Well gents I went with the deal. However the deal got better.
All the mags are GI.
All the parts are GI, except the receiver of course. Springfield receiver 081xxx
All the mags are 90% are better
I got 80 rounds of Nato ammo
Stainless Steel heavy Hart Bbl.
Over-sized USGI walnut stock.
Third gen. scope mount and rings.
National match front sight.

Yes I'm very happy.

If it's a Springfield receivered rifle (you did say M1A) it's a pretty good deal. Mags alone are worth around $400. Check to see if most of the parts are USGI.

Buy it....Even if you have to live on tuna fish and ramman noodles till your next paycheck.

Let the man who does not have a sword, sell his cloak and buy one.

If you do not go for a deal like that you will cry every time you think about, every time you go to the Springfield web site and look at that $1500 dollar price tag and think of what might have been.

Yes, buy it now... even though Springfield M1A's are junk you can recoup your investment if you choose to sell it.

The mags go for $50 a pop (if they're real USGI) and the pre-ban feature (that little itty bitty bayonet lug) is worth its weight in GOLD.

Pick it up. Shoot it. If it keeps its zero for more than one season at the range - then it's a keeper.

If it's the normal M1A investment cast dog - then you can always sell it for more than you paid for it.

You won't even "pay rent" for owning that!

Why are you here looking on the Net for your answer? BUY NOW. That is, conservatively, $400 in mags alone. BUY NOW.

Any questions?

WAIT, WAIT! Don't buy, that would be a terrible mistake!!! Now, how do I get hold of this guy?
Link Posted: 1/23/2002 8:24:27 PM EDT
sounds like a GREAT deal!!

If you want one BUY IT!!

As others have already typed, the magazines alone are worth a chunk of $$$

Who made the receiver,bolt,trigger group and barrel?
Those are important.

I seriously doubt you ever actually owned an M1A.
