Default Prices?

Aside from the forum disclaimer "This forum is for the Part Kits that CMP once sold.", why are M14 prices so high? Is it because of the fairly limited range of use ('59 to '7x)? I've become interested in finding one, and after looking, I'm confused by the cost. Decent "builds" seem to be ~ $3k, or the price of a couple Garands or carbines...

TIA!

Russ

You might want to be more specific on what type of M1A/M14 you are looking for. All USGI, Commercial Grade SAI or a smaller niche builder? National Match, Standard Grade, Super National Match, etc... Chrome lined barrel, USGI profile, heavy match, etc....

There are many good quality new and used rifles below the price you are quoting. Opinions differ, so you could also check over at the M14 Forum to see what is available.

They are expensive, but can be had for under $1000. I once bought a used Springfield Armory, Inc. with complete USGI parts for $900. Patience and lots of looking are key; hang in there and you will find one for a lower price.

I was hoping to come up with a decent GI-issue, not sure they're even available as they may have been select-fire (showing my ignorance, I don't even know that). I just like wood furniture, don't want another black rifle...

The M14 Forum is easy to join. There are a lot of folks here who are members there as well.

True M14's, NFA style, full auto capable, IIRC, run well north of $20,000.00 or more and require ATF approval/licensing.

That being said, you can find, I think, what you are looking for in an M1A, without the full auto capability, very reasonably priced. Some rifles have no USGI parts, some have a mixture of both.

Springfield Armory, Inc. is probably one of the biggest civilian market manufacturer's today, but there are other good smaller manufacturer's as well. Finding a M1A that looks like a M14 is not difficult or pricey at all. Google is your friend here.

I agree with you, wood furniture goes a long way. But, the M1A's can be just as addicting as M1 Garands, fair warning.

I picked up an unissued USGI stock with metal from Numrich (no P stamp) for under $50. Has the select fire cutout. Its going to replace the camo painted Polytech stock on mine. Furniture's the easy part.

I would like to know where to get new M14 clone, from any maker, with USGI parts for $900.00.
Any basic Standard GI profile cloned M14 will be around $1,200 - $1,400.
They go up from there.
Unless some person get divorced and needs to let one go due to bills, medical or otherwise, less than a G will be hard to find.
