    I currently own a Glock 30 but want to add to my one-gun collection. I was considering an AR-15 from either Wilson or Bushmaster. I'm a veteran and am very familiar with this weapon. I've also always been interested in the M1. I've come to the conclusion that the M1A1 is a much better riffle than the AR-15 and am going to buy a Springfield Armory Super Match the end of the month unless I'm convinced otherwise. Opinions/experiences on this appreciated.

    A better gun? There are quite a few ways to look at it. Better cause it has a bigger bullet- yes

    It is also heavy and more expensive to feed.

    I do love my M1A though.

    I guess for a plinking mess around varmint gun I would have to grab my AR15.

    For a serious punch for a battle rifle or just killing something DEAD then I would grab my M1A


    Don't forget the other manufactures out there. Bushmaster makes a fine weapon but the AR in AR15 stands for Armalite Rifle.

    Hard choice to make.

    In 49 states ignorance is a crime. In the other one it is bliss.

    what about a AR15 in .308?

    Armalite makes one, called the AR10. Have the best of both


    you can get an AR10 in Black, Green or Camo.
