Our Assessment: This is a nice Springfield Armory M1A that looks like it saw much more time in the previous owners safe than at the range. The M1A has been a popular rifle with target and competition shooters for decades, tracing its roots back to the M14 rifle used by US troops from 1959 to this very day, though in more limited roles than in the ’50s. This would be a great rifle for hunting, competition, or recreational target shooting. This M1A is in Excellent condition and should make its new owner smile every time they take it out to the range.
