Springfield M1A STD 308 SYN BL
by christian c Date Added: Monday 21 May, 2012
I received my M1A six days after I ordered it, and it was in perfect condition. I got the polymer black stock on the standard barrel/receiver model. It is light and sharp looking. The price was excellent, and soon after I bought it the price went up, and then it showed out of stock. I hope Bud's gets more in so you can get one also. They do have plenty of different models in stock, but whatever you do, listen to the prior raters and purchase one while they are still available and at a reasonable price.

The M1A is surely the daddy of battle rifles. The Garand action is precise and solid, and it does not get any more reliable than this action. IMHO, before making your decision on which M1A model to choose, I would strongly consider a full length M1A over the Scout or SOCOM, as the .308 round is not designed as an "assault weapon" round, and a short barrel dramatically messes with the .308's accuracy. I realize that some military units have adopted the SOCOM style M1A's for some specific uses, but I personally think the SOCOM civilian model may be Springfield Armory's attempt at grabbing some customers in the M4 crowd. The M1A isn't designed for this use. Also, stay with the good ammo. Don't go cheap with laminated or lacquered casings. The casing finish on cheap casings can melt in the barrel, causing FTE's and jeopardizing the extractor. In the end, this is an investment. Treat is as such... Thanks again Bud's!
