For personal collection-thanks!
the M14 will set you back about 15K, but it'll be a blast
Got them both now-put away in my safe-traded my 1941 Indian scout for them-your right they are some fine fire arms!!!
can't go wrong w/30-30 I have winchester 30-30 I use 170 grain w/no scope
does cost $ .Friend has marlin 30-30 less $ But I feel not as accurate but still a good gun I can't complain awesome brush guns.
Is the 30-30 your looking for a lever action? If so, keep in mind that Winchester ejects out the top and Marlin out the right side of the receiver. This matters when considering the use of a scope.
An M-14 at 15K? I read that as $15,000. I know nothing about the price of a select-fire M-14, but I do know that a nice Springfield Armory M1A1 (semi-auto M-14) can be had for $1500+.
I believe that any government M-14's (I assume the Select Fire Keys as well)have gone to the SWA theater.
Man I love those M-14's. The best dam battle rifle ever made in my opinion. I've got the older Ruger Mini-14 but would love to have the real McCoy. Oboma-nomics has everyone cod blocked on buying goodies like an M-14.
