New Springfield Armory M1A Rifle now Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor

Springfield Armory’s M1A Series has a hard-won reputation for handling any mission, any condition, any foe, at any range – and for taking home trophies from monster bucks to National Match crowns. Highly precise .308 WIN-chambered M1A models are found in the hands of elite tactical teams, snipers, backcountry hunters and competitive marksmen.

Now skilled shooters can get legendary Springfield M1A durability in 6.5 Creedmoor caliber.

With high muzzle velocity, low recoil, and extreme long-range accuracy, the Creedmoor round is becoming increasingly popular and easily accessible. The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor makes the most of the ammo’s attributes with the rifle design, craftsmanship, balance and response known to Springfield Armory’s storied M1A platform.

The M1A’s National Match Grade, 22-inch medium weight stainless steel barrel provides a long sight radius for outstanding iron sight accuracy, with a 4-groove 1:8 right-hand twist and shot-steadying muzzle brake to put rounds right where intended. The NM Grade .062 post front sight is paired with a NM Grade non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight that’s ideal for distant targets and adjustable for ½ MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation. The 2-stage trigger is National Match tuned to 4.5 – 5 pounds, for a crisp, confident pull. The new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A is a “true 1000-yard rifle” that delivers a level of shooting performance few rifles can match, especially when paired with an SA scope mount and your optic of choice.

The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is offered with your choice of a solid black composite stock, or a precision-adjustable stock that lets shooters dial in individual fit and feel. A 10-round magazine smoothly feeds rounds into the chamber for reliable shooting.

“Having a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber in the M1A lineup gives long-range shooters more choices with the precision and accuracy they require,” says Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese. “They can choose the round they prefer, and take advantage of the legendary accuracy of the M1A platform to make the most of their shooting prowess.”

With a length of 45 to 46.24 inches and unloaded weight of 11.4 pounds, the new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is a well-balanced, extremely accurate and precise tool for marksmen eager to raise their long-distance performance.
