M1A™ SOCOM 16 Rifles

The M1A™ SOCOM 16 takes the classic M1A to a whole new level.

A handy, tactical rifle, the M1A™ SOCOM 16 has a specially-engineered 16.25″ barrel that’s mated to the gas system with a proprietary muzzle brake to reduce felt recoil in a big way. It also features the Springfield Armory® forward scout-style picatinny mount, an enlarged ghost ring aperture rear sight, and XS Sights® tritium insert in the front sight to give you lightning fast target acquisition capability.

7.62 NATO power in a package this small was previously unthinkable, but this ultra-modern rifle will have you believing the extraordinary.

A solid “truck gun”, this compact rifle won’t allow you to sacrifice power, so do the only reasonable thing — Bring Enough Gun™.

Proving that sometimes less really is more, the M1A™ SOCOM 16 in .308 Win. takes the M1A™ platform and shrinks it down to a remarkably compact and portable size. Sporting a short 16.25″ barrel and shortened gas system, the SOCOM 16 features a forward mounted “scout” mount rail for an optic.

    The 16.25" barrel of the M1A™ SOCOM 16 features a 1:11" six-groove right-hand twist to maximize accuracy while minimizing bulk and weight.

  • Forward Scout-Style Picatinny Rail

    The forward scout-style scope rail optimizes the unparalleled close quarters capabilities of the M1A™ SOCOM 16. (Not available on M1A Tanker)

  • 2-Stage NM Tuned Trigger

    The match-grade tuned two-stage trigger breaks like glass at between 5 and 6 lbs.

  • XS® Tritium Front Sight

    The radioactive Tritium front sight from XS Sights® keeps the M1A™ SOCOM 16 on target even in dim light.

  • Windage / Elevation Adj. Rear Sight

    The combat-proven rear sight on the M1A™ SOCOM 16 easily adjusts for both windage and elevation with nothing more than a standard set of human fingers.

  • Proprietary Muzzle Brake

    The muzzle brake on the M1A™ SOCOM 16 offers exceptional performance with a minimal footprint.


The M1A™ SOCOM 16 CQB in .308 Win. features amazing power in a close quarters-sized package.
