Can't beat the Springfield's for a reliable, well-made weapon. I have the M1A loaded in 308 set up with the Bassett machine scope mount and Nikon P-308 on top. what a shooter! Also have two Range Officers in 9mm and 45acp, a 1911 V-10 Ultra Compact in 45acp that I carry everyday, and a plain jane GI 1911 in 45acp. Love em all! Great site here, lots of topics and info. Hope to get questions answered and answer any I can.
