What is the cheapest you can get a M14/m1a for? How hard is it to build it yourself?

An M14 is hella expensive. M1A is about $1500 for a good one.

Building it yourself can be a chore if you dont have the right tools

Spend $2,000.00 and get a real good one

Cheap and m14 don't go well together. Ditto what mrclean said but you could find a Polytec chinese copy for under a grand and it could be a good shooter with some upgrades.

What he said, have the money and do it right the first time. If you want a SA Inc gun Ive got a loaded in walnut stock that Ill part with for $1400, thatll get me close to a LRB of my own.

I am SERIOUSLY thinking of having an LRB, chrome lined barrel, Scout action made up for my Scout Squad and tossing an LRB onto my full size M1A......then both will be nearly pure GI, except for the Springie Muzzle Break on the Scout.....

snipAR_15: From what I understand you need a fair amount of skill and tools to assemble an M14-type rifle. It is not like assembling an AR15 where you just put everything together and they pretty much work. You have to mill and machine for final assembly.

I would like to invite you visit the ARFCOM's
unofficial M1A/M14 forum

You may find some interesting infor there.

I got a NIB M1A Standard w/walnut stock for 1250 dollars at a gun show recently from a great dealer, whom I will be doing buisness with again in the near future. :)

Tell me more. I know nothing about the M14 and these type of purchase options.

I bought an LRB just before Christmas. I was almost worth the price just to talk to those yankee boys.
