    Feel free to laugh at me if this is a newbie question, but what is the civilian equivelant of the M14 7.62 rifle that we can purchase, and how much does it usually cost?

    Thanks! (still deciding between an AR15 and M14, purpose would be occasional target shooting and self defense)

    $1000+ for a basic model, add over a thousand more to get it customized and tweaked to your heart's content.

    Springfield is not the only maker. There's Fulton Armory and LRB arms for starters. Plus more than a few who can build custom.

    Although they are no longer made, wasn't the Winchester Model 100 basically an M14 action in a sporter rifle?

    Not as far as I can tell

    I would love to get one, but at 1200+ dollars:( I thought my Armalite was expensive at 1000 dollars.

    I've heard that the last couple years of M1As have had some big quality issues - is this true?

    The quality issues are more imaginary than real. The Springfield investment casting is more than adequate. You can always buy and install milspec bolts and op rods if you are worried. Norinco M-14's have soft bolts, other than that they are usually fine. And from what I understand LRB M-14's are full milspec.

    I would love a Springfield Arms M1A loaded rifle...but everything about them screams $$$$$$ cost...the rifle costs too much, and the ammo is pretty damn expensive too.
    Looks like I will be sticking with my shotgun...fun, cheap, deadly. :evil:
