Looking Back on the M1A Rifle
Long before Springfield Armory manufactured the M1A, the rifle had already made a name for itself in Vietnam. At the time, the American military needed a weapon that could rival the popular AK-47, and although some soldiers felt that the barrel size of the M14 was too long and taxing, others praised the weapon for its accuracy and reliability. Designed by Elmer C. Balance, who founded Springfield Armory in 1974, the M1A looked like the M14 that came before it, but it had subtle differences. For one, M1A receivers were made with cast alloy steel that was much cheaper and less complicated than the drop forge process used for M14s.
