Because of all of Mike McElfish's (Uncle Mike) generosity to the troops, SEI built him a Crazy Horse M14SE rifle. He was so excited about it and the effectiveness of the rifle he wrote us an email. Here is what Uncle Mike wrote:
Thank you so very much for the job on the Crazy Horse, M-14
I took it out to the range with my son and his wife while
they were here on leave, and the guy next to us had a couple of steel targets
that he had made. So we set them out at 100 yards and let them have it. The target is 1/2 inch steel plate and the ammo was
Remington 308, 150 grain out of the box from walmart.
This seems to be a pretty quick way to put holes in a steel
plate, might not be just where you want them, but with some more practice maybe
I will get there.
Thanks again for putting together such a
beautiful rifle. This thing really kicks *ss!
As an AZ native, I'm a big SEI supporter. My Platoon Sergeant, XXX, coordinated with SEI and got us Vortex Flash Hiders, platoonwide. From the long guns to the M4s, MK46s, and MK48s we were good to go. At night the Taliban never knew what hit them, and our AO presented many opportunities to put them to good use. Odds are that several American lives were saved thanks to your incredibly well made products.
I used XF-7 with great success on every weapon system I was issued, from the M2 on down. Mad Dog McClung was kind enough to give my platoon a bunch of it, and I'm really glad to see that you folks sell it for him, as it's the best weapons lube I've found.
Feel free to use this testimonial if you're so inclined, as long as you redact my and XXX's name beforehand. Thanks again for all you do.
