I went with the Springfield. LRB and others were not out at the time I purchased. Springfield has a lifetime warranty which helps.
Anyway, I got the loaded with the stainless barrel. Since, I've added the Smith Ent. mount, Nikon Monarch Gold 2.5 - 10 x 30mm scope sitting in Smith Ent. rings. I also had them do a match trigger job.
