    California model comes with a muzzlebrake rather than a flash-hider.

    Are these worth the money? I have always liked them, but might now be at a point where I can actually afford one.

    An M1a is one of the few decent rifles you can still buy in CA. That alone makes them worth the money.

    Go to a gunstore and check them out. Hell, I'd buy one if I had $1500.00 kicking around

    and even then, they automatically send out a distress call to the lawyer of the guy that shot you, so that he can go ahead and start the suit against you.

    and even then, they won't fire unless you are running away from the turd burglar that shot you first.

    and crying while you do it, because you're about to let loose a burst of Noise Pollution upon Mother Earth, and it might scare off endangered species, or otherwise offend someone of another race, creed, nationality, religion, sexual preferrence, gender, planet, diet, or plane of consciousness.

    and simoultaneously calling the ACLU, which they have on speed dial in their cell phones, to complain about the injustice that has been committed against them by the capitalist, corporate, christian, conservative, pigs.

    The M1A, whether CA legal or not, is one of the better battle rifles out there and is said to be a hoot to shoot.

    The best endorsement that I have head for one game from my local gunstore owner (and a retired marine corp major) . He said that of all the rifles he has had, the M1A was the rifle that he enjoyed shooting the most and the one he uses the most is the low end "rack grade" M1A.
