Newbie M1a Buying checklist question

1048 3
I am looking to buy a m1a very soon. if i dont find a good one before April i will pick one up at the Wanenmacher Show in Tulsa.
WANENMACHER WORLDS LARGEST GUN SHOW

that all being said. as a NEWBEE. what are areas i need to look at when looking over a used or for that matter a new M1a when buying. keeping in mind i more then likely wont be able to break it down and and inspect every part. what are some areas i can look at that may or can catch my eye to be concerned about?

I dont have a Go no-Go set YET or throat errosion gauges YET.

I know some here dont like the SA rifles and perfer others like FA. but i want a SA for no other reason then the lifetime warrenty.

TIA
MECHA
