Title: 10/22 & M1A
Post by: Adventure on January 03, 2012, 10:14:47 PM
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?

Adventure

PS: so far I have been told 200 for a basic 10/22 & 1300 for the M1A.

Adventure,

I have a Standard M1A in .308.

I'd like to sell it. Make me an offer.

Keith,

I was rereading the old posts when you got that gun. What is the reason you want to get rid of it? How many times has it been fired? Was it new when you bought it?

I love the gun! Shoots great.

I bought it brand new, and paid about $1700.

Nothing wrong with it. It's probably only had 1 box of ammo run through it. I just want to get an AR right now...and would rather buy it with the money I get from the M1A.

Have a 10/22 and love it. It has about as many add ons as the AR-15. It shoots great and accurate right out of the box. I made mine look cool and all, but not necessary. you can use the 10 round box mag or the 20,30 ,60, 100 drum or the 200 round duel. They sell a kit that you can put two 10/22s together and make machine gun out of them. great varmint gun. I have a red dot on mine with a grooved rail, so I can still use the open sites.

I was at a gun store yesterday and I could buy 2 fully assembled AR-15s for the price of one M1A. It is very tempting...BUT I really want the M1A. Of course I could go the AR-10 or the AR-15 in the 7.62x39.

Which are you looking at?

Could I have my gunsmith look at it?

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.

Adventure,
   I agree with the professor about the 10/22.  I've had one for about 25 years and easily put 2000 round through it a year, clean it on occasion, and never had any problems.  I've got it all tricked out in the original wood stock and iron sites!!  Lets say its the "retro" look.  Ruger also makes a model 77/22, which is the same rifle only in bolt action, case that's your preference

I've never shot the SOCOM M1A, but have heard good things.  And since you ain't a ninja you'll need all the gun you can handle.

Yeah, if he doesn't mind coming down to Sac with you. You could probably just look at it yourself, though. It's a pretty simple design and operation. Simple bolt, operates dry/no grease, only been fired about 30 times. I still have the box and manufacturers paperwork.
