Not that anyone needs a reason to want a Springfield Armory M1A, but chambering it in 6.5 Creedmoor? Oh, yeah. The company announced today that it is offering three variations of its M1A rifle in the powerful caliber.
“Having a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber in the M1A lineup gives long-range shooters more choices with the precision and accuracy they require,” says Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese. “They can choose the round they prefer, and take advantage of the legendary accuracy of the M1A platform to make the most of their shooting prowess.”
The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is offered with a choice of a solid black composite stock, or a precision-adjustable stock that lets shooters dial in individual fit and feel. A 10-round magazine comes with each rifle.
The M1A’s National Match Grade, 22" medium weight stainless steel barrel provides a long sight radius for optimal iron sight accuracy, with a 4-groove 1:8" right-hand twist and muzzle brake. The NM Grade .062 post front sight is paired with a NM Grade non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight that’s ideal for distant targets and adjustable for ó MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation. The two-stage trigger is National Match tuned to 4.5 – 5 lbs. Paired with a SA scope mount and the right optic, the new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A can be a “true 1000-yard rifle.” MA9826C65CA 6.5 Creedmoor with Black Composite Stock MSRP: $1985.
