Hello, just found this place, actually I was recommended here quite some time ago from another forum, and have been shooting M1A,s for quite awhile. I Currently have a SA M1A "Loaded Version" I purchased in 1996. She's getting a little tired as the groups she lays out are starting to open up a bit. Have had a scope on it and am back to iron sights for now. Probably go back to scope next year sometime as my eyes are getting a tad old. Glad to find a site mostly dedicated to this rifle.
