Springfield Armory unveils M1A in 6.5 Creedmoor

Demonstrating 6.5 Creedmoor’s stronghold on the rifle community, Springfield Armory just announced a new M1A chambered in the popular Creedmoor cartridge.

The M1A measures between 45-inches and 46.24-inches and features an unloaded weight of 11.4-pounds. Touting a 22-inch, medium weight, stainless steel National Match Grade barrel, the M1A serves up a long sight radius. The barrel opts for a four-groove 1-in-8-inch RH twist and tops off its design with a muzzle brake to “put rounds right where intended.”

Equipped with a NM Grade .062 front post sight combined with a non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight, the rifle offers 1/2 MOA wind and 1 MOA elevation adjustments. Rounding out the basics is the 2-stage trigger tuned to 4.5 to 5-pounds.

“Having a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber in the M1A lineup gives long-range shooters more choices with the precision and accuracy they require,” said Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese in a press release. “They can choose the round they prefer, and take advantage of the legendary accuracy of the M1A platform to make the most of their shooting prowess.”

Shooters have a choice of either a solid black composite stock or a precision-adjustable stock. The precision-adjustable model allows users to dial in fit while offering either black or flat dark earth colors. The M1A ships with a 10 round magazine.

“Our mission is, and always will be, to offer responsible citizens the finest firearm and the most thorough customer support of any brand,” said Reese. “You can see that commitment in every product we make.  It especially shines in the new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A.”

The M1A in 6.5 Creedmoor with composite stock is priced at $1,985 while the precision-adjustable stocks knock the price up to $2,045.
