M1A is on my top 5 list now that I own a Garand. For my collection, I am trying to acquire examples of most of the weapons used in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the conflicts in recent history. I have a long way to go.

I love my M1As, all three of them. And, they do make good hunting rifles, especially in the woods here. They are even better after they have been accurized by a competent M14 armorer.

I couldn't agree more with your statement.

Really? Ever think that mybe the scope mount you used was junk

I have zero issues with my Sadlak mount or do I ever need to tweak it or ever have any issues. Rifle is standard, no mods

This is 10 rds with surplus ammo at 100 yds. 1 5/8 inch group Pretty darn good for a platform with so many issues and Surplus ammo. Notice it isnt a 3 rd group


Just built this one from scratch, all USGI parts on a Fulton receiver. Functions flawlessly

I use a Bassett mount. On off on off. No change in zero. I like the iron sights a lot. I use a removable cheek piece with the scope. Weight no more a problem than my Enfield.
I have no use for the black rifle, but think it's great for those that do.
