I have read somewhere that Springfield offered the M1a in several different calibers at one point. Perhaps your rifle is one of those?

Does anyone have an idea of what I should sell it for? Or any good offers.

I know this is an old post, but hearing about an M1A in .243 sparked my interest. It looks like they are selling for $1300 and up. Here's one on arms List:
