Sounds like a M1A-A1 Bush model. It should have a flash suppressor and will likely not have the bayonet lug.

jrsaw2000, the free Online Edition of M14 Rifle History and Development goes into the history of commercial M14 rifles fairly well. See Part 2 of that document at www.imageseek.com/m1a

Different, I have another one for the list. SA Select Fire Model S/N 21499 built 3/82.

As soon as I get the form 4 back I give you guys a range report and photos. Nice thing is I know it's only two previous owners.

Last week I purchased an M1A used. Standard (non-lugged receiver) with medium weight SS barrel marked NM.308SS, NM op-rod spring guide, and reemed flash suppressor. The good folks at SA Customer Service tell me this:

"Serial# 106880 was manufactured 10/97 standard m1a part# ma9806."

It now lives in a very nice laminated Fajen stock.

STD M1A SN 028210 with Geneseo IL, big NM stamped on the barrel. USGI wood stock. Looks like from the SN listings its 10/83 or most likely 11/83

Your RRR marked bolt is subject to the 1987 Springfield Armory, Inc. recall. I suggest giving www.springfield-armory.com a phone call this Monday. While on the phone ask Customer Service when your rifle was born. HTH

Different.

On the serial number list is posted (038650 04/87 select fire model) Should this be 4/86? I do not believe Springfield made any Select-fire guns after 5/86. Or at least none registered to individuals.
