Since their introduction, Springfield Armory’s MIA Series have been in the hands of elite tactical teams, snipers and backcountry hunters. Their website valiantly states it can “handle any mission, any condition, any foe, at any range.”
Now, they’ve introduced a new element to the platform that makes us feel all giddy inside.
Springfield Armory announced that skilled marksmen can now get unmatched M1A performance loaded in 6.5 Creedmoor.
The Creedmoor round has become a real big hit for its low recoil, high muzzle velocity, and extreme long-range accuracy.
Below is an excerpt from Spingfield’s website:
“The M1A’s National Match Grade, 22-inch medium weight stainless steel barrel provides a long sight radius for outstanding iron sight accuracy, with a 4-groove 1:8 right hand twist and shot-steadying muzzle brake to put rounds right where intended.
The NM Grade .062 post front sight is paired with a NM Grade non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight that’s ideal for distant targets and adjustable for ½ MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation. The 2-stage trigger is National Match tuned to 4.5 – 5 pounds, for a crisp, confident pull.
The new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A is a “true 1000-yard rifle” that delivers a level of shooting satisfaction few rifles can match, especially when paired with an SA scope mount and your optic of choice.”
With a length of 45 to 46.24 inches and an unloaded weight of 11.4 pounds, the new M1A boasts:
- M1A’s National Match Grade, 22-inch medium-weight stainless-steel barrel
- A 4-groove 1:8 twist and shot-steadying muzzle brake
- National Match Grade .062 post front sight paired with a National Match Grade non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight; adjustable for 1/2 MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation.
- A 2-stage trigger which is National Match tuned to 4.5 – 5 pounds, for a crisp, confident pull.
