Springfield Armory’s M1A Series has a hard-won reputation for handling any mission, any condition, any foe, at any range—and for taking home trophies from monster bucks to National Match crowns. Highly precise .308 WIN-chambered M1A models are found in the hands of elite tactical teams, snipers, backcountry hunters and competitive marksmen. Now, skilled shooters can get unmatched Springfield M1A performance in 6.5 Creedmoor caliber.

Springfield M1A Loaded in 6.5 Creedmoor

With high muzzle velocity, low recoil, and extreme long-range accuracy, the Creedmoor round is becoming increasingly popular and easily accessible. The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor makes the most of the ammo’s attributes with the rifle design, craftsmanship, balance and response known to Springfield Armory’s storied M1A platform.

The M1A’s National Match Grade, 22-inch medium weight stainless steel barrel provides a long sight radius for outstanding iron sight accuracy, with a 4-groove 1:8 right hand twist and shot-steadying muzzle brake to put rounds right where intended. 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 ½ MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation. The 2-stage trigger is National Match tuned to 4.5–5 pounds, for a crisp, confident pull. The new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A is a “true 1000-yard rifle” that delivers a level of shooting satisfaction few rifles can match, especially when paired with an SA scope mount and your optic of choice.

The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor boasts a precision-adjustable stock that lets shooters dial in individual fit and feel, without the time and expense of custom jobs. A 10-round magazine smoothly feeds rounds into the chamber for reliable shooting.

With a length of 45 to 46.24 inches and unloaded weight of 11.4 pounds, the new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is a well-balanced, fast-handling and solidly substantial tool for marksmen eager to raise their long-distance performance.

For California Residents: A CA legal version of the M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is available with a California-approved muzzle brake and non-adjustable stock.

    Heck, Fulton Armory has offered a 6.5 Creedmoor M14 for quite a while now. Might S, Inc. have gotten the idea from Fulton Armory :-) ?

    I used an M-!4 with an ART while serving in the army. It was deadly to 1000 meters, and a good bet even a bit further. but the 6.5 creedmoor. is a waste of a good action. the 260 rem is every bit the equal of the creedmoor and is FAR better suited for the garand action. But unless you are a pansy and feel the minor felt recoil from a 10+ lb rifle in .308 win is even a consideration, the 168 match BTHP extreme low drag bullets are at least for me, a superior combination of accuracy and range. I own a bolt gun in both 260 rem and .264 win mag and the .264 bullet is NOT a magic caliber. its good on light skinned animals when using a proper expanding bullet, but that drops range capability. The M-14 (M1a) is a proven battle rifle, capable of decent accuracy ant all ranges out to 1000 meters, but it IS an auto loader, and as such, has limitations. it is NOT a bolt gun, and will never perform as well as a bolt gun, so if extreme precision at long range is your goal, get a bolt gun. If VERY respectable retained energy at 1000 plus meters, where multiple targets will be engaged and time is critical,
    the M-14 (M1a) or AR-10 in .308 is what the doctor ordered.
