No damned way the Garand shoulder breaker is going to be as accurate than the M1A/M14 platform without major work much less more accurate. I own a Garand and it shoots bigger groups than my SKS with even match grade surplus ammo.
Want a good fun gun, get a Saiga or Vepr chambered in 7.62 NATO. They're about half the price of the M1A and they make a ton of aftermarket stuff that will fit them including match grade triggers.

I am a Canadian (I only mention because of stricter gun laws) who already has a 30-06 and .270 pump hunting rifles. I want a s***s n giggles gun but one that would be also be good as my bug out rifle. I have come down to the decision of one the two in the title, but cannot narrow it down any further. Both are legal in Canada, and I'm unsure if the M1A is, but if anyone can give the pro's/con's of both (all three) as bugout/fun guns, that would be cool.
i recommend you to buy a Karabiner K98k rifle if you want something really good!
