Hit the fun shows in the area last weekend and can't say I was thrilled with the pickings. As I was getting ready to leave the Goodman show in Sharonville Ohio, I met a nice Navy vet, just a bit older than me. He had some neat toys including a .45 Kris that while very cool I could not justify buying but the other gun was a deal in my view.

What he had was a like new Springfield Armory M1A but he had decked her out with a Troy M14 MCS Package A2 Stock. Those stocks with the rail are $850. He had a military surplus bipod on her and a not so special but nice Center Point 4x16 illuminated scope. He also had the original stock, sights, one 20 round and one five round hunting mag, CAA foregrip, cheek pad with a pair of velcro ammo saddles and a factory SA scope mount worth $130. Total tariff for all was less than the $2400 standard model a dealer had on his table in a plastic factory stock. She was quite a bargain on the current market and I so admire the Springfields, so she came home with me. Now to get a decent day where I can shoot it.
