I have a loaded standard M1a with the factory 6x40 Springfield scope. Heard nothing but bad news about this optic. Have not shot the rifle enough at this point to have any feelings about the scope. Seems fine to me. I am looking for a mid range priced tactical scope for this rifle.Should I go with a fixed or variable? Range will be from 100 to 600 yards. Thank Guys.

As far as mid priced tactical scopes I think the pick of the litter is the IOR 6x42 tactical. Also a close second is Super Sniper 10x. When you start talking about variable power the Burris Extreme Tactical line seems to offer a lot for the money but they dont have the long history of tactical use that Leupold does and some of the Mark 4 Tactical PR scopes are a lot less $ than the rest of their tacticals so you need to compare several lines the PR 4.5-14 is rather a nice scope.

If you have not found any problem with what you  have I probably wouldn't be in a big hurry to replace it unless you have something tactical comming up that requires a tried and proven system, in which case price is no object.  I really liked an aimpoint on my M1a and was not happy with other optics  due to the stock not giving a good cheekweld. 

 

( Use the search feature this topic has been discussed at length.)

 

My M1a seems to be about a 2moa gun with iron sights so that's what I use.

The rifle with the scope package was such a good deal I feel compelled to give her good optics. I bought the SS 10X. All you guys always seem to come back to the SS scopes and that really makes me believe they are all they are talked about. Bet I made the right chooice. Thanks for the reply and thanks for the recommendation..Boug

Super Sniper!!

 

My dream is to get a loaded M1A this year.

 

tbougie, do you recommend the Springfield or another brand??

The Super Match Springfield I shot a few weeks ago was NICE!!

Pretty fair accuracy using the factory peep sights and some junky S. African 7.62 ammo.

AR's being unavailable makes getting an m1a that much eaisier here in californicrap. primarily because of the stupid people [of course]. IOR 4x24 is my choice.

I would call GAPrecision and have them build one as they build them for the Marine Corp snipers. Last time I was at their shop they had about 15 of them in progress but what they told me is they can get them down to about a 1 moa gun and their custom AR10 is much more accurate.

I found this on the used gun rack in Cabelas library for $1349 with the factory government scope package. Gun is 2 1/2 years old. no wear anywhere. Never had been really shot. I love it.You will spend a couple of grand buying one from Springfield. I have some M1 Garands and this just rounds out the collection. Love the AR's too.
