    New M1A

    Been waiting to get this one for awhile and since we all know what they look like how about a Tri Gun Pic




    It shoots Very well i only got to shoot 29 Rounds though it as that was all i took planing on buying some bulk ammo but they were out and were also out of 308..

    Now here is something i found odd the Barrel is Marked 308 and so is the box ..I expected it to be 7.62x51.. I know they are close to the same but not exactly .. but no big deal as 308 brass is easier to come by in reloadable form

    Not the best shooting but not bad for the crappy ammo i had..I know this stuff didn't Group to well in other guns .. Can't wait to try some good stuff






    the far one on the left and far one on the right i called flyers i don't know what the guy was shooting in the next lane but brass bopping ya in the head makes for bad shooting


    As ya can see by the pics i had to adjust the sights to the left some

    Nice M1A, I really like mine as well. Where you shooting off hand? or from a rest?

    With the right ammo, that group will shrink to a lot less at 100 yrds.

    Congratulations, Bud.

    I've always liked the M1As, I kinda got the hots for one of those 18" jobbies.
