I gotta go with the 1928.

It has a better finish, better sights and uses drums or stick mags.

But they both rock.

The M1A1, it's the one I was assigned.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Well, if you are John Dillinger.... the M1928

If you are Vic Morrow.... the M1A1

Better looking? 1928 hands down. The one we have (that I have shot numerous times) is a 21-28 overstamp Navy model. Beautiful firearm. American engineering at its best.
