Springfield Armory is prominently known for being the “battle firearm” company that most notably produces 1911s, AR-15s, and M1As. Now, they are expanding their offerings of M1A rifles by crafting a standard and Scout Squad M1A model in an NBS-Exclusive Two-Tone Desert M1A finish reminiscent of Flat Dark Earth (FDE).
