The semi-auto M1A, descended from the respected M14 rifle, represents a modern take on a classic design inspired by the revered M1 Garand rifle of World War II fame. With its detachable box magazine, excellent sights and rugged reliability, the M1A has been a favorite with shooters since its introduction in 1974. And now with these two new NBS-exclusive variants, M1A fans have some exciting new options. 

The two variants — an M1A Standard Issue and an M1A Scout Squad — feature an attractive two-tone Desert FDE finish. The barreled action’s steel features a rugged Cerakote finish, complemented by a matching two-tone FDE composite stock. Also, both rifles are equipped with an OD Green cotton sling and come with two magazines.

MSRP for the M1A Standard Issue Two-Tone Desert FDE is $1,847, while the M1A Scout Squad Two-Tone Desert FDE has an MSRP of $1,980. 

M1A Standard Issue: Two-Tone Desert FDE .308 | MA9116


M1A Scout Squad: Two-Tone Desert FDE .308 | AA9116
