Fast becoming a law enforcement favorite, the M1A™ Scout Squad rifle with forward mounted optical sight base provides an excellent platform for the Aimpoint military sight. Benefits are vastly improved target acquisition and unobstructed access to the receiver mechanism.
Additional features include a quick handling 18” barrel, proprietary muzzle stabilizer and an American walnut stock. Scope and BiPod sold seperately.
I relieved the M1A from the ffl within 5 days of placing my order, super fast delivery and free shipping! The walnut stock on this rifle is gorgeous. The only issue I had was a loose castle nut on the end of the barrel that holds the sight and flash hider onto the barrel. After tightening it up and making sure my front sight was centered it was good to go. Have put 200 or so rounds through this scout squad so far with zero issues what so ever. Very accurate and soft shooting for a short barreled 308.
I waited a long time to obtain my M1A Scout. As soon as I got it home I learned to break it down & reassemble. This process was so simple and straightforward that I began timing myself...I could not wait to get this Lady to the range. 1st RANGE TIME: Every 2nd or 3rd round I experienced a dud round...huh, Was it my ammo? I went and purchased a new box of ammo at the range praying this was the fix...NOPE. Most of the dud rounds did not appear to have been touched by my Ladies firing pin. I went home so dejected because when She did fire...she was so smooth & so accurate. As always, as soon as I returned from the range, I broke down, cleaned and reassembled my weapons. I finally got to my M1A but before cleaning, I read through the manufacturers instructions front to back...nothing. Then I noticed this vintage looking manufacturers instructions that I had previously ignored. There I found “MY” problem...not hidden on page 10 or 20...my answer was front & center on page 1. Be sure & clean out the manufacturers packing grease. When I first got her I was having so much fun assembling that the only thing that I forgot to do was to give her a thorough cleaning. Kicking self in pants over & over...I spit shined this girl inside and out. 2nd RANGE TIME: No mis-fires. Zero’d the open sites effortlessly at 100 yards...after three years I still love firing this weapon. I’ve tried firing AR-10’s but they all seem so clumsy and hard kicking compared to the M1A. I’ve found my sweetheart.
I have shot other friends coveted M14/M1A rifles over the years and always wanted one`;` especially The Scout Squad The 18in barrel is more compatible with my environment than a longer barreled weapon. The versatility is on point for my needs. in the last 7-8 years and finally bought this beauty in Walnut stock! Sportsman's Outdoor's price was unbeatable, they shipped it to my FFL and 5 days after I purchased it, it was available for me to pick up.
The Iron sights are some of the best peep sights I have ever used. I am reluctant to put an optic on it, although I may so long as it will hold a zero if removed and reattached.
It is not a sub 1 MOA weapon, but it is a very consistent shooter at approx 2+ MOA. from the bench. It hits the target consistently when shooting at steel and paper silhouettes. This is completely stock, no mods and again, iron sights zeroed off a sand bag
I zeroed with Winchester 147 grain FMJ rounds and shot a small steel target consistently at 250 yards 228.6 Meters with Iron sights. I am actively seeking a longer range and really test it. I anticipate 500-600 meter consistency.
The rifle has a well balanced feel and despite the weight of its gas operated auto action, wood stock and a full 20 rd Magazine, it is a pleasure to shoulder and fire. It cycled most rds well. I had 2 malfunctions out of almost 200 rounds fired and that was likely the ammo, which was 37 yr old, berdan primed Malaysian military surplus ammo, with a dirty film on the casing. No issues with Winchester or PPU Brass. I feel confident to hunt deer or hogs at ranges out to 250 yds with Iron sights. Longer if scoped Take it from someone who has waited a long time to finally purchase. Don't waste another moment of your life without this rifle, if you don't have to. Its a joy to shoot! So Buy it, give it a name and make it yours.
Great price that can't be beat. Quick delivery to my FFL. The rifle is a joy to shoot! accurate with Iron sights and very reliable. The Walnut Stock is beautiful.
