SPRINGFIELD ARMORY SOCOM II RIFLE, URBAN CAMO STOCK
This model Springfield Armory Socom II rifle features an urban camouflage stock. Its 16 inch barrel is the shortest allowed for civilian use under federal law (without an ATF Form 4). A re-tuned gas system insures that the shortened barrel functions reliably. The new Cluster Rail allows you to mount a wide variety of optics, lights and other accessories that are designed to fit a standard Picatinny or 1913 style rail.
The sights are standard M1A sights, but the rear sight has a larger than standard aperture to allow faster target acquisition. The front sight has a tritium insert for sighting in low light.
The short barrel makes this rifle a good choice for close quarters work. It has the size of an M4 carbine, but the 7.62 NATO cartridge has substantially more power than the 5.56 NATO.
The urban camouflage design is much different than traditional camouflage designed for woods or field. The urban camouflage blends very well with fences, buildings, and other objects found in urban environments where surroundings tend to have more right angles and are more monotone than the softer-edged, brightly colored forest or field environments.
Caliber: 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.)
The first time you pick up an M1A, you'll be struck by its weight. For those who are used to handling rifles with forged or stamped receivers, the M1A comes as almost a shock. It has a receiver that's investment cast steel. Tolerances between the receiver, bolt, activation rod, and other parts is tight, which is one reason for the M1A's superb accuracy. It's a rifle that will last for decades, and go tens of thousands of rounds without showing signs of wear.
