Post SA, Inc. M1A serial number born on date database (000001 - 100000)

Moderator, could we get this thread made as a sticky?

M14/M1A fans, let's put together a database of the dates M1A rifles were assembled at the factory. This information will go into the book M14 Rifle History and Development

Here's the requirements:

1) List the M1A serial number and the factory headspace tag date or the month and year SA, Inc. Customer Service says it was built.
2) You personally have to have read the serial number and date off the factory headspace tag or you personally corresponded with the Customer Service Department. No second hand reports.

I'll start. These two serial numbers and assembly dates are from the factory headspace tags:

052122 - 11/13/89
134855 - 07/27/01

TIA,

Different

Phil, any chance 097333 is 05/96? I spoke with a former employee at Valley Ordnance who kept track of receiver serial numbers shipped from them to SA, Inc. M1A serial number 097726 shipped from VO to SA, Inc. on May 19, 1996.

Thanks, Phil. I'm going to consider this particular Customer Service Department response a historical inquiry "flier" so to speak. I've put 097333 down as 05/96. Mr. Brezinski's serial number records are unquestionable prima facie historical documentation as he was the shop foreman at Valley Ordnance from 1993 to 1996. I asked Al at LEAST three times to slowly and deliberately annunciate the very last complete M1A receiver serial number shipped to Geneseo, IL. He gave the same answer each time, 097726. There's just no way Valley Ordance stamped 097333 in May, 1995 and 097726 in May, 1996.

Lexi,



I did indeed buy this rifle, it is New in Box. Never fired, still had the SA Tag on the trigger, with all the papers, including the Warranty Card.



My question, does the Lifetime Warranty Apply to me? No problems, just wondering.



Thanks, and have a great weekend.

Good Afternoon!

The serial number you gave me, 0797XX, is in deed a pre-ban model, manufactured in April of 1994 prior to the September 1994 ban date. Hope this helps!

Lexi, the one you helped me with before is gone, here's another.

Was considering buying a used M1A, serial number 0797XX



A lady on the phone told me it was a pre-ban, manufactured May 1994. Would you please confirm this back to me via e-mail?



Thank you.
