This is a cool thread, lots of great pics. If anyone is looking for an M1A, I am thinking of selling mine. Federal Ordinance (one of the old ones with all USGI parts). PM me if interested.
only interested in buying a M14 (M14SA, M25, etc) with a forged receiver, just a personal preference.
might also get a CMP M1 Garand Service Grade and convert to a 7.62x51MM barrel.
Man, I've been jonesing for an M1A for a long time. They're just so goddamn expensive and there are always a ton of other things I want to buy. I'll start saving up for one, get halfway there and see some other gun I can buy now.
Devil, if you can save up the money, I'd recommend getting an LRB receiver and a pats kit and sending it all to Ted Brown to put together for you. A friend of mine took this same advice from me a few months back and is ecstatic.
