The M21, is the M14 sniper variant that captured our attention on the hollywood screen. The elusive American Semi-Auto sniper variant serving from the Vietnam era all the way to the 2012 time frame during the Global War on Terror era… to righting Russian troops in… 2022?!

The M21 base rifle is not an easy project, as early armorers realized that the M14 was not an easy rifle to “accurize”… and yet up until the 2010 era, the M14 patterned sniper rifle seemed to be adored by many but understood by only a few snipers.

We delve into the M21’s intricacies, and how the rifle we show is actually a hybrid U.S. Navy M14 SSR and a proper M21.
