Springfield Armory Loaded M1A

Description

The Springfield Loaded M1A is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO or .308 Win. The M1A is a civilian version of the famous M14, which was once a standard issue US military rifle and known to be very accurate and reliable. The Loaded has many of the same features as Springfield’s National Match M1A except for the glass bedding. And it is also available in a variety of stocks.

Features include a national match two-stage trigger that sets off the action with a 4.5- to 5-pound pull. It has a match hooded rear sight aperture that’s like looking through a pinhole. It’s also adjustable for windage and elevation. It also has a fixed blade front sight. The national match flash suppressor helps reduce muzzle climb, so the shooter can stay on target after every shot. And it is available with barrel made of carbon steel or stainless.

It has a gas-operating system, so propellant gases are captured by a tube near the muzzle, the tube connects with the bolt, another tube on the bolt catches the gas, and the gas pushes the bolt back so it can eject a spent casing and chamber a fresh round.
