A USGI M14 stock will have the cuts for the selective fire hardware, Civilian M1A stocks will not.

I do not believe I have ever seen a SAI factory built match M1A with a bedded USGI stock.

Proof "P" stamps are easily available.

Yes SAI used USGI stocks for their match rifles, before the rear lug super matches came out.

I don't like to admit I may have been wrong about the first year of Super Match production, but according to the ARNG guidelines for coaching, one should admit to making a mistake about once a week as it tends to reduce the number of attempts on the coaches life.

I reckon I'm with you Ted Brown. That rifle is kind of a rare bird, I'd never heard of a non lugged SM.

Rear lugs on factory rifles didn't appear until 1990 or 91. 65k serial number range.

Before that, a Super Match was just a National Match with a heavy barrel and stock.

Early NM and SM rifles might have a stock from any source, as long as it was sturdy enough for bedding.

1976 Super Match

I have a SAI M1A in the 5600 serial range that left the SAI factory as a Super Match, according to an email from SAI. It has regular profile bedded stock on it.

Well, this took forever, life interrupts sometimes...

Deployed again but here are some marginal quality pictures of my 1976 SM.

Also, my rifle bears a striking resemblance to the one posted here:

Serial numbers close too... Hmmm.
