    Joining the family...

    I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have enough to buy something new but its picking a rifle thats got me stumped.

    I could either go with a new C93 seeing as all the reports have been great on them. Or pick up a Polytech M1A and have a tack-driver.

    Yet part of me is seeking to join the good o'l ranks of the C.O.G.S with the purchase of a Limited Edition or St. Albans marked CETME.

    So if you guys had to pick one of the 3, which one? I'm leaning towards the CETME right now but any info/opinions would be greatly appreciated. A lot of you here have far greater firearms experience and knowledge than I do and I'm gladly learning from vets and builders alike on here.

    It's hard to say, cause I don't know what you got already...
    Me, I'm looking at something cheaper to shoot, either a M&P-15 .22 or a LAR-9

    C93, awsome shooting rifle and less than half of a real HK. AIM has them for about $750ish if I remember correctly.

    I would go with the Polytech M1A, but you need to get what best suits your needs/desire.

    Having two of the rifles listed on the list, a Poly M1A and two CETMES, I think I vote for the C93. But as stated above we dont know what else you have that impacts that decision. Heck more 9mm type of carbines or even a cool 22 as Wildbill said above are always a good value too.
    Still building bigger and better bombs for your brighter tommrows(aw heck and takeing them apart and demilling them for that tommrow too)

    1st choice C93 for the following reasons....

    Seemingly good quality
    Availability and price of ammo
    Availability and price of magazines
    Price of gun
    Reasonable accuracy

    #2 choice would be the M1A

    Bullet proof workhorse
    Dependability
    Accurate
    Good availiblity of spare mags
    Fair price for what it is

    Like Wild Bill said it depends. What are you planning to do in this hobby? are you just going to get a few firarms? Or are you eventually going to get all of these.

    If you are just going to get a few I'd say you should have at least one CETME. If some day you will have them all the CETME can wait, get the polytech. No more of those are coming in.
