Does a rifle this age have mostly original G.I. parts? I just recently bought this rifle, and it is near new condition. I called Springfield with the serial number and was told that the rifle was made December 1981. I am a long time M16/AR15 man, and I am just now getting in to the M1A game. I have wanted an M1A for quite some time, and I have finally got one.

There's plenty of info on Different's website and other M14 sites where you can check the bolt, barrel, oprod and trigger group. Just tear into it and see. There are too many variables to just go by a DOB.

Without a doubt, an M1A of that vintage should have all GI parts except the receiver. I had a 1982 SuperMatch that was all TRW except the barrel (Douglas) and receiver.
