Long time lurker with 1st M1A

Hello folks! Greetings from sunny Colorado. I've been lurking on here for the past few years, but this is my first post. Picked up this M1A at a LGS back in January to fill the last gap in my USGI collection (Krag thru "M14"). Also shown is the build sheet that came with the rifle. I'm one to buy the gun, not the story, but the sum of these parts make up one fine rifle. Perhaps some experts here can shed some light on this build and armorer. Unfortunately no actual receipts came with it to confirm its origin story. Haven't stretched its legs yet, but planning on it once we regain some normalcy. Cheers!

Since it is a Navy build, it has to shoot good. Good looking rifle. Welcome to our world.

You should come to the Boulder Rifle club. We do a reduced course NRA 88 round course there.

Maybe then I won't be the only one with a m14 on the line.

Thanks from stoky

Brycom,
I just might do that. Haven't been to the Boulder club in years. Used to hit public range days with my M1. A decade ago I almost put my name on the list for membership, but didn't think I'd still be in the area. Yet here I am still. Oh well. Hindsight and all...
