New guy

Hey everyone from Arizona. I just rescued an M1A from a pawn shop. Saw that it was an earlier serial # and picked it up cheap! I couldn't believe it. I'm trying to find out some information about it. Serial is 61849. I emailed Springfield and am awaiting a response. Judging by the other serial thread I placed its birth around the early 90's.

Great decision in registering here and most definite you came to the right place to learn more about the M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition, welcome on board and enjoy the site and post often Gabeone2000, neighbor. Plus you can just call Springfield and they will tell you the same thing as an eMail.

Yes you are right about the date. That number would be a preban in the late 90's/early 1991. dozier

Thanks everyone! Glad to here I found a good one. Haven't heard from Springfield so most likely will be calling them. I don't want to make anyone jealous about pricing but i picked it up for a grand. Young guy was selling it for 1500 and I knew he didn't know much about it. do I offered less and he took it! With a nice alluminum case as well.
