    Haven't seen hardly any M1As for going on about a year now. I'm interested in the Scout Squad model.

    Has the production of these rifles dwindled? Has the AR10 types eaten into its market?

    Or they are just flying off the shelves as soon as they come in?

    I've seen them at all the recent gun shows I've been to.

    Maybe it's a local thing. I'll check Cabelas next time I'm there. Our big police supply store has been out of them and I don't see any at the LGSs either.

    Patten Guns in Bulverde usually has one or two in stock. Check their FB page as they update their inventory on there frequently.

    It's been the Austin/San Antonio area. Haven't looked around Houston in probably a year.

    Cabelas in Allen had three of them last week (Labor Day)

    one of the SOCOM models - and two of the wood stock base models

    they are really proud of them based on the price

    Gander Mountain in Lewisville had two - a synthetic and wooden stock

    no scout versions unless you count the SOCOM

    I should have mentioned the model I'm looking for in the title. I have seen the standard models and the SOCOM too. As much as I like the SOCOM, I feel the scout would be better for my purposes.

    I have seen a few in the Temple/ Killeen area without even looking. I am not sure about the Scout model specifically though as I don't really look for M1as. IIRC the prices weren't the best either.

    Agreed and agreed. Most of the ones that I've noticed were ~$2k ... no thanks ...
