    I've heard to many bad stories about springfields newer m1a's I wouldn't get one. I do want a M1A but I'm either going to go all out with a Fulton or just buy a Poly and do some upgrades.

    I got one about a month ago for $1200 with 3 mags.

    I haven't shot it yet but the first thing that I realized is that the gun is heavy as hell.

    Amazing that Gander Mountain gets $2k for them if everyone is selling them for $1300...but they can't keep them on the shelf.

    How does the accuracy of one of the M1A's compare to one of the PTR's? Just assume stock models on each. Also, how easy are upgrades on the two?

    stock standard m1a vs stock ptr I think the m1a would be quite a bit better. Both have decent aftermarket following but definently more M1A/M14 stuff out there. Not sure how hard the PTR is to work on, M1A isn't to bad.
