SPRINGFIELD ARMORY M1A SCOUT SQUAD RIFLE, WALNUT STOCK
The Scout Squad rifle is the carbine variation of the M1A, meant for close-in work. It's for this reason that many law enforcement agencies have adopted the M1A Scout Squad for their SWAT teams.
The Scout Squad has an optics base for red dot sights or other optics that's mounted forward of the receiver. Because the comb of the stock on the Scout Squad rifles is fairly low compared to the height of the rail, you may find that you'll need a cheek piece for using rail-mounted optics. You'll also want to make sure the optic you're going to mount to the rail has sufficiently long eye relief that you can utilize it fully when your cheek is on the stock.
The 18" carbon steel barrel makes maneuvering in tight quarters easier, but still gives very good accuracy. The model AA9122 features the standard walnut stock.
All Scout Squad rifles have a muzzle stabilizer, rather than a flash hider. The muzzle stabilizer is drilled such that spent gases are propelled outward and slightly rearward, reducing the amount of recoil you feel.
The Scout Squad rifles use the same sights as the standard M1A rifles, with the rear sight having 1 MOA ("Minute of Angle") adjustments for windage and elevation.
Caliber: 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.)
