Our Assessment: If you need a reason to own a M1A from Springfield Armory, here’s three: iconic lineage, reliability, and power. The M1 Garand became the workhorse of the American military during WWII and it earned a place of honor and prestige in the history books. The Garand was replaced by a souped up version with a detachable box magazine: the M14. The traditional wood-and-steel combat rifle design would only remain a battlefield staple for a few more years before the M16 came knocking. Still, the M14 served as a marksman rifle for the US military and would earn its own following of diehard fans thanks to its reliability in the field and the power behind the projectiles. This rifle’s polymer stock stands up to anything you’d put this rifle through better than traditional wood stocks, which means you’ll have a great gun for range work, hunting, or home defense. Whether you’re shooting for accuracy and you need a firearm to help stock your freezer with game or give some protection against things that go bump in the night, the M1A is a sturdy, tried-and-tested design that belongs in everyone’s collection.
