    Put my norinco m14 on a diet?

    Hi everyone
    I found it a bit heavy going in the bush going after moose all day.. What's the best way to take pounds off?
    Thanks
    Dan

    I take my M14 hunting as well: it gives you a lot of sympathy for the soldiers that used to carry one into battle!

    I am not sure if there is really a way to trim it down enough to matter. Some people have cut one down to a "shorty" and done other modifications, but I am not sure that such reductions are actually worth it.

    Some others may be able to chime in, but the user's own endurance is the best way to help with that. In other words, I don't take mine hunting a lot.

    I've taken 2 deer with my M14 & my solution to it's hefty physique is to sit in a treestand... There's just no getting around the fact that they weigh a bit more...

    Running it without the upper hand guard can reduce it by a few grams. Barrel wont get too hot since youre hunting and probably not going to shoot off for than 5rnds.

    Does the synthetic stock contribute to its weight? Is the wood stock any lighter?
