  THE ENERGIZER RIFLE: M-14 Sniper Rifle
Unlike other internal-magazine service rifles of the period -- which could be reloaded with rounds still in the magazine -- the M1's internal 8-round clip could not be reloaded until the 8th and final round was fired and the empty clip ejected.
Though initially deployed as a standard issue rifle with a scope, the M14 was soon specifically selected by the Army's Marksmanship Unit to be converted into a dedicated, purpose-built sniper rifle.
The M21 is the semi-automatic sniper rifle adaptation of the popular M14 rifle.

 Sniper_rifles - The real meaning from Timesharetalk wikipedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Sniper rifle is a term most frequently applied to rifles used by military or law enforcement to ensure accurate placement of shots at greater ranges than other small arms.
Rifle barrels employed in sniper rifles are normally of precise manufacture and of a heavier cross section than more traditional barrels in order to reduce the change in impact points between a first shot from a cold barrel and a follow-up shot from a warm barrel.
For most rifles equipped with a telescopic sight, it is necessary to have this area raised slightly, because the telescope is positioned higher than iron sights, and the shooter should steady his cheek against a rifle while aiming.

The need for a new precision platoon-level, semi-automatic rifle became apparent to Soviet military leadership in the 1950s, and in 1958 a contest among Soviet arms designers was opened for the creation of such a rifle.
The rifle also has a bayonet lug for close-quarters combat, although the mounting of a bayonet will cause a slight change in center of gravity, affecting the handling qualities of the rifle, and possibly accuracy.
As such, it is not a sniper's rifle in the sense used by, among others, the U.S. military, but the first example of what is today known as a designated marksman's weapon.
