New M1A owner

Hello guys I am a new M1A owner from CA. Ive wanted one for since the first time i seen Full Metal Jacket. Probably 25 years! Managed to trade for 2 this last month! A standard and SOCOM. they started off as black nylon stocks and i changed the over to some USGI wood stocks from treeline. Im stoked to finally get my own! Tons of knowledge on this site and I have shimmed my standard and put sadlak NM spring guides in both.

Welcome aboard. Now all you need is a scout and you'll have whole set. Don't worry, they breed like rabbits and you'll have more before you know it.

Welcome to the forum from Virginia. When I got my first I couldn't decide which I wanted so I started off getting 2 as well. Now 2 years later I have 3 and a couple Garands as well. Shoot and enjoy.

Welcome on board Dennis, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great week.

Welcome.
Haven't been able to get away from the M14 since the Marine Corps first put one in my hands in January of 1966.

Welcome from FL! Nice wood and steel there. This is random, but what is that piece on front of the SOCOM? By the gas system?
