Hi , i just bought a new M1A ( M14 made by Springfield Genesco ) I went to the range and I shoot 50 rounds, 150 grains FMJ under 42 Grs IMR 4895, the rifle was accurate and no mechanical problems. But I have seen around the web some sites with photos of M1a exploded with some comments that SA genesco made this rifles with cheap material, now i'm quite warry to shoot with it again. Are the M1A really bad ? Tks Ric :(

I have not seen or read about any explodeing M1A's.

I did have some bore and bolt related problems with mine
out of the box. SA, Inc. fixed everything under warranty.
I am problem free now :D

Hawk is on target - enjoy your rifle.
