Lurking For A Couple Years But Getting Closer To Pulling The Trigger On A M1A

Hello

I have been looking to purchase an M1A for a very long time and have been lurking on this site for awhile now. I think with my tax return I can finally pick on up. I would love to build one but think that the cost might be a bit steep so with all the reading I have done and posts from other users I think I have my eye on a SAI Loaded M1A. The only thing that has me a little hesitant is the two stage trigger, that might take some getting used to. I do hope to get my hands on one soon.

P.S. Since the question of what M1A/M14 variant to purchase gets asked a lot I would think that it might be something to sticky in the forum.

I bought a loaded model with a walnut stock, it is now my favorite rifle I own. I have many others ARs, boltsguns, lever guns, etc. Nothing quite like an m14/m1a. Don't worry about the 2 stage trigger after a few mags it will grow on you. Oh yea and welcome.

Thanks from charliefrye

Every one asked the same question but it's comes in many different colors and flavors... Long range, National Match, Loaded, barn shooter for fun, SOCOM II, Bush, with scope, or just iron sights, unlimited money, just a few dollars to spend, all USGI parts or all one manufacturer, old wooden stock or newer designs stocks. To many to try an answer the question before it even arrives here NegativeSixSigma.

Welcome aboard. First one I ever got was a new Springfield standard model M1A with the black synthetic stock to familiarize myself with the basic platform. It's now my son's first M1A.

Welcome from Oregon, the Loaded is a very good start, the trigger will not be a problem for you. Some good dry fire time will help break in your trigger and let you learn your trigger as well.

My first was a loaded. Not a bad way to go for sure. Better get those taxes filed.

Welcome. My first was an SAI standard. You will not go wrong no matter what you choose. Like many of us, you may discover that one simply isn't enough.

I had a Loaded and regret selling it! I'm not dissing my current LRB but that Loaded shot like a dream.

I had a loaded and sold it. I vowed to never sell another M14/M1A again. Unless it is to fund a more rare M14/M1A. I want a Stainless steel barreled loaded in a Mcmillian stock
