    I have a couple fairly simple questions for some of you guys that keep up with this sort of thing. I am actually interested in a rifle so I was wondering about a few things. I would kind of like to have a "goal price" of what I need to expect if I go to buy one of these. I looked in quite a few places but couldn't find the right gun... Maybe it doesn't even exist... I don't know. I saw a $1200 stock for the EBR but uh... yeah... I could probably find a gun for barely more than that... maybe even less...

    I know the first question involves a M14 but I have no clue on the best places, average price, ammo... well pretty much have very limited knowledge of the platform in general I just really like the look of the gun and became seriously interested in it.

    What is the closest thing to a Mk 14 Mod 0 EBR I can find in semi auto? I really like the looks of this gun and I know the M14 platform is good but all I have been finding is guns with M16 stocks which I don't like...

    This just looks good: [​IMG]


    Then I came across the SR-47 which I can't seem to find much info on... do they still make them? Are they kind of like something that never really took off? I can't seem to find really current info on them at all. Did a civilian version ever exist?

    Couple Answers...

    The EBR will cost you about $3k...I'm sure water-man will chime in and give the details, and his thoughts...I think he hates them. :neener:

    The SR-47 was based upon the AR-47 IIRC...that's about all I know about it...there are uppers for AR-15s that shoot 7.62x39, but I have heard that the mags will not reliably feed more than about 5 rounds.

    EDIT to add: the EBR is basically just a M1A wrapped in a Sage stock, that is the only real EBR. I know of nothing that looks similar other than a few competing M14 stocks that cost just as much and IMO don't look as good (more bulky). That EBR will set you back a chunk of change, just for the looks, and they are heavy...about 16lbs with a scope.

    You can indeed get something like the SR-47.

    From MGI:

    Modular lower - http://www.mgimilitary.com/Lower_Receiver_Mult_Mag_Wells.htm

    QCB upper - http://www.mgimilitary.com/qcb.htm

    Cobb Manufacturing also offered, for a very short time, the MCR-100 before the company was purchased by Bushmaster. The Bushmaster BA-50 rifles are the old Cobb .50 BMG rifles. I believe the Magpul Masada / Bushmaster ACR killed off the Cobb MCR.

    I don't know how well any of them work, but the concept is out there.

    Stock M1As will run you about 1400 dollars and then you would probably spend twice that much to set it up like that rifle pictured.
