New M1A (photos)

Well I finally got to take home my first M1A tonight, and took some time to clean it before it goes to the range with me tomorrow after work. It's a Springfield Loaded (Cali edition, bleh ... well it's worth the weather, and location).

This is my 4th firearm (Sig 226 Blackwater, S&W Model 41, Ruger 10/22 USST) and was purchased after a suggestion from a fellow M14 owner I rented and shot a M1A standard at my local range. Fell in love (more fun than his AR-15) and here I am...

Remember, focus on the front sight not the rear!

Very nice pics of a very nice stick. Wish I could take pics like that. The detail is awesome.
BTW...... M14/M1A rifles are VERY addictive.

Thats an odd rear sight....not like the one on my loaded model?

Also, What's with the 3 digit serial number?

Pretty cool!

I suspect the last three digits of the serial number are obscured for the purpose of the photograph. 178 are then the first three digits of the six digit serial number.
