McMillan has introduced the M3A rifle, a medium range .308 Win. semi-automatic built upon the Springfield M1A action (The M1A is based on the M14).
At first glance it looks a lot like the Springfield M1A SOCOM II. Unlike the SOCOM, which is optimized for close range work, the M3A is designed for medium range action and for scope use. Coming out of the McMillan shop, I would expect it has very good accuracy.
The rifle comes in two flavors. The compact model is not all that dissimilar to the SOCOM II. Instead of the McMillan M3A stock it has the SOCOM adjustable stock. The standard model has the M3A stock (pictured above).
