UPS delivered M1A rifle with a cracked hand guard assembly, so either the box slammed into something very hard or was dropped by UPS personnel after it left Buds, and the force hit the muzzle brake first then transferred up to the receiver and cracked the weakest part - the hand guard assembly.
Contacted Buds customer service, and they confirmed UPS received the package for delivery to the FFL that I use and trust.
End of shipping box where the flash hider is located was torn open upon receipt of rifle.
Contacted Springfield Armory and they are sending a new hand guard assembly part# 779286.
I thought about refusing the weapon transfer, and could have it sent back, but everything else looked/worked good, smooth and solid at the FFL dealer.

Rifle shoots like a charm. Took from the box straight to the range. 100 yards with iron sights had 5 inch groups. Shoots better than me. Had two slam fires which worry me but I'll look into it. Recoil isn't even noticeable due to the built in recoil pad. I am now a fan of Springfield. An AR cant come close to this.
