Springfield Armory M25 tactical rifle

This Springfield Armory M25 rifle is dedicated to Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, the Marine Corps sniper who held the record for the most confirmed kills (93) until 2010. His longest shot was at 2500 yards. That's 1.4 miles! (The longest shot made by a military sniper is now 2,707 yards, by a British sniper in Afghanistan in 2009).

The M25 White Feather M1A uses the Springfield Armory threaded rear-lugged receiver found on the Super Match models, as well as the standard M14 magazine. It has a low-profile custom muzzle brake, and a 1:10 twist Krieger carbon heavy match barrel.

Springfield Armory has an agreement with the estate of Carlos Hathcock to produce the rifles that bear a stamping of his signature, along with his trademark "White Feather" logo. The M25 rifles aren't just tribute guns, though: they shoot as well as the rifles used by Carlos Hathcock.

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.

Primary use: target shooting

"Excellent supermatch accuracy of approximately 1/3 MOA - getting 1/2" 3-shot groups at 200 yards without fail, and 1" groups at 300 yards. I was prepared to be disappointed, because I've seen several online reviews saying they don't stack up to custom M1A builds, but this simply is not true based upon my experience. I have an M1A National Match that I had bedded and blueprinted, and the M25 outshoots it by almost double. I suspect some of the nay-sayers never figured out that the 1/10 twist rate on this gun requires 175-180 grain bullets for optimal accuracy. One of my favorite 308's of all time - and I've owned some very, very collectable 308's."

"I went out with a freind who had bought a Springfield White Feather M25 Rifle It shot very nice and was very tight. It was a very accurate weapon. As a Ex Amry Sniper I was used to shooting the M21's which is also a excellent weapon, but the White Feather rifle was a step up from what I was used too."
