With this said, which of the M1A models would you buy before the market makes prices prohibitive? Standard, Loaded, Scout Squad, SOCOM, National Match or Super Match?
None, for me, thanks, already have one. Standard, rack grade rifle, all GI parts other than the receiver. Got mine back when the going rate was $500, same rifle (minus the full auto parts) I trained on in the Army.

Shoots at least as well as I do, no point for me having a match grade gun for an inflated $.

Since I don't do houseclearing or in and out of apc's (and haven't in decades) I have no use for a short barrel M1A. I want, and can use the full velocity from the full length barrel, and don't need to reduce it for ease of carry. I have other rifles for that.

If you don't have one, get one, even at today's prices there's no better RIFLE with the same feel of history. Don't make it into a carbine that's what ARs are for.
