I would buy a Smith Enterprise Inc. receiver, I have three and they are outstanding. I stopped buying Springfield Armory after mine cracked. SA isn't as good as they once were and are not military spec.

Thanx. I am going to hold out for a forged receiver. I don't want a cast carbine receiver, nor will I take a cast M14 receiver. One can pick-up an SA on an auction site for less that $1400 and I have seen them sell for for $1200. These are NIB, or almost NIB. May be a considerable difference between the older and new production SA's, but I am not knowledgeable enough to know right now. I have SA 1911's and they are great guns, but of mid-90's construction.

I have feelers out for a trade against a SG 100% original carbine. Originals start around $1500 and then go up from there. I may wind-up selling the carbine and purchasing an M1A, but it's easier to just find a trade.

Warranty heads-up. For those shopping for an M1A/M14, there are plenty of used guns out there, both pre-ban and current production. I have ran across posts in threads on forums from prospective buyers with the notion they will receive the life-time warranty from SA. If you go read the warranty at the SA website, the lifetime warranty is extended to the ORIGINAL purchaser only. I realize it is often possible to talk a manufacturer into performing warranty work, but it would be wise to contact SA before one purchases a used SA M1A. I think the only way one is going to receive the guarantee of a life-time warranty is to purchase one NIB. If one wants to go with a forged receiver and internals, there are other choices out there competitively priced with the NIB SA that offer some degree of warranty.

You have missed out on months and months of the pleasure of shooting wood and steel.
There are great rifles out there and life is too short to miss out on this experience for a matter of a few bucks.
My advice: Pick a rifle and buy a rifle and move on.

Second, if you buy a quality product (those choices have been described to you so I won't repeat them) "life time warranties" are not a major concern. So don't let that have an impact on your decision of what to buy.

Now, with in a few days I hope that we will see pictures of your new purchase and hear of a range report

Go tiger!
