    IMO we should man up and focus on making ourselves capable of carrying and doing more, instead of always focusing on making things easier for us.
    sorry for preachin

    A good post.

    I used to hunt with a 12 lb savage 10BA.
    Now I have m14 shorty, went yesterday with it. It's an awesome rig. I don't mind the weight at all.

    Stop what you're doing. Take a flat-head screwdriver and remove the butt plate from the stock. You won't believe the difference! I just did this yesterday afternoon, now it's like a whole new gun. It weighs almost 6lbs less! (almost )

    That cleaning kit trap-door assembly belongs on top of a tank; not at the end of my rifle. It's off to stay!

    Second vote for an Axis II XP. So light, and you can keep your m14 original cool!

    A Blackfeather stock assembly, with the right butt stock certainly feels lighter than a standard stock.

    Rubber replacements can be had for the steel plate and ditch the cleaning kit. I'm pretty sure its close to a 1 lbs you lose off the gun.

    Also maybe some weight lifting might be in order to help.

    It all depense if you use a scope or not. I would say the first thing to go should be the cleaning kit the big hunk of metal that that is the stripper clip guide. If you use a scope remove the front site.
