Found me a 1990 Springfield M1A. Thought I was buying a National Match but when I ran the serial number through Springfield they said it was a Super Match!

Wow that stock is dark. Way to go!!!!!! Super match is bedded I believe. You know what, I don't know what the difference is. Looks very nice though.

If it is a super match it should be beded and have a double lugged reciever.

Nice kick in the nuts homo!!

If he wants to call his new gun a Super Match, then let him have his fun spankweed! !

It is bedded. I didn't pull it apart to check for rear lugs, I know new Super Matches are rear lugged but not sure if they were in 1990.

As far as "IF he wants to call his new gun a Super Match, then let him have his fun"comment, I don't know if that was a shot at me or not but that was from calling the serial number into Springfield Armory TWICE to double check what I was told the first time. I'm not calling it something other than what I was told.

What is wrong with you? Some people would like to know what it really is instead of just thinking they have something they don't. I guess you like to live in a fantasy world.

No shot or kick in the pants intended. I just wanted to share some info with you. I guess
longhorn789 is still in his name calling years.

No problem MLM1219, I checked it is not rear lugged. So I don't know if they were ALL rear lugged or not back in 1990. Springfield Armory ran the serial number for me twice, I got two different people to run the numbers. I'll check into it more.

I have a SM, made in '94 that does not have a rear lug.



Glad to hear that.

It's wide like a SM


and heavy like one too

The stock is a super match.

Check the Sprinfield site. The supermatch is only offered at most to be a single lug. Springfield does not offer a double lug.

What you have really looks great. Go out and shoot it. You will have fun.

You got a great deal.

Nice to end up with more than you expected, isn't it? I

Fantastic find!

Rear lugged or not........

I bet that's why it's darker than what I'm used to seeing. I wonder if that's walnut. I think longhorn just wanted to try out his stupid characters. Or he was smoking crack. One of the 2.

Nice, nice rifle.
Link Posted: 5/22/2005 6:14:10 PM EDT
I think that's a Fajen stock; look at the pistol grip. It's more defined than a standard stock or Big Red.

Geez guys. I wasn't "taking a shot" at either one of you.

What is wrong with me? How much time do you have??

Yes. I live in a fantasy world. Why?

Yes. I am still in my name calling years if that means I am old enough to own Johnny Cash on LP, 8-Track, tape, CD and now on an IPOD........which I do.

Sorry if I got either of you guys upset.

Have fun.

No problem Longhorn just sounded like I was being called a liar or I was making things up.

If anything, 3404, I was sticking up for you because all the posts were congratulatory until you get to the guy that questioned your identification of your own new rifle. Just seemed like he was raining on your parade.

I jabbed back at him, tongue in cheek, but he, and you, took it all the wrong way.

I meant it as a rib jab, wink, and slap on the back.....but you can see what happened instead.
