So I've been offered a Springfield armory M1 Garand for $600. The wood is in Excellent to near perfect condition, and the metal has little wear (90-95%). It has apparently been re-barreled, and fires fine.It is from around 1947 (according to the serial number) and was never issued nor seen combat.

I have also been offered a M14 (M1a). I know no details so far, other than it fires and comes with extra magazines. I will be looking at it this week. He wants $800 for it.

My question is, which seems like a better buy? My heart is torn. What do you guys think would be the smarter purchase?

Um, a life time warranty? I didn't know that. Thanks for your info! I'll have your post up when i'm checking out the rifle.

I can't buy both, just can't afford it. That's why i'm so torn. However my uncle will buy the M1 if I buy the M14, so I can always shoot it I guess.
