So as some of you know, I have a stable of .223 rifles. I have had a gaggle of 7.62x39mm rifles. I've never had. A 308 semi auto. I don't really enjoy the thought of a thordsen stocked ar10. I have a friend with one, and it balances about as well as a democratic lead government's budget. So any of you have an m1a? I was looking at an 18" model to split the barrel length difference.
