History of the M14
The M-14 For Sale is the result of numerous attempts to improve the functional design of the M1 rifle, the most advanced infantry rifle of its time. Changes included adding full automatic firing capability and replacing the 8-round clips with 20-round box magazine. Manufacturers like Winchester and Remington had their hands in the evolution of the M-14 For Sale, but it was Springfield Armory that developed the T44, a service rifle designed on a budget using the gas cut-off system of the T47.
The T44 rifle participated in various military trials (even freezing conditions) against several competitors from 1952 to 1954, and outperformed the T47, and T48 because of its slightly lighter weight, self-compensating gas system, and the fact that the T44 could be manufactured on the existing machinery built for the original M1. In 1957, the U.S. formally adopted the T44 as the U.S. infantry service rifle, designated M14.
The first production contracts for the M-14 For Sale were awarded to the Springfield Armory, Winchester and Harrington & Richardson.
