Our Assessment: The Loaded Series combines the appearance and tradition of the Standard M1A™ with all the next level upgrades you want without sucker punching your wallet. All Loaded models have a medium-weight premium air-gauged National Match barrel for greater accuracy, plus several combinations of stocks and barrels available to ensure customization perfection. 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 Loaded is in Fine-Excellent condition and should make its new owner smile every time they take it out to the range. Please see our photos and good luck!
