Springfield M1A STD 308 SYN BL
[MA9106]
$1,357.00
by Michael M Date Added: Sunday 02 December, 2012
Pretty good rifle. Accurate, reliable, no problems. Only lasting complaint is that the top front stock is a little flimsy. It sits securely but when I push on it, it will flex inward. Haven't tried any cheap steel ammo. Cheap brass from PPU works fine. Stripper clip guide is a PAIN to remove, the pin that holds it in is a hollow C shape, if you use a punch that is too small it will just go inside the pin and make it expand. Most people recommend a 3/32 punch to remove it, but I found a 5/64 works MUCH better. I would recommend Springfield put in a solid pin to avoid problems, such as tools getting stuck inside the hollow C-shaped pin and breaking off (as I had happen and others I've read have had happen). I also put in a ProMag see-thru rail that didn't require any drilling and used the stripper clip guide and pre-drilled hole in the receiver to secure it. Leupold Scope went on the rail. I also replaced the front sling swivel with a Sadlak QD Post Assembly (built for the M1A/M14) which also required no drilling as it used the factory holes from the sling swivel. Rifle is much prettier now!
