This weapon is inspired by the Mk 14 Mod 1 EBR, a modernized update to the venerable Vietnam-era M14, which itself was intended to be a modernized update to the WWII/Korean War-era M1 Garand. The M1 Garand is the weapon after which This Machine from Fallout: New Vegas and the Battle Rifle from the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC were modeled.
I started with the base game This Machine mesh and chopped down the barrel and stock before adding the pistol grip, buttstock, and railed handguard from the Marksman Carbine and the buffer tube from the Assault Carbine. Next, I modified the Service Rifle magazine to resemble a 20-round .308 mag and then added the flash hider from the legacy-content Assault Rifle and a modified 9mm Pistol hammer as the safety paddle. Finally, I converted the mesh to use the Service Rifle's handling, firing and reload animations.
