Ok, there is a NM SpringM1A here for 1400. SS barrel NM sights. I am going insane trying not to put this thing on my credit card. Any advice? Yes I am married by the way. Wouldnt mean a divorce but other sanctions may ensue.

Swipe that card now my friend! I think Springfield has a special deal now that if you buy a M1A you get a $400+ springfield scope for $99. Buy the gun and get the scope for the extra $99 and then put the scope on EBAY and get $400. So then you would only have $1100 in the gun.

Do Not - I repeat DO NOT buy that POS Springfield Gov't Model scope for the $99 deal. Everyone who I have heard has one says it ain't even worth $9.

I have the partially NM M1A (only gunpowder-powered projectile hurling device) with the NM barrel and sights, synthetic stock. You will love it! only advice that I have is to shop around (you will find used ones out there), buy surplus NATO Hiry ammo, and use the coupon to get the scope mount. DC

Garand, the point is not to keep the scope, but to sell it on EBAY. People everyday buy crap on EBAY.

It is far better to ask for forgiveness than permission. [most likely a quote from some divorced guy]

That $99 does include the third generation mount also. I find it hard to believe that the scope and mount wouldn't be worth $99.

Lee, your quote is loosely taken from Admiral Rickover(father of nuclear navy) when he retired. I think he was in his 80's when he retired.

Is it the one with the great looking walnut stock or the synthetic stock? I was going to buy one last year and between the 2 gun shows (1 month apart) the price jumped up 100 bones! I am still going to get it soon...very soon! It just kind of ticked me off that they jumped the price up! One of these days I will be saying "Come to papa!"[:D] Lynn [sniper]

Just for a little information. Davidsons which is a large wholesaler had about 35 of the M1-a before 9-11. I checked today and no m1-a and no bushmasters in stock all gone by-bye. Work your dealer down about 100.00 and you should be in the ball park. The scope is not bad but the mount sucks!!

The scope deal ends Sept 31, better hurry!
