I had an M1A in the Socom 16 variety. Was well made and shot decent, but not super accurate. I ended up getting rid of it because it didn’t do much for me. I liked how the action operates. When it would cycling it had a very metallic feeling to it. Mine was fixed magazine and was a breeze to load via M14 stripper clips. For me the 308 semi auto landed into a weird spot. Not cheap enough to be able to justify going to the range and just blasting 200 or 300 rounds, but not a big enough caliber to have a big enough boom. Commercial ammo was into the 16-20 bucks a box for 20 rounds price. Every time I would shoot it I would think to myself, for just going out and blasting away I could do it for half the cost with an sks or ar15.
