I have a rare chance to buy a M1A style rifle at a good price and get to have it soon. The conditions are it has to be from Springfield Armory. There is one in-particular M1A style rifle that they sell that I cant buy for the good price but dont know what iit is (at the moment), but if that happens I'll just go with the better model just under that one and I cant have anything from the custom shop. (I'd be doing any custom work myself anyhow). I want to know some of you guy's experiences with the M1A style rifles to help me decide. Should I get the Stainless Steel option for the barrel? Do the fiberglass stocks feel flimsy and a bit plasticy as some people keep saying? What kind of accuracy can I expect out of different models realisticly? I'll be using this gun for a target gun and a fun-factor gun as well as a replacement for my FAL (I wanted something that's a bit more of an American Classic battle rifle). I wont be lugging the gun around in the woods since I dont want to mess up a good stock and a the potiential custom work on the stock I have planned. I'm eyeballing the SuperMatch M1A and the M21 Tactical, any gripes, complaints, comments on any of the M1A rifles would be much appreciated.
