Great looking rifle,Jon.

I love those rifles after I shot the one Lon got from M14sRock.I just can't force myself to buy one.

I shoot too much ammo as it is now,I would really burn it up with a M1A.

Congrats Jon, great rifle. The more you shoot it, the more you will not want to shoot anything else.

Beautiful rifle. It will hit a head-size bullseye at 500 yards with irons. Green with envy.

after just one shoot and 30 rounds down range i can see why people like the springfields. its crazy accurate. my 200yd groups with irons were looking like a lot of peep's scoped 100yd groups.

i put an order in for a bassett mount. hopefully it will be here before the weekend. cant wait to see what it can do scoped.

You should be fine then. Might need a cheek rest. Desert Warrior Products has a very good one for the standard walnut stock.
