The Super Match M1A rifle is Springfield Armory's top of the line M14 style rifle. It's fitted with all of the features of the National Match model, but with the addition of a lugged rear receiver.

Like the National Match models, the Super Match has an oversized operating rod guide, air-gauged national match barrel, and many other extras. ("Air gauged" means that the barrel has been inspected for uniformity of barrel diameter from end to end, and falls within tighter tolerances than do standard barrels).

The stock on the Super Match is the maximum width allowed for service rifle competition, giving you a more solid platform for resting the fore end. This rifle is made for the really serious competitor, and it delivers.

The Super Match M1A utilizes the National Match sights, which some consider to be the best service rifle sights available. The rear sight has a hood surrounding the aperture to protect it from dings, and also to keep light from hitting the aperture and degrading the sight picture. The front sight is National Match as well, and has a .062" sight blade. (See photos)

Primary use: hunting

"With the correct bullet this is one fantastic weapon. Very reliable, you can drag it through the dirt, dust, and water and it will come up ready to shoot/fire every time! A tried and proven performer in the field of battle, or on the hunt for food. Perfect for short to mid-range targets, and even good for those who know how to reach out there about a 1/2 mile with the right scope."
