Awesome Video of the Day: U.S. RIFLE, CALIBER 7.62MM, M14

How did no one tell me about this channel? They have tons of cool videos, including a series produced by the armed forces explaining the operation, disassembly and reassembly of weapons to the troops. Very cool.

This is Awesome: Rheinmetall Fire Control Unit for Grenade Launchers (NDIA)
