Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The G.I. stock has the cutout for the selector switch. Fulton offers a false switch to plug the hole, or it can be done with fiberglass, or a walnut plug. Most of the parts on this Fulton-modified Polytech are G.I., including a chrome-lined Winchester barrel. The excellent Chinese receiver was forged.

The custom M14S had the complete G.I. cleaning set in its trap. Rod, handle, oil, patches, and two brushes.
The addition of a scope was made easy by the S&K mount. While not as rigid as some mil-spec mounts, it provides a great means to extend the usage range of the rifle while offering a great way to test ammunition and the limits of the rifle. We left it on for the testing and were still able to use the iron sights. The stock is mil-spec original walnut, with the slim profile of the original M14. With the accessories in the butt trap, fully loaded and scoped as shown, this rifle weighed nearly 13 pounds. Recoil was nil. Accuracy was fabulous. We liked the look of the early M14 vented barrel cover. Later ones don’t have the holes.
The S&K mount has one screw to retain it. It was mighty tight, and we left it on the rifle, preferring to test the others with iron sights. The old stock has some battle scars still showing. The tab in front of the trigger guard is the safety, shown in the firing position. The stock had all the proper accessories in the trap, which added a bit to the overall weight.
