Love the rifle and the service from Bud\'s was top notch as always. So why only 4 stars? Because, and this may not be fair since I knew exactly what was included, Springfield Armory comes across as a little stingy. With a nearly $1400.00 basic rifle they really should include 3 magazines, not 1, and a basic cleaning kit and sling. (Colt does, and they\'re bankrupt or nearly so). It would cost them little, and would have made me, at least, feel so much better about the purchase. Instead, it left just a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. They did include an inexpensive but nice case. I like shooting this rifle. About 200 rds. so far. I had 2 malfunctions very early on - 1 FTF and 1 FTE, both with some leftover suspect Tula steelcase ammo. No other problems since nor with any other ammo. The trigger is excellent, very light and clean, much better than I\'d hoped, and miles better than any stock AR trigger I\'ve ever tried. To me accuracy, as best I can measure, is also very good. Sighting in was easy and for me took about 5 clicks left and 3 up. After that I could hold 5\"-6\" groups at 100 yards from a rest, about as good as I ever do with my eyes and open sights. I don\'t think it would change my results, but the front sight edges are slightly rounded could be a little sharper for a cleaner picture. Also, the front sight could be shifted right a few thousandths to allow re-centering of the rear sight. But the rear sight offset needed to sight this rifle is small and not enough to bother about. Sight adjustments (clicks) are reassuring, strong, positive and solid. The action to me seems smooth and tight to this amateur. Ejection is slightly forward and about 8\' with GI-spec ball ammo, the spent brass clears the action and isn\'t dinged, a nice plus. Metal finish is a dull black and looks to be very evenly done - it looks good, and if it\'s Parkerizing it\'ll help with rust resistance in my part of the world (deep south). The barrel / rifling look excellent. The chamber is ok but a little rough, I think a couple more passes in the chamber with the polisher would have helped. Roughness is visible, and enough to mark the brass but not enough to damage it - it\'s still fine for reloading. The stock is nice - really nice. It\'s heavily stained straight grained wood, I assume walnut as SA claims, it\'s very well made, finished, and fitted. I hesitated over ordering wood and I\'m really happy I did - very very pretty. Overall it\'s a keeper for sure. I look forward to shooting this rifle and I\'m glad I have it. Once again, Bud\'s is just a first class operation to deal with.

Received my Springfield Armory M1A this morning in excellent condition. I am very satisfied with Springfield Armory as they included a tactical carrying bag for the rifle. Can not wait till I get the chance to go shooting. Also very satisfied with Bud's for my overall order experience, many thanks.

We received this rifle in excellent condition! The M1A arrived fast in a well-made, large, black nylon case. If you are in search of a hard-hitting, top-shelf weapon, choose the M1A! What a beast!

I seldom leave reviews but this is just too cool to leave y'all in the dark. Picked up my standard walnut stocked M1A today and was blown away. This is my 5th M1A so I'm use to the beauty of this classic. What surprised me was that it came in a BLACK BALLISTIC NYLON TACTICAL CASE with a pocket inside for documents and a pocket outside for three 20-round magazines. Do all the MA9102 come in the case? Not sure but mine sure did. Bonus!

Mine showed up very well packed and in perfect condition. Everything looked very good and had a quality, well-built feel to it. I've got several hundred rounds (all brass) of various weights through mine now. 100% reliable with CMI and T57 mags as well as FMJ and soft point ammo.
