New M1A Stock Options

M1A Highlander

For 2015, Springfield Armory is offering a number of new stock color options for both the standard M1A rifle and several of the variant guns.

For the standard M1A rifle, the two new options are the flat dark earth composite stock and the very popular Kryptek Highlander camo composite stock.

M1A MultiCam

The SOCOM 16 rifle will be available with composite stocks finished in flat dark earth and in MultiCam camo. Springfield Armory will also offer the M1A Scout Squad rifle with a flat dark earth composite stock.


All of these rifles are labeled as “coming soon.” No specific shipping date is immediately available.

    The FDE M1A, FDE Scout, and FDE SOCOM 16 are already shipping. Dealers have started to receive those.

      Nice. A FDE SOCOM 16 might be really nice in California, because El Desierto. And it’s legal and stuff without doodads.

    Any word if the stocks will be available themselves or only as complete rifles?

    Let’s hope that the color calibration is off & the rifle in the last pic really is FDE & not Play-Doh…

      Really tired of seeing sandbox colors and no classic od-green :

      • Anonymoose

        They have an OD green stock already.

    I’d be interested if the M1A wasn’t so damn expensive…

  • Paul O.

    Wow, there’re are some curmudgeons on this thread….

  • Anonymoose

    They had a stainless Operator on the site for a short time, then took it off…I would like to see those, as well as the stainless full-length rail TRP Operators back…

    I want a WHITE one. Or at least Winter camo.

    As a canadian, i need it.

    Grabbing a Scout Squad this year– probably gonna go with the FDE option (though would have opted for multicam if offered outside of the socom)
