The Springfield Armory M1A has a storied history in the firearms world, and has become one of the most well known and well respected rifles on the market today. Praised for it's accuracy and rugged reliability, the M1A is the civilian version of the battlefield legend, the M14. The M14 was adopted by the U.S. Military in 1959 and remains in limited service to this day! Shooters rejoiced when Springfield Armory began producing the civilian version, the M1A, in 1974. The rifle quickly gained a following thanks to competition success at the National Matches at Camp Perry.
Under the Springfield Armory license, Air Venturi introduces the M1A underlever. Keeping accuracy in mind, the M1A is a faithful fixed barreled replica of the legendary firearm. A beautiful wood stock provides the heft and solid feel that real steel M1A owners will love. Weighing in at a hefty 9.9 lbs, the M1A Underlever is almost identical in weight to the National Match version of the firearm.
A true to form, windage and elevation adjustable rear sight peep sits at the back of the action, and lines up perfectly with the fixed front blade to help you place your shots on target. For those interested in scoping this rifle, there are threaded holes on the left hand side of the action that will accept a traditional M1A/M14 mount.
A 35 lbs cocking effort is made easier with the use of an extendable cocking lever, that can be quickly deployed before cocking to gain leverage. Thankfully, this extension doesn't dampen the authentic look of the rifle, as it is hidden within the existing cocking lever. We know you're wondering where you load your pellets, and that is another hidden feature of the M1A. During the cocking cycle, the upper hand guard actually slides forward, exposing a generous loading area and the end of the barrel to load you pellet into.
Those familiar with the M1A firearm will notice another unique and handy feature of the M1A underlever. The location of the release for the anti-bear trap safety mechanism is the bolt catch/release on the left hand side of the action! When you're loaded and ready to close the cocking lever, depress this tab and you'll be able to return the cocking lever home and take aim.
Whether you're a fan of the Springfield Armory M1A or just love realistic replica airguns, the M1A underlever blends realism and utility into an airgun deserving of the legendary Springfield Armory name!
