FINISH AND MATERIALS

All new construction or refurbished Smith Enterprise rifles are given a Melonite MIL STD AMS 2753B treatment where applicable. Manganese phosphate is applied to all barrel assemblies, op rods, trigger assemblies and other small parts. All Smith Enterprise rifles and related components are made from the highest quality 8620, or 4140 chrome moly steel materials.

OPERATOR-LEVEL MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR KIT

Spare parts required at the individual operator level, together with a cleaning kit can be custom-tailored by SEI to meet individual customer requirements.

DETACHABLE BOX MAGAZINE

A principal advantage of the M-14/M-21 design is the simple fact that a vast number of serviceable magazines in government storage for this weapon. This fact represents a tremendous cost-savings to the resource managers. Additionally, the USGI specification 20 round magazine is now in full scale production and is available from numerous vendors.

EASE OF OPERATION AND POSITIVE SAFETY

No change over existing M-14 manual of arms.

CANNOT BE IMPROPERLY ASSEMBLED

The basic design of the M-14 has the inherent advantage of precluding improper assembly. This feature does not change with Smith Enterprise’s modernized M-14 design.

M1907 TARGET/SNIPER SLING

An M1907-type leather or synthetic Target/Sniper sling is provided and highly recommended for the M-14SE. For the MK14 SEI variant we endorse the use of a three-point assault sling, as shown above in Fig. 7.

OPTICAL SIGHTING SYSTEM

LeupoldSmith Enterprise, Inc. does not manufacture optical systems. However, our firm collaborates closely with Leupold & Stevens Optical Company and is the sole commercial distributor for USG sales for that firm. We are confident that Leupold can easily meet any anticipated requirements for the M14SE. Four Leupold tactical “Mark 4” scopes in particular are ideal for the M14SE: the Mark 4 1.5-5X20 MR/T M2 with SPR reticle; the 3-9X36mm MRT; the 3.5-10X50mm L/RT and the Mark 4 4.5-14X50 L/RT models. Mark 4 scopes in the First Focal Plan (FFP) version are now available.

COMPONENT CARRYING CASES

Currently Smith Enterprise, Inc. has begun production of component-carrying cases. At present we manufacture a suppressor /tool pouch carrier, a magazine pouch and a cover for the Leupold tactical spotting scope. These covers are normally supplied in coyote brown. Other colors upon request, when ordered in quantity.

CONCLUSION

We firmly believe that after examining how the M-14 battle rifle can be transformed into a modern, modular, extremely reliable and highly accurate sniper system, that you will clearly share our enthusiasm for our innovative technical approaches, quality control measures. Equally important, we also believe that our fiscally responsible approach is in the best interest of the taxpayer, while offering peerless performance for many years to come.
