This is for the guy that has been interested in a m1a and is ready to buy .This hypothetical buyer is looking at spending 1000 to 1500 bucks .He isn't a competitive shooter just a guy with a job and family and 1500 dollars is a lot of money ,probabally the largest thing he will buy himself until his kids get out of college .He knows what the new springfeilds go for and he has his eye on a couple of used possible deals .Ok experts what does he look for to not get ripped off .i will start with the obvious ,if it is too good to be true it is probabally not true.

I got my SAI std sort of in a rush before they got banned in Md and paid a bunch for it at Cabela's. Then after getting on this forum I would hear of prices well under $1,500 for a std. I think if you can get those prices where you are at then get an SAI and you'll have a lifetime warranty if you get one that has an issue if money is the main issue. I know it's tough to check every thing in a shop or if your order one in before you shoot it. Some places don't want you field tripping it all up and down when they are showing guns, etc.

Sorry I didn't focus on the 'used' consideration. I was thinking of new SAIs. I still could of sworn there were new ones under 15.
