Better go look. I THINK I saw 1k for 350 somewhere.I'm shopping for prices and availability.
I handled an M1A for the first time at Academy last night. Absolutely fell in love. For me, it balanced absolutely perfectly, was robust yet not unduly heavy, and the attention to detail... Who the hell checkers the face of a peep to reduce glare? Springfield does.
