Wood, especially walnut, always has soul. Each one has the M25 mod.

OP, you never stated where you are from, but, here in CA ARs are pretty much limited to 10 rd mags. With a bullet button.
M14/M1A style rifles are not. They can be used with 20 rd, and larger mags, as long as they were legally obtained.

All my M14s have the evil features and spare parts to last forever.

20 round mags
bayonet lug
flash suppressor

And built using only new USGI parts, I don't have any cast parts! I didn't buy an M1A because of the drop in quality, though I may buy an older one. What I got was high quality, high dollar but that was to be expected as this platform is expensive to begin with.

I think your best bet would be to go with an older Springfield when they used USGI parts, or if you can afford it collect pristine USGI parts and have a reputable armor build it for you. You will have something special.

You might give a good look at the JRAs. They are affiliated with Bula Forgings, who makes many replacement parts for the M14s in US Military service. Bula forges their receivers and bolts already.

Yes, and Smith Enterprise also makes parts for M14s in US Military service.

The M14/M1A world is better because of the efforts of these companies.

H20Man you are exactly right, my SEI receivers are fantastic both in fit and finish. They are miles above the new SAI offerings. LRB and JRA are also excellent choices. I fear what it really comes down to is money for most people, so SAI is those folks only option.

I think saving your money a little longer and getting a much better rifle is the better option.

Spending less money for the same thing is common sense. Either way, its an antiquated service rifle clone or identity crisis wrapped in AR15 rails and muzzle brakes.

Even with cutbacks our military is still one of the best equipped in the world. Why then bring back an antiquated system as the M14? Which I might add has been serving with distinction in the middle east.

As for spending less, you are also getting less. Much less!
