Springfield Armory Celebrates the Legendary M1A Series with Behind-the-Scenes Video

GENESEO, IL-(Ammoland.com)- Springfield Armory has released a short video detailing the history of its M1A series, and what goes into the creation of an American icon. The M1A product line has been produced by Springfield Armory since 1974.

Not only is Springfield Armory one of the only manufacturers currently producing this civilian version of the M14 rifle, but it is also incredibly proud to continue the tradition of building such a demanding rifle.

“The careful hours, scrupulous effort, expert machining and meticulous tool work needed to complete an M1A from start to finish, make it a labor-intensive yet wholly worthwhile process,” says CEO Dennis Reese. “The end result honors the tradition and legacy of the M1A. It is truly an exceptional rifle and a beloved American firearm.”

Take a closer look behind-the-scenes at how Springfield Armory’s M1A is crafted by watching this video.

Any M1A purchase made between February 1st and May 31st, 2018 will qualify for the M1A Gear Up promotion. Submit your proof of purchase online to receive three, 20-round magazines in addition to the single 10-round magazine that ships with each rifle.

About Springfield ArmorySpringfield Armory

In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.

Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A™, 1911, 911 and SAINT® AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois. Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD® polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace. We strive to honor this responsibility as guardians of the original Springfield Armory legacy by manufacturing the highest quality firearms to enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

With an unmatched emphasis on craftsmanship, performance and exceptional customer service, our mission is to forge superior firearms and provide the tools necessary to defend individual freedoms and equality for those who embrace the rights and principles secured by our Founding Fathers.

I hope they don’t stop producing them in USA , like they are making their handguns in Croactia , stamped on the pistols see for your self look it up . It would be a shame if the parts they are using are from Croatia to build them here in the USA . Or worse move the builds to Croatia .
I refuse to purchase a product ( xd series ) marked Springfield Armory USA then below it states made in Croatia.
Will we as Americans stop buying product from other countries , and will manufactures stop making products in other countries!!!????

I’d like to watch that video but I’m trying to not watch youtube unless absolutely necessary – necessary, as in I need product information from a vendor of construction supplies I need.
That M1A video, it must be a cached video? I thought youtube purged all gun mftr’s vids?

I am the proud owner of an M1-A that I bought from Springfield armory about 10 years ago. It is a tack driver and my favorite rifle. I would love to have another one with the polymer furniture but because of cost it is sadly not to be. I fell in love with this rifle when I was issued an M-14 in 1966 at Ft. Jackson, SC. I finally got the M1-A and am very happy with it.

After I lost my sight in my right eye, I sold my national match to a young soldier from Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo. because I knew it was going to a good home. Sure miss it though. Just can’t shoot iron sights now and a really good offset scope mount was not available for it that I could find at the time. Carried the M-14 in the service and fell in love with it.
