Hello from SE Michigan

I picked up an M1A Scout a week ago and am very much looking forward to some range time with it. I used this forum to decide upon the Scout in walnut vs. the other varieties offered. This is my first high power rifle. I have handguns in .45, .357, 9mm, and a few shotguns and a couple of .22 rifles. But my desire for a quality do-it-all rifle led me to the M1A. I've shot the Garand and some other 30 calibers over the years. My dad carried an M14 in Vietnam so he is looking forward to shooting it, too. His was a non auto model like the M1A. He said most did not come with the selector switch during his deployment. I have a couple of 20 round magazines for it. Grease and cleaning supplies are on order.

Welcome back from SE Michigan. I live there in the winter north of Utica, MI. In the summer I spend a lot of time in Newberry in the U.P.. In the spring I go north to Bald Mountain during the week to shoot my M1A’s and my Sig Sauers.

Congratulations on a great purchase. I love wooden stocks. You will love shooting the M1A scout.

You will enjoy this forum. The people are fantastic. I suggest you see Tony Bens videos on YouTube on how to maintain your M1A.

Hello, I'm in Shelby Township, right on the border of Utica. I'm at Bald Mnt. quite often. Don't recall seeing another M1A at the range. If I do I'll definitely stop and say hi!

This forum is a great source of information, and everyone is willing to share. I'm sure you will enjoy.

Welcome to the forum! I'm up near Pontiac Lake.... because of that I usually shoot at Pontiac Lake Recreational Area range or up at the 200 yard range in Ortonville. If you ever head up that way keep an eye out for another M1A!
