    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.

    Yes, me and Google go way back. ;) Problem is, my company blocks 99% of all weapons-related websites. They also block 99% of all message boards. How TexasGunTalk makes it through the filter, I'm not sure...but I ain't complainin'!
