Those M-14 rifles that were synonymous with American soldiers during Vietnam War got reincarnated as M1A rifles. These rifles are deadly accurate and even with iron sights; an expert shooter can accurately hit a target one thousand yards away. The gun is superbly engineered machine that can be used for some heavy duty long range firing with devastating effect. However, it must be mentioned, owning a M1A responsibly is absolutely essential for any right thinking individual and such a weapon should never find its way to lunatic killers that perch themselves at a height and keep firing randomly, or, enter a primary school and keep spraying bullets anywhere and everywhere they feel like.
These magnificent guns also boast of a formidable array of accessories. M1A accessories include a beautifully crafted bipod that fits in the gas chamber and perfectly complements the rugged and tough demeanor of a M1A rifle. This bipod can be used to get a steadier aim while lying down and is often considered a must for those that venture out in rural areas for game hunting.
Another equally stunning M1A accessory is sling made either of leather or canvas that add that extra machismo to this otherwise excellent and tough machine but whether it would be a leather or a canvas sling depends upon individual tastes and preferences of buyers. Though not quite essential, another M1A accessory is the user manual issued by the Army. Such a manual sure has some glamour quotient but actual usability is sure a matter of debate.
A M1A accessory that no user should overlook is the manual cleaning kit that should always be used to keep the gun sleek and shining. Also, another essential M1A accessory is the disassembly wrench that has to be frequently used to disassemble and clean the gun if the owner wants it to function without any trouble.
Other M1A accessories include flash suppressors that have been engineered in accordance with Canadian law and adjustable iron sight that are often necessary for game hunting. Any rifle that is as accurate as M1A at long distances should boast riflescopes and there are several such mount scopes available to choose from according to requirement and taste.
For those that really love their M1A, another M1A accessory is cheek piece leather that adds that much comfort while shooting while adding extra flamboyance to the stock. These gun lovers would most certainly buy plastic muzzle protector to ensure their gun is always safe and protected from any external damage.
M1A along with accessories make a formidable sight and instill enough confidence in the owner as he feels secured against any form of external threat, be it from animals or criminal elements. This gun can not only be used most effectively to stave of preying animals while on a rural safari but also can be used to prevent criminals from escaping by placing a few shots at crucial areas of their vehicles so as to immobilize those permanently. But guns are very dangerous and should be handled with extreme responsibility.
