Springfield Armory M1A

Springfield’s M1A traces its roots to the M14, adopted by the U.S. military in the late 1950s. That legacy of distinguished service continues today. Cabela’s offers three modern versions of the venerable M1A that blend all the fine attributes of this firearm’s past with the latest technology.


M1A Scout Squad™
Fast becoming a law enforcement favorite, it has a forward-mounted optical sight base. Sights mounted forward in a scout-rifle configuration vastly improve target acquisition and provide unobstructed access to the receiver mechanism. The quick-handling 18" barrel has six-groove rifling with a 1-in-11" rate of twist. The two-stage military trigger is factory set at 5-6 lbs. The front sight is a national match .062" military post, and the rear sight is a military aperture sight adjustable for windage and elevation. Also has a proprietary muzzle stabilizer and black synthetic stock. 10-round parkerized magazine included.

This version of the venerable M1A can be an effective close-quarters defense rifle or just a great "ranch gun." It has the minimum barrel length allowed for a rifle by federal law with six-groove rifling with a 1-in-11" rate of twist. Its two-stage military trigger is factory set at 5-6 lbs. The front post sight has a tritium insert for shooting in low light. The ghost-ring rear sight adjusts for windage and elevation. It has a proprietary muzzle brake, and a forward-mounted scope base that’s ideal for electronic sights or other accessories. 10-round parkerized magazine included.

Come hell or high water this rifle will work, and not only will it work you can shoot the wings off a fly with it. Very low required maintenance, I've gone shooting all day and been done cleaning in 15 minutes something you could never say about an AR. I have also never experienced any malfunction with her. My first rifle and Ill have it until the day I die.
