New in box, National Match Springfield M1A for $1800. Good price?

Equiring minds want to know!

Pretty much a regular price for this gun; you might be able to find it for a little less.

I know. Should be lower is what I meant.

Anybody have any opinions if all National Match is that much better than Loaded? If it's just the bedding that adds so much more to the rifle, is it really worth it for the price difference?

Post this question on the competitions forum. If you talk to serious highpower shooters that are still using M1A's, they will tell you to get a kit or a bottom end rifle and send it to a reputable M1A gunsmith for proper buildup/setup; there is more to it than just glass bedding. On the other hand, I have read at least one report that the NM M1A is a pretty nice shooter, probably worth the extra money if you are not just plinking.

Here are other sites to ask this question -

Edited to add that Google is your friend. About two minutes search time.

www.webarms.com $1661.00/$1689.00 stainless barrel
www.impactguns.com $1669.00
www.ozarkguns.com/rifles/springfield/springfieldm1a.htm $1679.00/$1721.00 stainless barrel
