Springfield M1A with GI walnut stock.
Happy New Year to all. I have an offer to buy a M1A with match bbl. and GI walnut stock with the selective fire cutout for $995 + tax. It is super clean and comes with a 10 and 20 rnd. Springfield mag(s). I've been wanting one for years and this seems like a good deal. Do I keep saving and buy a new one for 5-600 more dollars or just get this one now? The model is a MA-9201 made in 1996-97. They were a standard loaded promo deal at the time before the regular "loaded" M1As were offered. Feel free to chime in.

Id jump on it if it was me, just my opinion tho

That certainly sounds like a "great deal" to me! :D It probably is a fantastic rifle and if it looks like it has barely been used that is a great deal and no worries. But if it has a lot of wear signs I would want to check the muzzle erosion on it with a muzzle erosion gauge.

Yeah, if I had the money in hand, it'd be all mine.

Make damn sure it (the rifle) can be field striped .PULL the trigger guard down, and remove the trigger group. I BOUGHT a M1a many years ago and ran into a big !problem A small pin in the trigger group shifted, and this prevented me from taking down the rifle.

If all is well with this rifle it sounds like a good deal.
