Our Assessment: This Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM II is in Fine condition. It comes with some nice accessories that make this quite the tactical package. It comes with an fantastic Leupold 1.5-5x scope, a Surefire light/laser and the standard SOCOM II VLTOR quad rail for mounting other accessories as needed. The SOCOM rifles have a similar operating system as the M1A or M14, but with shorter 16 1/4″ barrels, making them easier to handle in closer quarters or transport in vehicles. Firing the .308 Winchester of 7.62 NATO cartridge, ammunition should be easy to find and will hit a little harder than something like a 5.56mm or 7.62×39. While the quad rail adds some significant weight, it can always be removed and you can use the iron sights or install a traditional M1A scope mount. This is a pretty versatile rifle that can be configured for a variety of purposes to suit your needs. Please see our photos and good luck!
