The M1A makes for a very very good sniper and deer hunting rifle that shoots the Palma bullet and Varget in some tiny groups. The National Match rifle is even better than the standard rifle. The M-1A rifle is the logical rebuilding of the M1 Garand into the best service rifle in use any-where.
Any of the M1A variants are 'sniper-rifles'with some a little better than others . I have a rifle obtained from sargent Hicks that is a nationaal match rifle built for him while he was shooting on the U S Army marksmanship unit . The sargent worked with me at the Post office for years and sold me the rifle cause I shot some targets at the time and he was dieing from agent orange cancer then.
