That is a good question. I don't have alot of experience with alot of different types or caliber of rifles. For me I have to look at what I can get for the best price. I might not be able to get the top of the line rifles or pistols, yet. But if I find a well made piece of equipment that will do approx. the same I will go with it. Now when I become wealthy-never happen-I might get to enjoy some of those finer or maybe just more expensive guns. I would love to have a M1A or Military Garand. Maybe just because it was what my Dad used in the war.
