The black composite stock M1A is the least expensive model in the Springfield Armory M1A line. It has all of the features of the standard rifle: the carbon steel barrel; military sights with 1 MOA adjustments for windage and elevation; the two-stage military trigger; and the M1A's legendary accuracy and dependability.

The MA9106 model makes a great platform for building a custom M1A, too. Because the black composite stock model is the least expensive of the M1A models, it's also a good choice for customizing, such as putting the receiver and barrel into custom stocks like the tan adjustable model from VLTOR (right),tan custom M1A stock from VLTOR or the aluminum adjustable stock from Smith Enterprises Inc (below).

Springfield Armory Standard M1A Rifle Reviews:

Overall Rating: review stars, 4.5 out of 5 possible stars 4 out of 5
By Anonymous, Oklahoma City, OK

"This rifle is accurate and reliable, but I am disappointed that Springfield doesn't currently offer ANY of their rifles with a chrome-lined barrel, as per the GI specs.

When I bought the rifle, I thought that all Standards had chrome-lined barrels like they used to, and was unpleasantly surprised to find that mine did not. I am considering selling it and buying a rifle from another manufacturer because of the lack of this feature.

Also, the trigger group is really hard to get out. It has some burrs on the metal on the slot that engages the receiver. I suppose I could send it in for warranty work on this. "
