POTD: Springfield M1A, 50 Round Drum!

What is better than a M1A with a 20 round magazine? A M1A with a 50 round drum, of course. Paul writes …

This is my beloved Springfield M1A. It wears a Vortex viper PST 1-4x which sits on a vltor casv rail all tied into a Boyd’s walnut stock. James from X products was at the range the same day and hooked me up with an X products x14 skeletonized 50 round drum FOR FREE after shooting the rifle. His generosity left me speechless.

I feel inspired to get myself both a M1A and a X Products drum.

    Beautiful rifle, man. Makes me want to take off the synthetic stock and go old school.

    If this sudden girth I'm experiencing lasts for more than four hours, I suppose I need to consult a physician.
