Norinco receivers are top notch.

If it's not as tight of a performer as you want, that is the best starting place to throw some money.

What's the barell.

In the ARFCOM way....
NO. You should let me buy it and test it for you.....

I'd jump on it like stink on poo. I dont think you could get hurt and could always get your $ back out of it.

I paid $900 for an Armscorps, Springy bbl, TRW bolt and trigger group. FWIW

This deal sounds like something I'd jump on.

IIRC the barrels that come on the Norincos are decent and worthy of fine accurate blasting.

Buy!

The parts that need changing already have been. Nearly everything else is interchangeable except for (I think) 2 minor parts. Check with Different in the M1A forum if you need to. He's hands-down the M1A pro.


If you don't, IM me their name and number.

Yep.

It's a scam. The dealer is trying to rip you off.

Tell me who it is and I'll go give him a piece of my mind.

The only real downside to the M1A platform is the price of mags. If you don't mind Chinese mags, the T-57s I bought from Midway for $15 apiece were fine.

If you trust the dealer and his opinion, then you have your answer

Buy it.

Sounds like a good deal and the important work of swapping in a USGI bolt has been done.

I don't know alot of places in Bham. The only other place I can think ofmaybe is the FOP?

I think this company offers some work for them. Not sure if it is needed but I wonder why they offer these particular services.


Part way down the page for the chinese one.

I think it would be safe to say that the immediate east 'hood location is thrown out (though I saw a nice Norinco folding-stock SKS in there the other day...)

Wait a minute, I did see a U.S. M1A there as a special order sometime earlier this month! hmmmm....*

Oh... I thought you were going to ask some for advice on how to spell advice.

Got pictures of the rifle? Sounds like you got a decent deal. Nice rifle.

southeaster firearms appraisals is where i got it.



ah, ok. And the pics do work now. Is that your first M1A?

oh wow... that

Well, congrats on your new purchase. When my wife and I graduate and this "hobby" can come full circle once again, an M1A is at the top of my list. (right after Garand, and before AKM)

on that note, any new news about the Anniston storefront opening this spring?

Nice!

Now swap out that crappy flash supressor (or what ever the hell it is) with a USGI one that has a bayonet lug!

You can sell the comp to help finance the purchase of the USGI flash supressor.

Why is the gas cylinder plug so long?
