Wow, what an amazing piece of machinery. Beautiful, accurate, and I hope reliable. I brought it home, cleaned it and fired 20 rounds through it. No malfunctions of any kind so far. I noticed it seems to kick harder than my Garand,but it feels lighter, so that makes sense. There\'s just something about these wood and steel guns. I love my ARs but there\'s no comparison for me. The gun came in a really nice padded soft case but with only one ten round mag. Ordering online from Buds was easy. If you\'re on the fence about this gun, buy it, you\'ll love it. They are not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Sorry in advance to all of the M1A lovers out there, BUT I have to complain about an issue with the design. Why in the F%$# would they use that stupid handguard clip on a flimsy wood, plastic or fiberglass handguard? The thing is not only made from the strongest spring steel ever known to man, but also has no means of easily removing the handguard without scratching the crap out of the handguard or the clip. Yes, you can buy a tool to remove the clip from the handguard itself, but nothing that I have found to make it easy to remove just the handguard from the gun. Correct me if I am wrong. Is there something out there? Other than that, I do like the gun so far. Is it overpriced? Yes,I think so. The nostalgia of the gun is probably why it is priced that high. There are guns out there in the same price range that are just as accurate and dont have a stupid handguard clip to deal with when you want to clean the gun. Buds did an excellent job, as usual, and I received it in a short time. There were some scratches on the stock that I didnt notice when I picked it up, but that is my fault. I will refinish the stock someday anyway.

The entire process is really streamlined. There was never a delay or "hitch" from product selection to delivery at the gun dealer. The gun was received in perfect condition. I was able to track the gun from the time it left Bud's until arrival at the local gun dealer.

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!
