About the Springfield M1A
The springfield armory m1a magazine for sale is a gas-operated semi-auto rifle, based on the renowned M14 service rifle, fielded by the US Military from 1959 to 1970 after the revered M1 Garand was retired from service at the end of the Korean War.
Introduced in 1973 and designed specifically for civilian shooters and law enforcement agencies across the United States, the M1A is essentially the same thing as the M14, retrofitted for civilian use making it one of the most iconic semi-auto rifles ever to hit the civilian market. Chambered in .308 Win. or 6.5 Creedmoor, the M1A is offered in classic and traditional models, including the Standard Issue and Tanker models, as well as tuned precision variants and modern tactical versions such as the SOCOM 16™ and Loaded series rifles.
