Springfield Armory M1A Tanker Unboxed at the Gun Counter

The Springfield Armory  M1A is the civilian version of the venerable M14 rifle used by our military since the late 50s. New for 2019, Springfield released the M1A Tanker inspired by the “Tanker” Garand rifles of late WWII. The shortened barrel makes the Tanker easier to maneuver in tight spaces while retaining the firepower of the .308 WIN cartridge. The M1A Tanker is the same size as the famous SOCOM 16 but sports a vintage walnut stock that pays homage to those who carried Springfield Armory rifles into battle. It comes with one 10-round steel magazine, a soft rifle case, and owner’s manual.

  1. That thing must kick like a Missouri Mule.

    1. You could recover from this kick though.....:)

    2. The recoil on mine is very tolerable. It's the standard 22" barrel with the flash suppressor. And so far, the anti-gun politicians don't consider it an "assault weapon". I suppose that's because of its conventional appearance and that it typically ships with a 10 rd mag. --Ron W

  2. I have my sights now on getting one! That is a cool weapon.
