rifle sale

Years ago my dream rifle was an M1A. I ended up with an AR-10 scratching that 30-caliber semi-automatic rifle itch. But the M1As are still respectable rifles. I was the spotter in the course he mentions below, and can vouch for the shots he claims.

That is also my handwriting in the data book where I logged the shots as he made them. You don’t often get a rifle with every shot written into a data book… warm, cold, 100 yards, 200 yards, 300 yards … 1,000 yards.

While you might not shoot exactly like he did, you can be darn close simply copying the scope settings we put into that book. I notice he includes the ammo used for that course. I think this setup can serve someone quite well.

I’m posting my M1a Super battle rifle chambered in .308 today because the rifle is just not the right fit for me.

I recently Took this rifle with 0 shots fired through it to Sniper Central’s beginners sniper class. During that 4 day time I achieved a cold bore shot @ 400 yrds with a 1/2 MOA accuracy (that is a 2″ circle @ 400 yrds).

I also shot this rifle to 1000k Yrds and consistently hit a 30″ X 18″ silhouette (human sized) This is a beast rifle and is going to make the new owner Very , very happy. Its tough and will be an awesome gun for years to come. The ability to put far more lead down range VS. a bolt gun is a must have. Has plenty of power and accuracy for most shooters. You can open it up and rapid fire if the situation arises.

I’m asking $2,950

The total cost for parts, shipping and assembly
came in around $4,500.
