What is the better deal? I'm building an m14 and can get a springfield armory inc. reciever for $525 or should I go with a lrb arms reciever? does the springfield ones have any setbacks? Is there an even better deal somewhere else?

With SAI receivers it is always best to inspect them to ensure they are in spec. One down and dirty way of doing this is to have a USGI type scope mount like an SEI or Sadlak on hand and make sure it easily installs. That is not a terrible price for a M1A receiver they used to be $450 before the election. I believe the LRBs are $820 (dealer pricing). Is it worth the extra $300? Some would say so. I would say if you are going through the extra expense of doing a custom build go with the LRB. Why scrimp on the receiver? Honestly hough just buy a Chinese M14 and build on that. The chinese receivers will be the closest thing to a USGI receiver you will find, their barrels and triggers are nice too.

No guaranty on Springfield bare receivers.

I had three match rifles built around SA receivers that I got at Camp Perry. SA rents a building, sometimes sells receivers for a good price. Always a good price for installed match barrels.
