Scout Squad™

M1A™ Scout Squad™ Rifles

The M1A™ Scout Squad™ combines the legendary power and reliability of the M1A™ with the quick handling and fast sight acquisition of a scout-style rifle. This means your rugged outdoors life just got a whole lot better.

From the two-stage military trigger to the aperture-style rear sight (adjustable for windage and elevation), the Scout Squad™ takes the M1A™ design and adds a forward mount scope for the added versatility of extended eye relief optics. Its barrel is shortened to 18″, so its short, handy dimensions will never get in the way of your big plans.

Designed for quick snap shots at a target, the Scout Squad™ is packed with all the standard features that make the M1A™ great, plus new features like a specially designed muzzle brake to help tame recoil. The M1A™ Scout Squad™ gives you the maneuverability of a scout rifle with the same power and features of a legendary American rifle. You’re welcome.
