Howdy, This is my first post on this forum so..... I would like to ask, who sells brand new Springfield M1A rifles with the best prices anywhere? I live in Florida but would be willing to buy from whom ever has it priced better than anyone, anywhere. Any help is greatly appreciated. This is the beauty I would like and will have soon enough: The Springfield SA9102 Super Match With Over Sized Walnut StockPosted Image

I am looking myself so I have Googled a lot of sites here is the one I'm looking at now, they all seem pretty close. I am looking at the M-1A Scout. I am going to a gun show this next week-end to see what they are bringing there http://www.gunsameri........AA9122.htm# Here is another manufacture and/or souce of the M-14 or M-1A1 http://fulton-armory........1-1-2.aspx I thought I wanted the bayonet lug and this company has it, also has the auto selector switch which of course is non-funtioning but not sure what kind of big deal that would be other than cool looking and it is a pretty exspensive option, again cool but for what? I do not know much trying to learn what's what myself, going to be intersting at the gun show coming up this week-end in Fort Wayne, IN http://www.memorialc........show-march   Again looking for the best price I can get too so I have been surfing the web to get educated before I go to the gun show and plan on bring an M1-A1 Springfield Scout home but I am kind of intriged with the Fulton-Armory version but Srpingfield M-14 is what I was issued in the US Army in 1965 so I am I guess kind of partial to Springfield Armory too!   Not sure I helped you any other than giving you some sources to look at. /wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-laugh.gif

Why is this rifle so damn pricey, in comparison to say a brand new Colt 6920? I just can't figure that one out. Posted Image

Not sure other than maybe the history and it's a semi-automatic version of a military issued weapon not a gun, I leaned that pretty qucilyly and early not say gun, this is my rifle this is my gun, this is for fighting and this is for fun! Evidently supply and demand plays a part in price and it must be pretty popular due to the history and a military issue and they think we will all pay it I guess. I was issued the M-14 in 1965 so no doubt it is special to me, shortly there after the M-16 was introduced but I elected and was given the choice to keep my M-14, it was like a part of me. I would like to find and purchase an M-14 but they are illegal to poccess, once a machine gun always a machine gun according to the feds.

Well, the machine gun part isn't a problem down here, as long as you get the tax stamp and pay the exorbitant price for the weapon, its yours. I still don't see the justification of the current prices on a reproduction, semi-automatic version of a 52 year old rifle. Posted Image

I hear ya brother, the only way to own a machine gun or even one that has been fully automatic in this area is have a Federal Fire Arms Liscense and thaaaaat ain't cheap for individual use.   Finding prices for the M1-A-1 Springfield is $1500.00 and up; is that about what your finding? Do you know anything about these;  Fulton Armory M14 Rack Rifle?

The best place I found has been http://www.budsgunshop.com.  They offer free shipping and cash discount prices with various ways of getting it.  I have found that they are cheaper than local, http://www.gunsamerica.com, http://www.cheaperthandirt.com, and others.  There have been occassions that gunsamerica had a comparable offer but once you put in the shipping and handling, buds has it hands down.  I have ordered several firearms from them and no complaints, in fact waiting on my SA M1A Scout to be delivered.  You also need a good FFL, I have found a good one about 30 miles away.  While there are some alot closer, my FFL has been in business for a long time and is not in it for the money.  I've seen plenty FFL's that charge an arm and a leg for a transfer, most aren't in business anymore.  If anyone else knows of a cheaper place, please advise.
