  1. M1A Loaded EBR Hammer Broke/Replaced

    Modern M14
    Thanks to Orlando I was able to replace my broken cast hammer on my M1A. Springfield honored the warranty but they wanted me to ship the trigger group to them. I figured it was better to keep my trigger and replace it with a GI hammer. Thanks to you all and Orlando, easy sauce.
  2. M1A Loaded EBR to M1A NM Stock?...

    The M14
    I’m gonna ask, though I might get slapped through my screen.... Do I dare relocate my Loaded M1A into a NM stock while keeping the EBR op rod block in place to help secure it? I realize I’ll have to notch out my NM stock but I’m wondering what kind of accuracy I’ll see out of it. Dare I say...
  3. Scoping my M1A

    Hi all, I am going to mount a SIG Tango 4 scope on my M1A loaded (Archangel Stock). The mount is a Springfield Armory 4th Gen Steel mount. Questions: What height rings? The Tango 4 has a 2" objective bell Should I consider QD rings/mount? Any information much appreciated. Bobby

    About a month ago I finally bought an M1A, I've wanted one for about 25-30 years. Back then the $799 price tag scared me away. Wow, have things changed since then. This is the 'loaded' version and I love it!

    The M14
    Ok, With all the tinkering and fear of my Loaded not shooting like I want it to; I bid on a NIB Super Match SA9804 in McMillan stock. I got it at a lower price than those listed on Buds and similar websites and it is close enough for store pickup so there won't be shipping costs... What are...

  8. Replacing barrel M1A Loaded

    I have an M1A loaded that needs to have its barrel replaced. I was hoping to switch to a scout-type shorter barrel. Would I have to buy a medium contour barrel? Or would the normal ones work?
  9. Loaded Or National Match For First M1A?

    The M14
    Sorry if this has been covered, but I tried the search function and didn't have any success. I'm about to take the plunge into M1A world. I'd like to get an out-of-the-box rifle that won't need much in the way of mods to be reliable or accurate, and won't break the bank (so an LRB is not...

  14. Finish Quality on New SAI M1A. Your opinions please.

    The M14
    After bringing home a brand new Loaded SAI M1A, I was a little disappointed by the quality of the finish on the metal parts. I'm a little OCD with scratches and blemishes on my guns. I found 2 tiny ( and I mean tiny) spots where the parkerized finish was missing, exposing a metalic...
