Default New M1A National Match

A couple of years ago I purchased a NIB M1A "Loaded". I have yet to shoot it. I decided to give it to my son so I purchased a "used" NIB M1A National Match for myself. It was listed as used because it had been pre-owned. However, it is NIB with all paperwork and hang tags intact. I hit the Buy It Now so it wouldn't get away. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/765671586

Works for me.
Best way to get what you want is to jump right in with both feet.
Nice looking rifle.
Good luck Sir.

I marvel at the number of preowned yet unused M1As out there floating around; they seem to be everywhere. The M14/M1A is a pretty robust & enjoyable shootin' iron; it's OK to shoot them.

You are right about that. The AR15 put a lot of excellent M14 type match rifles into the safe for good. Many of us have picked these classic rifles up at estate auctions as the demographics of our population move on. Good Shooting. ...

A lot of folks are attracted to classic features of an M1A, only to later realize that ammo can be expensive or a suitable range too far away. There are also nearly half a million M1A's in circulation. They're not disposable like an AR or AK.
