Springfield Armory: M1A Super Match Rifle - 308 Win, 22" Heavy Match Douglas S/S Barrel, McMillian Black Fiberglass Stock
After World War II, the engineers at the US Government’s Springfield Armory set about designing a replacement for the M1 Garand. In 1959, the US military adopted the resultant M14. The rugged reliability of the M14 coupled with its formidable 7.62×51 NATO cartridge left an enduring impression on America’s fighting forces despite its relatively short tenure. When it was replaced in 1970, the stage was set for the next step in its history.
In 1974, the Reese family ensured that the legacy of the M14 would live on. Springfield Armory® in Geneseo, Illinois began offering a civilian legal semi-automatic version known as the M1A™. Powerful, accurate and reliable, M1A™’s were soon found dominating the National Matches at Camp Perry. Shooters across the country discovered the versatility and enjoyable satisfaction of owning an M1A™.
Today, the M1A™ is firmly established as a platform that can handle any mission, any condition, any foe at any range. M1A™’s are found in national competitions, in the hands of operators on elite tactical teams, and in the back country hunting big game. And although the M14 is no longer the service rifle of the US military, it still sees action as a designated marksman rifle and as a sniper rifle.
Whether you want a SOCOM for close quarters use or a Super Match to bring home first place, the M1A™ can do the job. Bring Enough Gun™. Bring the Springfield Armory® M1A™.
If domination on the firing line is what you’re after, the M1A™ Super Match from Springfield Armory® is the tool you need. The Super Match is the culmination of unsurpassed workmanship and all the best competition-legal features you can pack into a match rifle.
The rear-lugged action of the Super Match is masterfully glass bedded into an oversized stock. At the core of the Super Match’s unparalleled performance is the heavy match Douglas barrel. These oversized match barrels are the heaviest possible match-legal barrels that can fit in the M1A™, and they feature a 1 in 10 twist that gives optimal performance for the .308 match bullets we recommend. The Super Match also features a National Match recoil spring guide and a match-tuned gas cylinder. Add the match tuned 4.5 – 5lb two-stage trigger, .0595” hooded rear aperture (½ MOA adjustable) and .062” front sight, and the resultant rifle will blow away the competition with its precision and accuracy.
If you’re ready to take your match performance to the highest possible levels, then you’re ready to dominate with the M1A™ Super Match.
