I\'ve wanted an M1A for years, and finally splurged on one. I\'ve never been a fan of AR\'s. I love walnut stocks but the fiberglass was a lot cheaper and half a pound lighter. It does seem to have a bit of flex in the fore-end, though. Other than that the fit to the barrel and receiver is good and I appreciate the reduced weight. The rifle handles very well-it\'s easy to shoot kneeling or offhand. The gas piston action and muzzle brake make the recoil very manageable for a .308. I\'m still trying to decide what I want for an optic. I considered a Burris Fastfire III on a stripper guide mount, but I may go with the more traditional Scout scope on the mounting rail so I can have some magnification. But until I decide, the built-in sights are easy to zero and quick to align on target. It seems quite accurate, though I haven\'t shot it from a bench or prone yet so I can\'t say exactly how accurate. I have had several failures to chamber-the cartridge gets stuck halfway into the chamber at an angle and the bolt can\'t close fully. Each time I removed the offending cartdrige, put it back in the magazine, and it chambered fine the second time. I\'m hoping it\'s a break-in issue; if not I\'ll be contacting Springfield. Overall I love this rifle!

I picked up my M1A earlier today and was extremely happy with my purchase. Buds made it an easy and very pleasant experience; using their 90-day layaway program was a perfect option for me and they communicated updates every step of the way. The rifle was shipped quickly and was in excellent condition when I picked it up. The magazine that came with it had some slight dirt/debris on the carrier, but other than that everything was clean, greased, and shiny new. Overall, a wonderful experience with Buds and a beautiful new rifle for the collection!

I love my M1A Scout. Sights were a bit low but still an accurate rifle. My transaction with Buds went very smoothly. Arrived in a few days in excellent condition. I just love this gun more than an AR15. I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger on this purchase.

I received this rifle 4 days after ordering it. Great and fast service from buds as always. I have put about 100 rounds through this rifle so far and it is fantastic. Right out of the box the sights were dead on accurate. The trigger pull feels nice and responsive. I love this rifle and can recommend it enough

Super service from Bud's. I received the M1A Scout at my FFL less than a week after ordering it. It arrived with no problems and was exactly what I was expecting. It functions flawlessly and groups shots well. Very happy with the gun and another great experience with Bud's Gun Shop.
