M1a Review:

***** 5 Stars

Amongst the jewels of any rifle

or gun collection, this is a rugged,

accurate, versatile rifle that can

 reach out and touch something

far, far away

The M1a was first produced in 1974 as a high quality, civilian version of the US military M14 rifle.  The M1a is regular contender at NRA High Power shooting matches and it accuracy is legendary.


The term "M1A" is a proprietary title for Springfield Armory's M14 pattern rifle, and was first used by the first owner of the Springfield Armory Inc.




The M1A is purely designed to be a semi-automatic rifle and cannot in any way be modified to become a fully automatic firearm.

The Loaded variants are available with either a walnut or synthetic stock and do not have the action glass bedded into the stock as do the National Match and Super Match models.

This rifle also includes special accuracy-enhancing features such as a custom match grade gas cylinder, custom match grade operating rod guide and weighs in at 10.8 pounds

The M1a Super Match is more customizable has additional features on some models such as a McMillan stock and a Douglas stainless steel barrel. This rifle is built for the individual who demands the very best and weighs in at 12.2 pounds.

M1A Scout Squad

The Scout Squad is an M1A for law enforcement users. It has an 18-inch barrel, a forward mounted sight base. The Scout Squad is designed to be easily fitted with red-dot optics, but still would need a cheek rest to get the proper sight picture. This variant is available with both a wood stock and synthetic stock options.
