    I'd go HK91 or M14 from LRB.

    Springfield's M1As get a lot of Errornet time but if you want quality and something that will last (most M1As are not shot a lot)LRB=>http://www.lrbarms.com/

    An assault rifle is very expensive, my friends G91 (or is it 93?)
    cost around 20,000.
    You could save a bundle by getting a regular semi auto in .308 caliber.

    I would LOVE a .308 assault rifle as well, but they are too rare and expensive. I can't even take part in this conversation, being a member of the American public I have almost no access to assault rifles.

    But BTW my semi-auto M1A rifle shoots GREAT.

    Call them what you want, even if they don't have a full auto function. I call my semi auto AK an assault rifle because that's what it's based off of. And when I get a CETME, I'm going to call it a battle rifle. :D

    For Reliability, durability and accuracy I'd choose my M1A over my AR. Also has better penetration and ability to reach out further.

    In .308 caliber would be my Springfield M1A though the
    M1A is not chambered in .308 but a 7.61X51.

    I don't know what the "best quality 308 assault" rifle would be, especially since the only thing I have assaulted is paper and steel;) ,but I will throw in my 2 cents.

    If I were to use iron sights then I would choose a M1A with some match grade features. I wanted a rifle that looked and felt right with a scope so I purchased the DPMS LR-308 and have been very happy with it. It only has a little over 100 rounds through it but has been 100% reliable and very accurate.

    Arguing Semantics

    OK everyone who wants to get all puffy about terms, an Assault Rifle is defined as a selective fire rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine. Hence the Author of this thread was not wrong in using the term ASSAULT RIFLE. Being fully automatic is not a requirement to be labeled as such. Not to mention you knew what he was talking about no need to be a jerk about it. However .308 cal and larger aren't generally considered intermediate rounds, hence they are generally referred to as Battle Rifles. That was just a little FYI. I know what the author meant and I reccomend if you are only planning on buying one I would go with the Sprinfeild M1A mostly because it is an an American firearm that has all around great accuracy and reliability. The U.S. military does not use sub par weaponry. That being said, I collect assault rifles and have been interested in branching into Battle Rifles and I want them all (M1A, HK91, FAL, AR10, etc), but that's just me.

    More accurate than an AK. Just as reliable as an AK. Tough as nails.

    do we really need to resurrect a 3 yr old thread to argue about the definition of "assault" again?
