I am searching the board and others now for this information, But I thought I would see if you all could help me. Can you tell me a little about my parts on my M1A Scout. This thing runs perfectly but I have read that there problems with SA parts in the rifles that are not USGI. I was thinking about purchasing a spare complete bolt but was wondering what I actually had in the rifle. Any information about my rifle will be appreciated. Are my parts crap. Should I upgrade any of them?
Reciever serial number: 15836X When was my gun built? I believe the gent I purchased it from said 2003.
Bolt says 779018SA then below that it says F00084
Op rod : 7267064-2
Trigger group: 7267030-I
Thanks for your help guys..
