Spingfield Armory has put out another cool video giving us a brief look behind the scenes. The first video details Springfield’s expert pistolsmiths working on custom 1911s. This latest one, embedded above, showcases the creation of the iconic M1A rifle.
“The M1A product line has been produced by Springfield Armory since 1974,” stated the Illinois-based company. “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,” said Springfield Armory 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.”
