Very nice rifle! The M14 and M1A types are just plain fun to shoot. Yours looks to have some character.

I tried to get my department to field a couple of M1A's to go along with our issued AR's. Had one rangemaster agree with me, but could not get any one up the chain to go for the idea. Took my Springfield Scout Squad out to a couple of range sessions to show what it could do compared to the AR. Might as well have been talking another language.

Only one other officer in the department had fired an M1A or M14. I also took my M1 Carbine out as no one else had fired one. Kind of fun to get the younger officers a little history lesson on range day.

Also took out a couple of revolvers as the majority of officers had never fired one. Makes me sad, they have only ever fired department issued weapons.

Welcome from Wisconsin.
Most guys recommend buying a cheaper model and use the money saved to buy ammo. Looks like you started off buying a top of the line rifle!!! Good find.
And let us know when #2 and #3 show up... Most of us just can't stop at one
