It's the simplest and one of the best mounts made for the M1A, if you want optics.
I use one across multiple rifles and never an issue.

I donít intend to compete in the near future but I might down the road if my skills are adequate. At the moment I am just looking for a nice M1A/M14 with good manufacturing quality to shoot and enjoy. Iím assuming any rifle I buy will need to be tweaked for accuracy.

I have had my SA M1A since 2014 I purchased it new.. 300K serial number shoots like a champ and I do compete with it.. But like some had said before there are some really nice rifles out there that are non SA if you want to drop the dime on them.. But for me a life time warranty and proven accuracy. I will stick with SA..

Competing is one of the best teaching tools you can get... You will learn quickly what you need to do. People from all skill levels compete.. The National Matches are one great time and you will meet many people that will just blow your mind with all they know..


2 years ago I shot in the vintage match with a gent that was 79 years old/young he was using a Krag he kicked my butt flat out If i remember right he shot 290

As Shakespeare would say... the cast vs. forged debate appears to be much ado about nothing.

I'm still waiting to see evidence that a receiver failed because it was cast.

Bula/JRA hands down. Nothing wrong with a proper cast receiver rifle (fulton). But if the prices are close get the JRA which has a forged receiver, bayo lug etc.

The SAI m1a is pretty far from M14 specs in other ways too.

My Bula rifle holds 10 ring on sr1 for 10 shots with 168s.
