Springfield M1A or FAL clone. stay away from aluminum framed G3's

IMHO either the AR-10, or the DSA FAL.

the springfield m1a! the m14 is the best rifle ever made at all imho. i have one and would like to get another.

For the money? Has to be the DSA STG58A "Authentic Austrian FAL" — Superb build quality, finish and pedigree for around $800 - with lifetime warranty, no less! Also, you get all the FAL advantages — cheap, readily-available magazines, and plenty of replacement and upgrade parts. It's a no-brainer!

I'd have to agree with the people who said FAL, even though I'm an M1A owner. If I had to do it again today, I'd have a FAL instead of the M1A simply because of mag costs.

DSA FN-FAL, M1A, or AR-10.

FAL or ChiCom M14S cpermd

hmmm, was about to send a big reply.. but that term "post-ban"... I dont have any semi's that "new" [:D] The M1A is a classic that is still selling good! I'm thinking my next "big'n" will be an FAL, I hear a lot of good things about it, now I have to spend some time finding out what model is best and what to look for...

I guess that it depends on your budget. For pure accuracy, the Springfield Armory M1A is hard to beat! If you're looking for the best ergonomics and reliability in a battle rifle, then the DS Arms FN-FALs are the way to go. If you want to get slightly more radical than the M1A for a sniper grade rifle, then I'd say try and Armalite AR-10 model.

AR10. Versatility and accuracy defined.

Has to be the FAL. It will handle ammo that will bend an M14 op rod into a pretzel, group well, and is almost as ergonimic as the AR. M14 clones are great for Service Rifle on a breezy day, but the FAL is a battle rifle.

In my OPINION: 1) STG58A from DS Arms rifle or carbine $800 - $850. 2) AR-10(T) rifle or carbine about $1500 used and fine !! 3) To me a pre-ban fits here. FN 50.00 L.A.R. Match - about $2,000 - $2300. 4) SR-25 Stoner - about $3000 - $3500 (My most "honorable" mention would be the M1A1.) My pick for the money ? The ArmaLite AR-10(T).

The M1 Garand, it hates my fingers. (or maybe it ates my fingers .)
Link Posted: 12/29/2001 8:46:42 AM EDT
STG58 works great for me!

AR-10 Becauces it's how we got the AR-15. Stay loyal! And Armalite has a lifetime warranty.

another vote for the Garand i wanted a Fal then i got a springfield Garand. i got to say the Garand is a very good buy!. and i u really really want 308 instead of 30-06 get a garand chambered in .308 course id rather have the 30-06 my self

I have never seen it at Perry or the Old Fort range or been able to document a KB. I have five and trying to get more. I think you are spreading more internet urban legends. cpermd
