What can I say... Springfield Armory is one hell of a company. I have read many great things about their customer service, and I finally got to experience it, and they met all the hype.

My gun was having constant inertia feeds, and also another failure where the slide would lock back with one live round sitting loose atop the follower, so I called up Springfield and described my problems. They sent me an email with a prepaid fedex packing slip which I had to print, and I sent my gun in on the 27th of November, a tuesday. They paid for shipping both ways.

I got my gun back today, the 5th of December, Wednesday. I only spent 8 days without my 1911.

Haven't fired it yet, as i'm broke and penniless, but here's what they did to it:

Replaced the extractor
Reamed chamber
Replaced the safety spring and plunger assembly
Test fired- no malfunctions

Can't wait to get another job and then put a crap ton of rounds through it!

Whats funny, and what gun control nuts like to ignore, is the fact that a Kentucky Long Rifle then was the equivalent of a Barrett 50 caliber now.

There is a guy at work that says he has a full-auto AK-47, legal, because he has a class III license. Says it only cost him $1,800 and $300 for the "stamped" license.

...not sure how to reply to his cool story. I suppose I will just let it go.

If he is an FFL dealer he can get a dealer sample for cheap.

$1,800 for a full-auto AK-47? They are all grandfathered right? I don't know, I could probably sell my semi-auto for that amount with all the panic Grin

I thought a Class III stamp was only $200, so sounds about right. I dont know about the price of the gun though.

The stamp is $200, but the price of the gun is incredibly low. $18,000 is a more believable figure.

Dealer post samples are cheap as fuck, relatively. These are not available to transfer to an individual as they are made after 86, so you don't get the inflated price due to limited supply. He could be a class 3 FFL, as he claims.

Do you have a clean criminal history? Then yes. You need to have the approval of your local sheriff though, or if he is uncooperative you can also go through the process of establishing a NFA Trust (lawyer gets involved).

Cool. Is that an M1A Scout on the right?


I bought this back in November but forgot to post it. This is my Springfield Armory M1A National Match.



I now have a couple Check-Mate Industries 20 round mags for it as well as the 10 round one shown, plus I also have a Springfield leather sling for it now. The only thing I need is some good brass cased ammo.

My wife's cousin and I went out to a long range shooting competition at a place called Rayner's Range a couple weekends ago. The targets ranged from 235 yards up to 950 yards. They have a 1000 yard target, but the conditions were crappy so they didnt include it in the competition. I shot open sites, so I didnt do too well compared to the others with scopes but I was super pumped with my hits. I had 2 hits at 235 yards, 3 hits at 400 and 2 hits at 500.

I'll try to get some up to date pictures of the M1A and some video from the shoot.

very nice M1A! I hear those NM models are super nice.

And it's not an M1A scout, it's an M1A SOCOM II, but the tacticool factory stock with the rails has been removed and replaced with a standard wood stock. It looks super nice in this configuration, and I too prefer wood and steel on guns haha. Sure looks badass with the 16.25" barrel and wood stock.
