With most semi-automatic rifles being made of polymer and aluminum these days, there’s still a retro streak among some shooters that clamors for steel and walnut. Based on the M14, Springfield’s M1A fills that niche well, delivering accuracy and reliability—as it has for more than 40 years.
Springfield Armory has been making the M1A, the semi-automatic-only successor to the M14, since 1974.
Based on the M14, this semi-automatic rifle is known for its robust construction, long-range performance and its 7.62x51 mm NATO chambering.
