    $ 1,700 for a customized sub MOA Springfield Armory "Loaded" stainless medium weight Douglas barrel version. Bought new in 2013.
    Low round count, approx 1000 rounds.

    Mature owned NEVER "mag dumped" in fact we only shot it from a bench for accuracy every round was hand inserted 1 shot at a time as a single shot target rifle.

    Note: M1A's and 308's in general can go to up to 6, 7 8 and even 10 thousand rounds without a burned out throat !

    New Sighttron 6.5 x 24 x 50 S III with tiny target dot reticle , made in Japan of all Japanese material and glass. Sightron glass comes from the famous L O W / Light Optic Works the finest Japanese glass which also supplies Lupold's top of the line gold ring scopes & spotting scopes some Nighforce scopes, and the top of the line Nikon Monarch series scope. Sighttron as a life time guarantee. ( link to web site ) Sightron Riflescopes SIII Series SIIISS624X50LRMOA (http://info.sightron.com/Riflescopes/SIII-Series/SIIISS624X50LRMOA/) This scope has a generous eye box at 24 highest power,all around super clear edge to edge, great light gathering, crisp real imaging , perfect return to zero, plenty of internal "come up" for cal 308 to 1000 yards, on par with scopes that cost twice as much

    ( Google Sighttron reviews , no one trashes the quality of these scopes )

    Made in a USA Texas Bassett machine low profile scope mount ( holds a perfect zero ) ( see link ) Bassett M14/M1A Scope Mounts (http://www.bassettmachine.com/)

    Comes with Vortex scope bubble level.

    Stock, on the stock we cut a "crescent" shape and over 1 inch off of the rubber but pad due to 1) the fact that the Bassett mount does not allow the scope to be slid back to a closer position and the stock's length of pull is also too long for me and most of my friends, if You don't like it then ProMag the makers of the stock will charge You about 25 for the original un-altered butt pad but I know You will like it just the way it is as about 10 people have been behind my M1A and they all like the length of pull as we have made the crescent cut :p

    Upgrades also include: The obvious USA made Archangel stock, we installed it "before" Springfield Armory started to install then in their own rifles, they caught on because the average M1A wood stock tends to shrink & expand and keep the rifle from holding consistent tite groups unless extensive bedding is done. The Archangel is solid as a bedding job the rifles receiver does NOT move even in the slightest. We added a non Harris no name reproduction "long" bi pod.

    Internal upgrades are David Tubb's Chrome Silicon OP rod spring and Hammer spring ( see link )
    Tubb Precision CS M1A/M14 Op-Rod & Hammer Spring set (http://www.davidtubb.com/chromesilicon-m1a)

    Sadlak National Match OP rod spring guide. ( see link )
    Spring Guide M14/M1A, Sadlak Industries (http://www.sadlak.com/si_rifle_parts_sg.html)

    Also added a wide blade polished brass trigger shoe for a better smooth "flat" trigger pull.

    I took it to Ted Brown for custom trigger work. Ted is a world renown M14 / M1A master rifle smith - specialist , He worked on the trigger for a 2nd stage clean break & light pull to about about a 3rd less than the original National Match trigger. Ted literately lives right down the road from me, He posts a column on www.M14Forum.com which is also thee #1 resource for M1A information I highly suggest You join M14Forum.

    Comes with 8 magazines, one 25 round, five 20 round Checkmate USA mags, one 10 round and one *5 round for legal deer *hunting both 10 & 5 are Springfield Armory.

    All magazines function just fine, a few are a tite fit which need sanding on the sides to loosen the overly tight fit in the ArchAngel stock.

    We worked up a load 155.5 Berger full bore target and 155 VLD-H load with 42 grains a H-4895 that ( when the wind is zero ) it constantly gives us five shot 1/2 MOA 100 yard groups and sometimes 2 shot hole through hole and 3 shot clover leafs.

    We did not "unitize" the gas system as most M1A owners do nor did we go with an after market gas piston because the accuracy of this rifle is good enough for me.:)

    With the 168 SMK's & 42 grains of H-4895 ( new box of Match Kin gbulllets included ) at 600 yards I'm always in the black when the wind is under 5mph with a couple 10X & lots of 8 & 9's for what ever good that means lol.

    Comes with about 500 brass ( about 13 pounds ) most are clean Lake City with 1 or 2 firings. The rest are a mix of Hornady Match , Norma Match and some Remington.

    Also comes with about 100 loaded rounds of 150grain Sierra Hunter soft point "hunting" reloads using 42 grains of 4895 ( pictured in the green plastic ammo box )

    Also comes with about 50 count of LC mil spec orange "tracer" ball and a few black tip Armor Piercing rounds.

    Also come with 25 round of mil spec 147 gr ball, also comes with 20 round of 110 gr factory custom "Varmagedon"

    Plus approx 100 more rounds of mixed types of reloaded 4895 powder soft point hunting rounds of varying bullet weight .

    Plus some 155 VLD's & 168 SMK's loaded up.

