Default Dumb question

Like the title says. Are there kits for building a m14/m1a? I'd love to have one but cant afford one outright. I would like to be able to buy it in pieces and assemble it if possible. If possible, how difficult would it be? Thx in advance for any responses/suggestions.

Yes its possible but they cost almost as much as a complete m1a. Unless you are a class III ffl/manufacturer you can't own or build a m14. As to how hard it is-its actually pretty easy. Might require some wood working skills depending on your stock

I dont mind if it cost the same, just as long as I'm not paying it all at once. Im sorry, I wasnt clear. I meant a semi m14 (if there is such a thing). I dont know much about them but I want one and I want to learn. Where would be a good site for the parts?

Springfield arms is where I get mine. The kits are all one package. A semi m14 IS a m1a.

Ok ty. I was looking at Smith Enterprises Inc. They sell individual parts which would help with expense. I guess I need a list of every part I would need to build an m1a from the ground up. I cant afford to buy one of the kits all at once either.

Start a bank account and put in $20 or whatever a week or month or pay period. If it is in the bank you wont be so tempted to tap it. You could even make an auto deposit. Hang a picture on your fridge and do a countdown. Maybe pick up an accessory on the side every so often.

It was not a dumb question. The only dumb questions are the ones we don't ask.
