Default Hope I got A Keeper!

I Traded for this older Springfield, though I cannot seem to fide a date of manufacture for Serial number 059026. Appears to be mostly HRA with NM front and rear sights
Question: will these shoot 168 match or are they made for the 147 load only?
any modifications needed?

Looks like mid 1990 era....

Found this reference to builds in your SN range....

042201 to 063000 This is the serial number range that I refer to as the Golden Age of the M1A. The receiver design had fully matured by this time. The receivers were hand finished by the original designer and master craftsman, Melvin Smith. Springfield Armory, Inc. was awash in USGI parts during this period. Thus, factory built standard model M1A rifles in this serial number range were built with a very high USGI parts count.
FWIW....

Your rifle will shoot 168 grain match loads without a problem. As far as modifications, that's really up to you and what you would like to add. Is it a necessity? No, the rifle will spit them out as it is.
