I certainly like my Rock River Arms LAR-08 308 16" Bbl. AR. It is a fine rifle and I have even used it deer hunting in the past. It also is scoped and is a 1 MOA Rifle at 100 yards. Nothing at all wrong with it. However I have 2 Springfield M1-A rifles. One is a M1-A National Match, scoped and the other is the Loaded Model with Iron Sights. As much as I like my RRA AR 308 if I had to make a choice of only one rifle it would be the M1-A.
I carried one in the Army before I was issued the AR and then I shot two M-14 Match Rifles while on an Army Rifle Team. Just love the M-14/M1-A weapon and as stated if I had to chose one it would be the M1-A even though I like the RRA 308 AR very well. I have shot the scoped M1-A at 1000 yards several times and it did a respectable job. Not the most accurate rifle at that distance but still did as well as expected. So if you are only choosing one weapon I would say the M1-A in the NM or the Loaded Model!
Here is the M1-A NM and the Rock River Arms LAR-08.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
