You just jumped the shark. I can no longer take anything you say with any seriousness.
My uncle was issued an M14. I can assure you that it was not black plastic.
My uncle still remembers the serial number of his rifle he was issued 45 years ago. He had to recall it from memory on demand, when ever any one ask,
at any time. And he still can to this day.
When he was sleeping in between guard shifts in the forest of Germany during the cold war, standing in the face of the Russian army, he would sleep
with his boots on and his rifle by his side.
The only way you were going to come into possession of his rifle was if he was already dead.
To say that they would just grab any old beat up rifle and go marching with in the presidential inaugural parade, to represent his branch of service,
would be highly insulting to him to say the least.
