Don't know anyone right off the top of my head.  You may have better luck looking for a Ruger Mini-14.  With an AR, you're probably looking at $1,000.  With a good Mini-14, you should be able get a decent one for around $500.  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Not to mention that most people with AR's are keeping them right now.  Mini-14's have been around long enough that you can just about always find some for sale, plus you can get all kinds of cool little after-market accessories for them.  O0

Try GunBroker and see what they've got.  :wink:

What BC said.
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

NO!!! Come to the black rifle side... Once you buy one, you'll never be able to satisfy your lust for more. ;D I had me a nice one, once upon a time. $1,000 for the rifle, $300 for the scope, $300 numerous other stuff... It was really quite accurate too. O0

Fear not Ks, the Mini-14 is the "original" black rifle (for civilian use). :wink:

An AR15 is going to cost you more money, but you get what you pay for.
With one lower receiver you can have a dedicated upper assembly for each individual shooting need. IE a 18" inch 9 twist upper for hunting coyotes, a 24" 7 twist upper for long range precision, and a 16.5" 7 twist upper for defending your home. Thats just in 223. Now add a 18 inch upper in 500 Beowulf, a 20" 204 upper,  A 20" upper in 6.5 grendle, and another one in 6.8 spc and anything mule deer and smaller better be very afraid. All these can be built with one (read the same) lower receiver. If the bug bites you and you end up with 2nd lower receiver  for  308 sized cases the combinations are to numerous to mention and there is nothing in North American that you can't hunt. I have even seen an AR chambered in 300 short magnum.
The possibilities are endless.
If it were my money AR all the way.
