I have an M1A Socom 16. It has been a good gun but I was suspicious of cheap parts so I sent it back to Fulton Armory for an inspection. The gas system was out of spec and needed to be replaced, the extractor was cut wrong and needed to be replaced, and the chamber needed to be polished. It has been very reliable so far but since I got into the 6.8 I hardly ever shoot it. It's a good gun but with LWRC making a gas piston .308 AR this year (still a few months out for release) I think I would wait for one. They are most likely going to be around $2500.00 or more :cry:

I had an M1A loaded. it was fantastic, 5 rounds 100yd covered with a nickle. never had a weapon shoot so well. had to sell it needed the money, never lost a dime on it. no miss feeds, loved all types of ammo. but now I am back to my first love, AR 15 with the proper round 6.8 you have to love our special forces going the extra mile and haveing this round developed for them so they can have more 1 shot kills at longer ranges and less weight than an M1A. love that black gun

For M1 / M14's Fulton Armory is the only place I would trust that has a big name. They are only about 2.0 hrs from where I live. Not really setup for retail. If your polite they will usually give you a tour.
