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.

I found an SAI new in the box 7 years ago for Doc White. It cost him $15,000.00 and five months of waiting for his NFA tax stamp. Haven't seen another one since, not new anyway.

Pretty rare I thought....so we got it. He invited me to go shooting it with him but I haven't had the time yet, but he sure has,.... a lot.

He smiles from ear to ear when talking about shooting it.

Here's one currently for sale. Ruben is usually on the high end of price, but is honest and a gentleman to deal with.

If I remember correct they also made a select fire BM59 and also offered the select fire M1A in the M14E2 configuration. I used to collect SA Inc for sale brochures in the early 80's when I was in high school. My first Garand was a 7 million serial number range M1 that was all USGI but the receiver. Got it in 1986 for $475.
