Barrel has NM .308 (top between gas cylinder and FS) find no other markings. Got the odd Flash Suppressor too.
Trigger Grp has 7267030-HR-N stamped
Rear Sight Elevation knob has an "M"
Op Rod Spring Guide is slotted with the KMT symbol
I also got a 20 rnd mag thatís marked with a W (Winchester)
It arrived in a Black composite stock which appears much different (no metal) than my 09 Green Standard, although I promptly switched it over to my Big Red Birch.
My rifle also has the exact same flash suprressor on it. That is the first thing that I noticed and made me begin to question the authenticity of rilfe. I will have to look for other markings like you mentioned.
BTW M4FNG in the picture of your sight, what is that with the letter A marked on it? I don't believe my rifle has anything like that on it.
ksapp82, I just got a PM back from Different, said that this is likely a Loaded model, the Front Sight is marked NM and the suppressor is a CA legal style (no bayonet lug)
Im now about 99% that it's a Loaded model, so it appears I got a really good deal on it
Shipping tag: 091312
Head Spaced: 1.632
Thanks for all the research/work.
I sent Patti at SA a email inquiring about whether this rifle is plain standard or has any Match parts. The barrel is not stamped NM. I always thought it was just standard, but it came with the "Loaded" coupon/package, when purchased.
EDIT: Here is the info from the reply I received from SA
M1A rifle serial number 110889 was manufactured as model number MA9202 in April of 1998.
This model would have come equipped with a new walnut stock, National Match tuned trigger assembly, National Match medium weight barrel, and a National Match flash suppressor.
I am so glad I found this board.

Thanks for the information...She was very helpful and quick to respond.
My rifle 1678## is the loaded package with a black stock and carbon barrel. It would have come equipped with a NM medium weight barrel, NM tuned trigger assembly, and NM non-hooded sights. It would also have come with a muzzle break stabilizer instead of a flash suppressor to make it California legal. Manufactured October 2004.
