SPRINGFIELD M1A FOR SALE
SPRINGFIELD M1A FOR SALE.
Springfield Armory Inc., based in Geneseo, Ill., offers a version of its tried and true M1A chambered for 6.5 mm Creedmoor. The M1A is a semi-automatic commercial version of the M14 service rifle originally chambered for 7.62×51 mm NATO. This new version of the M1A, a part of the “Loaded” grade of rifles, has a few updates that separate it from the typical features that would be found on a mil-spec M1A, while remaining mostly the same in other regards.
The M1A is a popular gas-operated, semi-automatic rifle platform typically chambered for .308 Win. known for its accuracy potential at extended range and is still employed as a match rifle. A majority of the metal components of the M1A Loaded line remains largely unchanged from the standard M1A, except for the barrel and flash hider. The receiver group of the M1A has the classic traits of the M1 Garand, the rifle from which the M14 was partially developed.
The M1A Loaded line is available with either a standard style wood stock or an Archangel stock, as is the case here. The Archangel stock features adjustable length of pull and comb height adjustments to better fit the user and specific optic used. Other features of the Archangel stock include a near-vertical pistol grip, quick-detachable sling mount holes, a Picatinny rail segment on the bottom of the fore-end and finger grooves molded into the sides of the for-end.
The classic. The ultimate icon. The legendary hero. Descended from the M14 rifle, the M1A™ is a civilian-legal semi-auto version of that revered U.S. Military rifle that dominates the competition fields — and the heart of America.
From 1959 to 1970, the M14 served with distinction as the standard issue rifle of the United States military after the revered M1 Garand. When Springfield Armory® made the civilian-legal variant in 1974, shooters across the land rejoiced.
The windage and elevation adjustable rear sight makes zeroing the rifle a pleasure, while the two-stage military trigger, detachable box magazine, op-rod, and roller cam bolt provide functional ease of operation and faithful reliability.
Well-suited for a day at the range, competition or hanging on your wall in front of an American flag, the Standard M1A™ is for the patriot looking to fill a special place in their collection. All the design features that the Armed Services found essential for a battle rifle give the civilian-legal Standard M1A™ a lineage worth honoring.
The G.I.-standard 22″ 1:11″-twist carbon steel barrel on the M1A™ Standard Issue rifle wrings all available performance out of those heavy 7.62x51mm rounds.
The M1A™ Standard Issue rifle is available with either a traditional walnut stock or a modern composite variant.
The tuned two-stage National Match trigger on the M1A™ Standard Issue rifle has dominated shooting competitions for decades.
