    As a follow up, can an M14 be converted to a pistol grip?

    Ruger mini 14 aftermarket , sks aftermarket, heck even the ruger 10-22 with aftermarket stock lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    G3 clone in the flavor of the JLD PTR-91. Best of the best.

    I'm totally confused as I search for the rifles mentioned.

    HK seems to only sell to LE or military. Can I purchase an HK? Some of the clones seem to be the same.

    What is available for non LE/Mil purchase?

    Short barrel, pistol grip, 7.62mm, and "end of days" gun for hunting/defense is what I'm seeking.

    Short Barrel requires a tax stamp. You can buy HK thru a dealer, get a good clone. The JLD that Rob mentioned is suppose to be really good. I haven't shot one myself yet, but have only read good reviews. I am starting the long term (for me) process of building my on AR with a collaspible stock. I have also put together a L1A1 from a parts kit. You can go this route you just have to buy the "gun" part from a FFL dealer, the rest you can order. It is not to hard but I would suggest that you have someone who knows what they are doing head space the barrel. Hope this helps
