Im more of a traditionalist, and want the best Semi Auto. So I would go with an LRB M14SA.



If you want a M1a that is all "Fagged out", but still want the best quality you can waste your $$ on, This ugly worthless M14SA would fit the bill.



If you are the type that wants it all "Fagged out" I would say dont waste your money screwing up a good M1a, and put your money on a DSA FAL., And put all the pimp-Tapco shit on it you want.

If you want a Main Battle Rifle, your choices come down to FAL, M1A, or HK.
I think all 3 are worthy, world class rifles.
For me, it came down to the picking of very small nits to choose the FAL.

YMMV

Featherweight bolt for hunting. Hard to best 5lb .308s for carry.

FAL for simi-auto. I'm sold on 'em. DSA is the best, but around $1200!

I picked the same nits, and built an M14/M1A. <shrug>

Of course, I later built a FAL-- and I'm trying to get the parts for a G3 too, so I don't know-- [shrug]
--they're all fun.

Go with a M1A.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 11:47:49 AM EDT
I like my FAL over my M1A, I have both. The FAL is a more robust design. The M1A will be a little more accurate with irons compared to FAL iron sites. The FAL has a shorter site radius. But get a couple arms mounts and have a scope one one and red dot on the other. Some people complain there is no forward assist on the FAL but that's and easy fix, just get the Israeli Original Forward Assist Cocking Handle.


Link Posted: 2/10/2006 11:49:14 AM EDT
I have that and a HK91 clone. +1 for the M1A.

HK91-A3

It's BLACK & it looks EVIL.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 11:52:40 AM EDT
Bolt Gun:
Remington PSS, or their varmint series

Auto Loaders:
AR-10 is super accurate and AR based
M1A is nice all around weapon system but not as accurate as the AR-10 without modifications or upgrades.
HK 91, expensive but with the right ammo can be very accurate
FAL, I only owned one but didn't like the accuracy.

I figured you would say "Get a pistol!"

If you have the cash - M1As are hard to beat.

But we budget minded fellows have had great affection for FAL's...

I've never been keen on G3 types because of the fluted chamber and way-forward cocking handle but the world has handled worse problems.

I'm partial to the HK. I have a Greek SAR-8 and am waiting for a new PTR-91 from Sarco.

My preference is the FAL, plenty of parts and inexpensive mag availability. I got rid of my Cetme/HK clone as the fluted chamber design and roller action limits you to milsurp, brass ammo and mangles your empties.

Well, PHuckin' A, Phil, YOU'VE got all the ammo!
And WE still don't have an answer to WHAT KIND of .308 bigscrun wants except for 'bad-ass'...BOLT or AUTO.

If you're willing to sell him some ammo, well, he might tell us what kind of .308 he wants, depending on how much ammo he has and how he wants to 'expend' it!


This would be good to know...ONE SHOT - ONE KILL...or, BUMP IT!

I prefer my FAL over my M1A, but both are excellent rifles.

Now that makes two of us. I wonder how many of us have both but like one over the other?

Scrun where is the poll? This thread is worthless with out one...

I like my M1A over my AR10. I also have an M1 tanker that really fun to shoot. They all like surplus ammo. But the AR10 is picky about reloads.

Yours is picky?

My AR10 has eaten everything from 110gr to 220gr reloads. (110, 125, 147, 155, 168, 175, 190, 220).

The choice of Uncle Sam's Yacht Club.


Link Posted: 2/10/2006 9:26:52 PM EDT
M14/M1a is my first choice, in the nice climate we have here, a GI chrome lined barrel and synthetic stock work great. The FAL is a great MBR, but it has more springs than an M1a has parts and the triggers SUCK. I have shot FALs that have been sent away to guns smiths and DSA to have a trigger job and they still suck compaired to a GI trigger in the M14/M1a or a NM M14/M1a trigger. YMMV

AR-10. Get an Eagle Arms lower and the Armalite's uppers: one carbine and one A4, float the tube and be happy!

Man, I hate to say that truth, but get all!

I love my AR10, slowly but surely its replacing my FAL as my one true love. I have trust issues from all the adverse propaganda, but she is becoming always faithful in my mind. Expensive mags are my only issue thus far.

That said, my DSA FAL is one helluva weapon in its own right, cheap mags and always ready.


I have a G3. I took it back to Ohio to keep in my other safe, while dependable and fun, nuff said.


M1A is on the short list. I cant speak for her yet, but I cant see what an expensive mag wood stock weapon could possible have to offer that would make me replace the AR10 or FAL as number one beeyatch.

Link Posted: 2/11/2006 3:36:22 PM EDT

If you have the cash - M1As are hard to beat.


I've been thinking for a while that an M1A would be cool to save for but I read a thread elsewhere on the site that said Springfield was having quality control issues.

Anyone else heard that or is it just the rumor mill working?

I do love the Garand family of guns...

I used to be a FAL guy all the way, but after buying and shooting the PTR-91K, G3 clone, has changed my point of veiw. The K model with the dimentions of the smaller HK93 with less envelope weight provides excellent accurate handleing and balance. Out of box preformance is outstanding and has become my favorite 308 battle rifle.

With reviews like that how can you dissagree? I'm pretty sure ELF actually writes for Guns n' Ammo.
