Well, I am pricing out the Ruger 10/22 & the Springfield Standard M1A.
Does anyone know of any good deals out there on these two guns?
And if anyone has these, do you have any recommend upgrades for them?
PS: so far I have been told 200 for a basic 10/22 & 1300 for the M1A.
Everyone MUST have a 10/22. MUST! Most pawn shops will have 1/2 a dozen sitting on the shelves and you can get a decent one for $100-$125.
Resell it after using, then get a nice upgraded one. You can put more money in the upgrades than the basic rifle - I'll try to post mine - @50 yards I have a ragged hole.
M1A vs AR15 - Buy both.
AR is a much more flexible of a platform, but then again - you are comparing it to a M1A. Buy both.
All of that said, I do not have a M1A. I can't justify it in my inventory - the platform just isn't flexible enough for me.
M1A SOCOM: about $1400 - 1700
M1A Traditional: about $1000 - 1200
SOCOM is heavy and a bad mother. Buy one for me while you're at it.
