Springfield Armory’s Rob Leatham demonstrates the Scout Squad M1-A.
Would've love to watch this but can't bring it up on iPhone.
Joe, You didn't miss much. Rob loaded ten rounds fired them and they said "Boy that was a lot of fun" end of video.
I have loved the M14 family since basic training but have never been able to afford a decent "M1A". If I had to go to war again I would rather have one M14 than a foot locker full of M16s.
Go to budsgunshop.com and see what you can purchase for your $$$. I have made two rifle and two semi-auto hand guns purchase from budsgunshop.com in Lexington,KY this year already. Try them out?
I know what you are saying about the M14, and that is my choice of rifle to have in any combat. I carried one from 1962 till 1965 in the US Army. The cost is way over what I would spend on a semi-auto rifle. I have purchased a Remington 750 30-06 / 22inch barrel, black stock about 7lb with out the magazine. I have 2 Triple K 10round magazines with a 6x19x40 BSA scope on it. The Remington 750 from budsgunshop.com in Lexington, KY $614. This is as close to any M14 I will get in my hands. This Remington is light to carry and it has what I want in a combat rifle to shoot 800 yards. I know how fun it is to shoot two 10 round mags.
