Looking to order a "standard" which would you choose?
Yep, me too!You could also get to 50 posts and get the fulton lugged rifle in a McMillan stock for sale for 2,500. That would be what I would do, at least...
Without a doubt.I'm sure there are as many opinion as there are posters.
We have to remember the M14 is a government project... They are the guys that produced the $700 toilet seat and spent millions designing a pen to write in space when the Russians used a pencil. I remember taking M14s out of the locker on a DDG and some were really nice and a couple were dogs and all were built to the same spec and came from the same contractor and maintained by the same crew.Without a doubt.
I own multiples of both, each built from a barreled action with head-spaced bolt. The Fulton's went together like legos; the Bula's... well, took a bit of tweaking, but they all work now.
My next rifle build will probably be a Fulton. But that's just me.
