I want to get something relatively inexpensive so I can afford to do some custumization. I've narrowed it down to two (but suggestions are welcome) the Springfield GI or STI Spartan if you could only have one (which this will probably be my only one) which would be your choice?
Both can be customized later on down the road. But, for the time being, you'll be happier with the Spartan over the GI or the Mil-Spec. WAY better sights and better features.

Spartan, hands down. No mods needed.

Since you're asking for our opinion, I would lean towards a Spartan.
