    Now that I have a revolver, I want to get a rifle, other than a .22, and I was thinking about building up an M14. Anyone have any good links or resources?:dunno:

    Buying one is cheaper than building one.

    Yep, only way you might save money building is if you want an uber tactical long range setup.

    Probably nothing to significant. M1A/M14 parts just aren't cheap like AK or AR stuff. the SOPMOD DMR stock by itself is about $1200 w/ irons and bipod on it.

    Looks like you would do better to buy one rather than building one.

    Buy one, then if you want to go DMR, put a McMillan M2A stock on it and a decent scope. Maybe add a bipod. Boom, DMR.

    At least, USMC DMR.

    How's this setup? (from http://www.templarridge.com/)

    [​IMG]
    • Armscorp Receiver
    • McMillan M2A stock
    • Barrel Krieger M14 Heavy Match 1 in 10
    • Smith Enterprises D/C Vortex Flash Hider
    • Smith Enterprises Gas Cyl Ft Site base
    • Smith Enterprises Picatinny Mount
    • Leupold Mark IV 4.5-14x40mm PR Long Range Mil-Dot
    • Leupold Mark IV 30mm Aluminum Med Matte Scope Rings
    • Harris Bipod 9”-13” (Leg Notch)
    Are these all of the parts you need for the DMR? Are they decent parts?
