SPRINGFIELD ARMORY M1A SCOUT SQUAD RIFLE, MOSSY OAK STOCK, CARBON BARREL
The Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad rifle is perfect for close quarters engagements. The 18" barrel makes maneuvering through tight places easier. It's a heavier rifle than other CQB rifles, especially those firing 5.56 NATO, but the weight helps reduce the felt recoil from the more powerful 7.62 NATO cartridge.
The Scout Squad model features an optics rail mounted forward of the receiver. This rail sits very far forward compared to rails on other models of rifles, so make sure any optic you get for the Scout Squad has long enough eye relief for you to see through it fully when your cheek is on the stock.
The Scout Squad rifles have a different style of muzzle brake than other M1A rifles. It's designed to expel the gases from the muzzle outward and slightly to the rear, minimizing the amount of recoil delivered to your shoulder.
This model comes with a Mossy Oak finish synthetic stock that hides well in the bush or forest, and will withstand being bumped or even dropped.
Caliber: 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.)
The first time you pick up an M1A, you'll be struck by its weight. For those who are used to handling rifles with forged or stamped receivers, the M1A comes as almost a shock. It has a receiver that's investment cast steel. Tolerances between the receiver, bolt, activation rod, and other parts is tight, which is one reason for the M1A's superb accuracy. It's a rifle that will last for decades, and go tens of thousands of rounds without showing signs of wear.