    Plus a full box of 168 grain Hornady Custom Competition bullets, plus a full box of Sierra 175 Match Kings, a full box of rare pre Match King Sierra International target 168 grain match bullets cerca 1960's plus a half box of of Berger 168 gr VLD Hunting, plus a half box of Sierra 165 BTHP.

    Comes with a Dillon brand "drop in" - "go or no go" S A M E spec case - size gauge, the fastest way to check Your brass for size and length, just drop an empty shot brass into it and it if fits its good to re load if not then it will need either an obvious re-sizing or trim or both.

    Plus a few RCBS range ammo boxes and one small green belt box for Your custom loads.

    Plus one new un-opened jug of H-4895, plus one half full jug of H-4895, plus one new un-opened jug of 4074 which is also good for the M1A gas - pressure range, plus one full jug of Trail Boss which is perfect for making sub sonic loads ( see YouTube link )

    Plus a set of RCBS small base full length dies > small base - full length is thee ONLY die You should use on a semi auto 308

    Basically EVERYTHING You see in the pictures for $1,700

    I am not breaking anything up , no parting out, it's everything or nothing ;)

    You pay for the shipping of all the brass - ammo - powder etc.... I will go to UPS to weigh it and get You an exact total shipping cost

    FFL to FFL only , I use Mark Skaggs ( see link ) Mark Skaggs Gunsmithing (http://www.markskaggsgunsmithing.com/) send money order or bank counter check to Mark 1st and I will ship it out immediately to Your FFL.

    NOTE: I just sold a Star FireStar .45 and the buyer in WA is happy with the way I treated Him, also last month I sold my Dan Wesson 44 mag here about 2 months ( check my post - listing ) and I sold a high collectors grade 45-70 about 2 years ago here, the buyer / buyers is / are very happy with the guns, the honest description and the speed in which we shipped it to them IMG_20160718_130939789.jpg

    My phone # is 541-659-2565, call and leave a message or text I will get right back to You.....cheers Steve :)

    I live just down the street from Mark Skaggs out in the Applegate in extreme southern Oregon

    I hope this answered Your question and peaked Your interest in a bad bubblegum M1A in perfect working - shooting condition Thank You for reading IMG_20160718_131006150_HDR.jpg IMG_20160718_131037986_HDR.jpg IMG_20160718_131057086.jpg IMG_20160718_131347804.jpg IMG_20160718_132014253.jpg IMG_20160718_132510787.jpg IMG_20160718_134220290.jpg IMG_20160718_133820506.jpg IMG_20160718_133631845.jpg IMG_20160718_133411593.jpg IMG_20160718_133117770.jpg IMG_20160718_133105669.jpg IMG_20160718_133053965.jpg IMG_20160718_133048110.jpg

    Yuppers Bill, My very experienced competition bench rest buddy has helped me work up super accurate loads in his Frankenstein ammo crafting lab LOL :p On a few rare early morning zero wind occasions He ( Not me lol ) He got a few 1/4 MOA groups :D .

    The 308 is a super easy round to re-load for any rifle bolt or semi auto .

    Loading for the semi auto gives You limited easy parameters to work with and does not require all the rocket science that my buddies 6BR type bolt rifles need in order to "compete".

    In fact its just a matter of staying within the gas pressure range the M1A needs to function properly and keeping the brass in good shape by inspection and how many X;s You re use the brass and staying fully resized and trimmed, basically its a matter of staying withing the combined over all length to be able to feed from the magazine all the while finding a sweet spot in the bullet weight - brand and seating depth, and powder charge.

    The rock solid stock and hand tuned ammo turned a sloppy yet 100% reliable battle type weapon into a mid range counter sniper, true sniper rifle that feeds a LOT of ammo lol :cool:

    FYI Here is the basics of reloading for the M1A

    I switched to the Sighttron from a lessor quality Nikon 18 power M-308 scope, and the new Sighttron had made a HUGE difference on the 600 yard range, the reticle 'dot' is real small but easy to see and the eye box is at the highest power setting not as super sensitive as the Nikon and so it's easy to get on target at long range and not have to worry about loosing the target due to black out, also the Nikon M-308 had a 'hazy' look to it on 18, but the Sighttron has a much more clear view at 24 power its a true long range scope :). ...cheers

    SHIPPING COST: Example: I just when to UPS today and weighed the rifle and all, and so for UPS ship the rifle to Olympia WA from Medford OR it will be $42 it will weight 19lb's when placed into a plastic gun case and then boxed up = $42.

    To ship all the live ammo to the same city in WA costs..................... = $44

    To ship the brass and reloading supplies plus magazines.................. = $ 42

    SHIPPING TOTAL = $129.

    NOTE: UPS will NOT allow me a civilian to ship gun powder even if it is new un-opened cans of
    smokeless powder like what I have in the ad, they require anyone who is "sending" powder to have a Hazmat license ! :(

    I've been looking at getting a M1. Maybe after I sell my Sig legion. Not sure what i would do with all that brass, powder, and reloading equipment since i dont reload. Great looking rifle by the way.
