Default what're the benefits of each rifle... gotta pick one

I really wonder about what the plusses and minuses are on each rifle. Browning Hog Stalker vs M1A

I'm going to buy one. I love my browning BAR
I did enjoy shooting the M21 in the Army...

well the browning has a better barrel. but the stock is clunkier

the m1 has cheaper magazines and is more ammo sensitive but a better stock.

the browning will be better for optics but worse if you want iron sights

the m1 is terrible for mounting optics

the m1 will be better for handling and easier to get into blinds if your a hunter.


personally i wouldnt go with either.

That browning is an assault rifle. You can tell by the pistol grip.

The M1A will need endless tinkering, and once you get it accurized, it won't stay that way forever. It's great for tinkerers and military buffs, but that's about all it is good for.

I'd take the Browning over two of the M1A's. - I've had both. The Browning is a much more serious weapon, much more capable and much better designed.

The FNAR is similar to the Browning but more "plain Jane.

It has rails for optics and accessories and 5,10 and 20 round magazines. Full pistol grip, and the legendary FNH quality

Would love to shoot Browning and FNH -in 308 side by side. The FNH comes w a MOA guarantee - not sure about Browning.

So if you live in California then anything with a pistol grip requires a bullet button on it.

That makes anything without a pistol grip more versatile.

A bolt action mountain rifle would more appropriate for hunting then, since you spot and stalk.

You only need one carbine in your arsenal.

You cannot carry two at once if SHTF.
