Good Morning, I'm getting ready to purchase a M1A and I'm not familiar with this gun at all. From doing a little research on it I'm ASSUMING its an M1A Super Match. The stock is huge! and the gun weighs a Ton! My main concern is the rear lug it appears to have weld marks. From what I understand the factory welded the rear lugs onto the gun but I would assume once again that the marks would not show or would be below the wood level, unless once its bedded it raises the reciever up slightly. I have also read that may people had the guns "Made" and rear lugs installed after purchase by a gunsmith. Anyhow ANY help would be appreciated before I make a mistake and buy a butchered firearm. If the gun is normal I think I'm stealing it for the price hes wanting. I'm posting a few pictures of it. Oh it has a Springfield Gen 1 4X14 56mm scope on it.
