Springfiled Armory M1A sniper avaialble?

I was giving some thought to building a Garand M1D sniper rifle. Adding it all up, proper mount and replica scope. I decided no. I did a quick read up in Wiki and saw an M14, wood stock with a scope used as a recent military issue sniper. That would be an easy rifle for Springfield Armory to offer. The M1a loaded with a scope base. I looked at the website and all I can see are options for a scout style mount. I do not want that.

Can anyone tell me, has Springfield offered a sniper m1a or is that an easy modification to drill and tap for an off the shelf base.

Let me try and link to a wiki photo:

I zoomed in on the photo. Is that a special receiver with a dove tail for the base?
