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 :(

hi , thanks all of you for the clarification and suggestions, I usually shoot with my STG 58 ,41 grs of IMR 4895 on 168 grs Sierra match bullets, i think it is not a strong load also for the M1A and quite good accurate. BR Ric
