The shorter M1A offerings might be the product of a different generation of buyers who are into shorter carbines. Certainly, comments here by a far older generation prefer the M1A to be in its original format for a ton of reasons. If the Socom and Scout rifles did not sell, they'd be off the SAI product line . It would appear there is a market for these shorter M1A and that demand has gone on for two decades. Incomprehensible to many why that is but It Is What It Is. Might be due to we are no longer a nation of riflemen, but a nation of 100 yd blasters.

Can't argue there is a market for these M1A that are length challenged. But after owning and shooting a build, just not a great solution for soo many reasons IMHO.


Around these parts, in a not soo gun friendly state...
Funny enough, the NYS un-Safe act made the "short" CQC version of the M1A more readily "compliant" compared to a full length knock everyone over in the room when turning around / sweeping the room USGI M1A/M14. So around here, the length challenged M1A's shot up in popularity and many full length were converted to socom model configuration to keep from registering them as AW. Yes a GI configuration M1A/M14 is considered a AW here. There are other NYS compliant barrels. Tried it, the shorter sight radius does no favors to the platform.

It's a toy, it's heavy and there are better choices. But if it scratches that itch, get it. We are retired now and really never should consider hauling this thing around for combat in a built up area. RLOL, just play with it.
