preventec47 0 Posted December 22, 2006 Report Share Posted December 22, 2006 I've spent the last 3 or 4 hours reading past posts and I really love this board. I fell in love with a SAIGA other day at LGS which has really upset my plans to hand select a field -rade M1 Garand for $475 from over a hundred to choose from in the first week of Jan. I'd like a removable clip but dont ever think I will need more than 6 or 8 rounds.... I will do some occasional deer hunting and plinking but I really want to own a rifle that has character and will hold its value, be reliable, and always be able to get repair parts. I dont thing there is much difference between ballistics of 30-06 and 308 so that is not really a big deal to me. What I am most worried about is me spending a bunch of money on extras and add ons for the SAIGA and wind up having more money tied up than I would have the M1-Garand Strangely, my other option was to buy a cheap SKS for $119 at LGS and shoot 762x39 . Of course SAIGA has that covered nicely also for about double the money. What ever I get I will be adding a 1.5 x 5 power scope to it as those are my favorites. This will probably be the only centerfire I will ever own as I shoot a lot of field target competition in air rifle and 22 LR. I only mention these things as I dont aspire to playing rambo commando with huge clips but I do think a folding stock for practical compact storage is neat as hell. I might just waste my whole day on this site ! thanks again for all the great info and comments. Scott Quote Link to post Share on other sites
