Just got my first M1A. It is a used SA Standard with black synthetic stock. The serial number on the receiver does not match the one on the bolt. Should this be a concern?
Also, plan on changing out the rear aperture for a NM one by Kreiger. Front sight has already been changed to a NM.
Plan on shooting a lot of surplus through this weapon. Are their any makes and years to avoid? Additionally, what surplus is recommended?
Eventually I plan on scoping this rifle for longer range shooting, but for now I am comfortable with irons.
Thanks in advance.
