I've always wanted an M1A and I finally bought one about a month ago. It's a loaded stainless with a synthetic stock, and since it was originally a California gun, it came with the factory Springfield compensator; which works pretty well.

The Loaded model comes with the majority of National Match components, including an air-gauged 1:11 match barrel, sans the bedded wood stock. I've seen the same model do sub-MOA groups at 100 yards with factory match loads so it's got alot of potential.

The trigger is pretty good for a factory gun. It's the two-stage National Match trigger and has about a 4 - 4.5 lb. pull weight. Not too light, not too heavy, with a clean break. The rear match aperture is very narrow and makes the irons accurate, but hard to see through.

Congrats Alan!! Yea, those are and will always be premier classics to own... I love mine and actually thinking about getting another M1A but as a Socom 16 to put it in a JAE-100 stock configuration.
