I did that deal. Then I traded the scope+$100 for a used 4x14x56 Springfield Government model scope. For the money you can't beat it

That mount appears to sit awfully close in that picture. I would think it would give you a poke in the eye.

Doc: does this come out cheaper or more reliable than a SA M1A? Those are the only reasons I could see going that route. I am interested though. Can you give me any details on what you paid and what components went into yours? TIA.

A USMC armorer once told me the same thing. I guess I had temporarily forgotten it. You will actually spend about 10-20% more, but end up with TWICE the gun. Get a Kreiger barrel, 'glass stock, and all USGI parts. You'll end up with a race gun, for just a little bit more than the base model.

Oh crap, now you've done it. I've been wanting to get an M1A National Match for quite some time. Got the money saved and there is room in the safe. I convinced myself that I should do some house repairs first. You know, be responsible. My wife is gonna sh#t when she sees a new rifle!

You should get your M1A now and a bunch of mags. I have a bunch of Red Chinese mags that function flawlessly. I think that with Geo. Bush Jr. in the Prez, we don't have too much to worry about at the moment, but that could very quickly change. "A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush."

Have spoken with the people at both Thunder Ranch and Storm Mountain about Springfield scopes. Both Thunder Ranch and Storm Mountain people say that they have never ever had a Springfield scope make it all the way through one of their courses with out breaking. Never, ever. That's a 100% failure rate. To put it bluntly Springfield scopes su*k the big one. They are useless for anything but very gentle purposes i.e. for your grandmother to shoot from her rocking chair at church on Sunday.

Umm, did Springfield misspell M1A? Check the URL. Looks like mia not m1a to me.

I'd like to get a M1A, but I spent my money on a LEGP!! BTW, why did they just up their prices on all of their handguns. I want to get a Longslide, but it went from $749 to $1003!!!

That must be Hook. He did an awesome rifle for me last year. He's EXTREMELY reasonable too. Eric
