Black Hawk Down is one of the Top 10 modern military movies that has come out in the past thirty years. The movie shows us the bravery and heroism of American soldiers on the ground in Mogadishu in 1993. One of the most iconic weapons from that battle was M14, used by Delta Force Operator Randy Shughart. Shughart courage under fire and, against immense odds, saved many soldiers’ lives. Fulton Armory seeks to honor that legacy of honor, courage, and heroism with the Black Hawk Down M14 tribute rifle.
Below is the product description for the Fulton Armory’s Black Hawk Down M14 Tribute rifle.
Our M14 Black Hawk DMR Tribute
Randy Shughart was a United States Army Delta Force soldier who participated in Operation Restore Hope in Somalia in 1993. During the operation, Shughart and his team were tasked with protecting a downed Black Hawk helicopter and its crew.
As the situation became more dire, Shughart, armed with his M14 rifle, requested permission to engage the enemy on the ground. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, Shughart valiantly fought off enemy forces and saved the lives of several of his fellow soldiers.
Sadly, Shughart ultimately lost his life in the battle, but his heroism and bravery have continued to inspire military personnel and firearms enthusiasts alike.
In honor of Randy Shughart’s legacy, Fulton Armory has developed our own iteration of the famous Shughart M14. Crafted with high-quality parts and designed to replicate the look and feel of the original rifle. More than just a “clone” our tribute M14 Black Hawk DMR is exactly how we would assemble a Delta Force rifle used during an urban mission to protect a downed Black Hawk helicopter and its crew.
