the most critical things are the reciever barrel and bolt.

you CAN get them seperate and have a good smith that knows how to barrel a m1a/m14 barrel it and using the bolt you should also have at the time set the headspace. so you need those three things as a minimum before seeking a smith to get em together.

after that its just parts. unlike an ar15 there really isnt a standard anymore for m1a parts. i would strongly recomend sourcing as much as possible from the same source and even then you may be facing fitting work

it can be done

So I ended up buying a Socom II from my boss. It wouldn't be my first choice for a M1A but he gave me to good of a deal. I'm getting rid of the synthetic stock and the rail system. I plan on putting a wood stock on it and making it look nice and classic. Where can I get good magazines? Preferably 20 rounders. I have 4 aftermarket magazines that aren't worth a damn. I've read good things about CMI mags. Anyone used these? I don't know what kind mine are, there are no markings.
