Oh nice M1A's! Very similar to the M14. I believe the older M1A's were made with the M14 receivers? Both awesome rifles. Very nice pictures Tgirlamc. I had a friend (who is no longer with us) that had the M1A. He had a lot of trouble with it jamming. If a may ask, how well do yours function? My friend may have just got a lemon?

Awesome thread Devlyn
It's nice having some fun with this and getting away from the TG stuff.

 I still have my Sheridan Silver Streak 5 mm that I bought when I think I was about 10 and spent $70 for it which is a heck of a lot of money when your 10. It's still works great to this day after 46 years I just love the Beeman lathe turned PowerPoint pellets that fly very true just have to get the trajectory right for anything that's 50 yards or farther. Just remember keep one pump it during storage as recommened by the manufacturer.
It still works great for me after all these years and it's a lot of fun plinking with when you don't want the
 .22  or anything larger.


Thanks for your very cool thread Devlyn

I've always said we may be transgender, but we're still normal people who do normal things.  :)

Hugs, Devlyn

Hi Donica!...

Yes!... The early M1As were the best and used all original GI parts and often the receivers as well if I remember correctly... later the quality became a bit more hit and miss and no one wanted to talk about where the parts were sourced!... There is a company called LRB in NY that assembles still with GI Parts on original spec forged receivers and they cost considerably more than the Springfields go for.... Really nice though!!!!

http://www.lrbarms.com/

I was lucky with the Springfields I bought... never any issues with jamming except a few issues related to magazines.... aftermarket (non GI ones) were not always the best and plus, in CA we have the 10rd thing so, GI mags were not available unless grandfathered in before the 1st ban!


Colleen!!...Thanks Sister, I am a sucker for nice optics.... I will attach a few more pics here of some juicy optics!

I like guns too. I have been teaching my young son's to shoot. They are learning with a non- lethal scoped air rifle until they are good enough to bag a hog or buffalo with a .308 callibre.
 What a thread!
