    Hi all. I recently purchased my first m1a, it's a Springfield scout with the walnut stock. I have been using this forum to choose tools and learn the skills I need for my new rifle and thought I should register and be a part of the community. dance2

  5. Reloading Lessons Learned by a Newbie

    Ammunition
    I have owned an SAI M1A for several years, shot it not too often, bought ammo off the shelf. I've fired most everything from .22s to Tank Guns. But I never got close to the bullet making end of things, until now. I got a good deal on a Hornady Auto Progressive (AP) Press, but bare bones. Bought...

  12. Adjusting sights

    Hello. I just got back from the range shooting my new National Match m1a. What a blast! I was definitely a head turner. Anyway, the only problem I had was trying to adjust the sights. For the front sight I loosened the the bolt and tried to move the sight with my fingers but for the life of...
