Which one would You buy, and why?

Another ignorant person here begging the goodwill of the community.

I've saved forever and have enough for 1 M14. My Garand said it needed company, so who am I to argue?

My options are thus:

LRB Arms $2800.00 or so for their low end.

http://m14forum.com/px/303554-bula-defense-m14.html From pdcrig $2150.00

SAI M1A all USGI 1995 TRW Barrel from Kurtc $2250.00

http://m14forum.com/px/308194-all-winchester-m1a.html From tnw50cal $2050.00

I have read so much and done so much research I feel like I'm taking a test tomorrow and suddenly can't remember anything at all.

I know any/all of them may sell the minute I press Submit but I have to try. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by asking.

Thank you.

+1 for Bula, it will be new. Use the search button on this forum. I'm fixing to buy my second one and I'm going with Bula reviever,bolt and barrel. I have a SAI loaded model and have had zero problems with it. This will be my last firearm purchase/build. Then I'm stacking ammo and mags.

Thanks from Itsadryheat

I'd probably opt for the All Winchester M1A. The price is the primary reason, plus its mostly all Winchester, and an early handguard type.

Believe me when I type this that I've searched this forum many different ways to try and figure this out. Since I'm asking about 3 specific rifles, it makes it a lot harder to decide over just a specific brand.

I guess it depends upon what you want to use it for such as in match competition shooting or just range shooting. I see you didn't mention the Springfield National Match which will run you several hundred bucks less or better compared to your listed selections. You can use that savings to purchase ammo or a range bag or additional mags.

Thanks from ConRich

You need to decide what the firearm will be used for. Precision, Service or blasting.

Do you like old school or modern? Is a lifetime warranty important? Iron sights or optics? What type of ammo do you plan on using?

That all-Winchester SAI is gorgeous. If it is unfired, I would have to keep it that way.

Springfield armory M21 tactical with krieger barrel. It's not on your list but for a few dollars more than the LRB it's one accurate rig.

Rifle will be used for range shooting, but also hunting, so it needs to shoot to 200-300 yards accurately. I like the old school the best. I grew up in an environment with WWII and Korean war all around. I will shoot the 168grain when it's important and the 147 grain stuff when it's not. Next after this rifle will be a reloading setup to reload so I can save money. (Hahaha. I meant shoot more).

Unfortunately the LRB is at the very top of what I can afford at the moment.

Have to agree you can get a Bula later and you will save for another trust me. I finally got my all Winchester built on the GWLA TFL receiver from our group buy last year. Just absolutely beautiful if I say so myself.
