Welcome on board M1AJohnWick, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great week ahead.
Thank you everyone for your warm welcome. I am a correctional officer in North Dakota. I am here on this site to learn about the M14/M1A, and purchase at least two.
I want to purchase an M1A/Socom 16 for defense on the compound I live on. It is roughly 6+acres and I believe the Socom 16 is a perfect fit for defending this property.
I am also going to be entering a law enforcement sniper training by next May-September, and I am torn between an M1A, and a bolt action .308. I will accept ANY, and ALL input, opinons and any information on the M1A as a modern sniper platform (as well as appropriate scope, etc). I do not believe in quantity, but rather quality when it comes to firearms, so I am going to make sure that I purchase quality M1A rifles. And, I am sure that there are quite a few members on here that have experience in the field of sniper/designated marksmen, and I would be honored by ANY, and ALL input from you.
I do have several other rifles and pistols, but, quite frankly I am a little embarrased to say that they are all German made of the HK variety. I am now totally focused on the M1A, it's history, and most importantly, it's reliabilty. Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and have a great day!
About to trade one of my ARs for a Springfield M1A Scout and I'm pretty excited but also nervous since I've heard both good and bad things about it. Any advice is appreciated. Also if anyone has a walnut stock they're tryna sell, let me know:)
Thank you for allowing my admission to this forum.
Looking to buy my first M14/M1A/M21 soon. I was going to make my purchase for a new Springfield M1A Scout squad in GunBrokers but none are currently available. Just last month more than a few were listed. I did some more research and found...
