Springfield Armory Loaded M1A rifle with stainless barrel and walnut stock

The Springfield Armory Loaded M1A models add some attractive features to the base standard model, features that give you superior performance at a price that's still affordable. Many of these features are found on the more expensive National Match M1A rifles.

Loaded M1A rifles have air-gauged national match barrels. What is "air gauged"? A probe is inserted into the barrel to measure the air between the probe and the barrel wall, thus measuring the uniformity of the bore diameter. When a manufacturer refers to a barrel as "air-gauged", it means that the bore diameter is uniform to within more stringent tolerances than standard barrels.

The Loaded M1A models also have national match trigger assemblies, which are tuned to give a crisper break. They also have national match front and rear sights. The national match rear sights are hooded to protect the aperture and to shield it from reflections. The National Match front sight has a .062" blade, and has "ears" to protect the sight blade

Loaded M1A models also have national match flash suppressors. This model comes with a walnut stock and stainless barrel.

The Loaded M1A models give you just about everything that the National Match rifles do, but at a discounted price.

"I have a Loaded Match with stainless barrel, bedded stock, and Williams trigger. The gun shoots way better than I can. I had an '83 year Match I was able to shoot it much better. These are the best."
