Kurtc comes up with a lot of nice post ban SAI rifles. I'd PM him and tell him to keep his eye out for you. For the price you were going to pay for that bubba rifle you can get a nice post ban M1A for only a few more bucks!

They are out there just to got to look!

Thanks from Wasted ammo and ruhroh

Only reason I was interested was because it was a 5-line receiver... Thought maybe it would be something special. I had no idea what all the other parts were which is why I posted it to get opinions. Glad I did. Still finding my way around the M1A.

Having said that, I have already bought an M1A. It was an "as new unfired" standard, walnut stock and 800 rds of ammo. It sat around in someone's safe for 5 yrs. I field stripped it and cleaned it up and inspected it (thanks Tonyben for the vids). Will be taking it to the range to see what happens... Have plans to do some light inexpensive mods to see how far I can take it. Not in the same league as the prebans with USGI parts, but something for me to tinker with and have fun.

Thanks to all who posted here. Nice to lean on all this experience.

Thanks from KurtC and Grizzman
