The Springfield M1A is a .308 semi-automatic rifle that is a semi-automatic civilian version of the Springfield M14 rifle that the military uses. The .308 round will be able to tap out to much longer distances than the 5.56 round of the AR-15 can. Another big benefit to using a .308 semi-automatic rifle is its versatility, as it can be used to drop just about anything in North America and can also be used for tactical defensive scenarios as well.
The M1A comes in three barrel lengths: 22 inch, 18.5 inch, and 16 inch. Standard magazine capacity is twenty rounds, but ten and five round magazines are also available. The rifle is known for its accuracy and reliability, although they do fetch a higher price.
