Almost Ready to Go!

I wanted to share some pics of the most recent project that I have been working on.

This rifle started life as a SA Loaded M1A, however, I wanted to see if I could perform all of the modifications to make this rifle a Full NM M1A. All parts were converted to NM specs. The only thing that was left undone for the longest time was the bedding.

I have been practicing "bedding" using two different styles of bedding and I decided to use the style as shown in an instructional video by Art Lupino. This style did NOT require the removal of the FH and Gas system to bed.

So far, everything looks and feels good. I only need to shoot it now to see if these mods have made a significant change or not.

I mounted a scope to validate accuracy and not leaving it up to these old eyes...

I hope it shoots as well, as it looked...

Aloha and Best Wishes,

Tom O.

Looks great Tom.

You’re defiantly a braver man than I. You do a much better job too.

My “gunsmithing” skills only go so far as disassembly, cleaning and reassembly.

I hope it shoots well, please do let us know.

Best regards, T
