Seems to me like 1911s and .308 go together like peanutbutter and jelly, so I've decided to buy one. My question is which one.
I want ideas on action type bar length, maker, etc.
Let me know what you guys like.
Depend what you want to do. I prefer a bolt action, 24-26" heavy barrelled Remington 700. 4.5-14 Leupold tactical scope. If your looking for maximum accuracy get a bolt action. Fire power, get a semi. I'm very narrow minded, 1911's and Remington 700, .308's. Although if I was to get a semi auto it would be a Springfield M1A.
If you want a military-style semiauto, go with a FAL. If you have beaucoup dollars, get an original Belgian, if you want to chop a grand off that, get a new DSA.
If you are on a budget, get one of the IAI all-Imbel guns for about $750.
Mags are under $10 each, spare parts and accessories are plentiful. The gun is incredibly simple to field strip and maintain, very reliable and very ergonomic and fun to shoot.
The only bad thing about the FAL is its rear sight isn't as good as the M1A's. Never bothered me, but if it bothers you you can easily mount a red dot sight or tactical scope on one of the many scope mounts available for the gun.
I also have an M1A and it is a nice gun, but mags are very expensive and the gun is very complicated to disassemble.
Also have had a HK91 since 94, and while it is incredible reliable and durable, it is not as naturally balanced as the other two guns and has a crappy trigger unless you invest in a PSG1 trigger pack. It is also very very expensive if you get an original HK. The only clone gun I would look at is the CETME that AIM Surplus is selling for $500. They also have mags for $18 right now. Not a GREAT gun, but a great buy for that money.

Rifles are even more mission specific than pistols as the range of engagement can be much greater. .308 is a good chambering,and is available in any kind of platform from cqb to sniper/tactical outfits.A "scout rifle" type of arangement is very versatile and can be had commercially in bolt action or semi-auto configuration.People have a tendency to buy long heavy barrels beause they "need" them and in the process end up with a heavy ungainly unit which hampers mobility,when in actuality a 20" tube will provide adequate ballistics inside of 600yds and is much handier to use.As is the case with most guns picking a caliber/chambering is the easy part.....choosing the platform from which to launch it is another story all together.
It all depends on what you want to do. I wanted a .308 that would be as accurate as possible while keeping the costs down. I went with a Remington LTR that I picked up for around $750. I put on a Leupold Mark IV that I got for $450 and I was ready to go. I have sub-MOA at 300 yards.
The VS and the PSS are mechanicaly identical.PSS is parkerized,VS is beadblasted and blued.Both use HS Precision stocks of slightly different designs(you should try both before buying) and are excellent quality.Triggers on all 700's are adjustable(this should be done by a qualified individual).VS=$550 +/- PSS=$750 +/-.Want to know more of these rigs spend some time at www.snipercountry.com look in the archives and you will find out more than you want to know.
