SPRINGFIELD ARMORY LOADED M1A RIFLE, BLACK COMPOSITE STOCK, STAINLESS STEEL BARREL
Springfield Armory Loaded M1A models are a true bargain, with nearly all of the features of the National Match rifles but at a discounted price.
The Loaded models have air-gauged barrels, just like the National Match. Air-gauged barrels are measured with a probe to gauge the uniformity of the bore to make sure that the bore diameter is within more stringent tolerances than standard barrels.
Loaded M1 models have the same trigger assemblies as the National Match, which are tuned to give a crisper, cleaner break than standard triggers. They have the same front and rear sights, although the rear sight isn't hooded. The Loaded M1A rifles have the same flash suppressor. You get almost all of the National Match performance and features on a Loaded M1A, but not the price.
This Loaded M1A comes with a black composite stock and stainless steel barrel. The black composite stock model is the least expensive of the Loaded M1A's, which makes it a good choice for customizing, such as swapping out the stock for one like this VLTOR model
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.
