SPRINGFIELD ARMORY NATIONAL MATCH M1A RIFLE, WALNUT STOCK, STAINLESS STEEL BARREL
For those who want or need superior accuracy in a military rifle, Springfield Armory offers the National Match. The National Match stainless steel barrel is air-gauged**, and slightly heavier than the standard barrel. The receiver is upgraded to include a match grade recoil spring guide and national match gas system. The front sight is a precision unit, as is the rear site, which is protected by a hood (see photos below). The trigger assembly on the National Match is fine-tuned for a crisp, clean break.
All of this is glass-bedded in the match grade American walnut stock to give outstanding out-of-the-box performance. For competitors in military rifle competitions, the Springfield Armory National Match M1A is perhaps the most popular rifle used.
**All barrels are measured with an air gauge, which is a probe that measures the uniformity of the barrel diameter from end to end. When a manufacturer says that a barrel is "air gauged", it means that the barrel diameter meets more strict specifications for diameter than standard barrels.

Springfield Armory Standard M1A Rifle Reviews:
5 out of 5
"I shoot service rifle competition and now am just .10 away from Expert. The M1A really helps. I haven't done any mods on it, but it shoots that good. You wouldn't think that the national match sight would make a lot of difference but I had a standard M1A before and the national match sight makes a lot of difference. This is my all time favorite rifle. Hands down."

"As a combat infantry Vietnam vet, I preferred the M14 over the M16. I bought a National Match more as a collector/survivalist. I love mine. I wouldn't sell it. "
