The M1 redefined the combat rifle and the M14 was an improvement in many infantrymen’s eyes. The M14 continued as a combat service rifle into the 1990s and for good reason. Those looking for a semiautomatic rifle in a caliber that packed a punch at long distances could find no better. Doubters needed to look no further than Camp Perry and the number of medals taken home by shooters of the M14. While that brought great credit to the rifle, it also had a price tag to match.
The Loaded M1A sports the appearance and tradition of the Standard M1A, but adds the performance upgrades making it a star at the range. For example, all Loaded models feature medium-weight premium air-gauged National Match barrels for greater accuracy. Competitive shooters and neophytes alike will appreciate the National Match tuned 4.5 to 5 lb. 2-stage trigger. A National Match front sight blade and non-hooded National Match rear aperture aid in precise target acquisition.
To meet your specific requirements and taste, Springfield has created several options to include different combinations of stocks and barrels. This ensures you’ll get a Loaded M1A to fill the perfect niche or start your collection. If you’re looking for a proven rifle that comes loaded with all the features you need, you need look no further than the Loaded M1A from Springfield Armory.
