Our Assessment: The M-1A, built on the M-14 platform, is a terrific rifle. Still in combat today, as the go-to rifle when a hard-hitting cartridge is needed. This offers the advantages of both knock-down power and enhanced range over the somewhat anemic 5.56 cartridge, the M-1A makes a fine battle rifle, or in this configuration, a thoroughly capable modern sniper rifle. the Millett scope is powerful and clear, enhanced with Mil-dots for precise shots out to the maximum effective range of the powerful .308 cartridge for which it is chambered. The rifle is a battle-tested warhorse; the build quality is terrific; this is a great rifle that is going to make a very happy owner of the lucky winning bidder.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
