    I don't see that listed as one of their guns? Do you mean you want an M1A in an EBR stock? Or do you mean you want an MK14 Mod 0 clone?

    I have a MK14 Mod 0 clone and it is a great gun.

    Pro:
    Accurate
    Fun
    Reliable
    Compact
    Easy to mount optics and accessories too

    Con:
    Heavy
    You have to do a major take down to get the OP rod out for detailed cleaning
    The grip plate is kinda rough on the hand, wear at least a glove on your shooting hand
    Price

    They look kinda cool, but they are heavy and expensive. Did I mention they are expensive?
