During the first gulf war a friend said they had equipped their Merchant ship with SaInc rifles and 2 contract Men/Solders? who were responsible for security...he specifically said they were Commercial Rifles with the switch...anyone know about full auto Commercial rifles???????

Springfield Armory Inc. produced 125 select fire m1a rifles. If my memory is correct I think there were some other firms that would also convert them to select fire also.

There was one at a Gun Shop near Catoosa Range, Ringgold Georgia years ago. I was tempted but could not pull off the price on an E5's pay. Wonder what one of these would bring today? Anyway the one I saw was mostly GI parts with new stock and a SAI full auto receiver.

I have seen them in the 10 to 12,000.00 price range.

FYI from the book, The Last Steel Warrioer: U.S. M14 Rifle, by Frank Iannamico, page 355:



...so 125 were sold back in 1985, but are obviously much more expensive today as supply is zero, but demand remains.
