    Looks like I'm going to spend $1000 either way.. WHich one to buy ?

    AR's benefit is its easy to transport and its cheaper to shoot.

    1919 is kinda rare and unique but expensive to shoot and heavy to move

    One smiley describes this thread:

    :ugh:

    ar15 is a piece of shit compared to the 1919. 1919 in 8mm is much cheaper to shoot and a TON more fun.

    again

    :ugh:

    You did the 8mm conversion?

    I was looking at that but didnt see long term supply of 8mm as stable as .308

    I think theres a 7.62x54 conversion coming out which would be cool.

    I would go with the 1919, seems like that would be the better investment since no more parts kits are allowed to be imported and it's a lot more fun to shoot.

    Buy a lot now and never have to worry about it again. It's so cheap right now so you might as well.

    True. I havn't been into guns for 10 years but at the rate it's going this past few years I can see spending $8000 for 10 years.
