Competitive shooting went out the door a couple of decades ago due to the expenses and time involved. Enough that in the last 2 years I've filled several quart jars with expended primers. How do I dispose of these things?? My main M1A is now the last acquired. I watched it on a pawnshop rack for months, making a rejected but not unreasonable offer from time to time. The rifle on the rack was a super match built in which had only the lightest of wear of the blueing on the bolt and so was a safe queen.
The catch was that the barrel was so dirty that I couldn't tell anything about it with my borelight and the shop wouldn't clean it or let me clean it. Also, the previous owner had lacquered the stock and smeared the lacquer on the metal here and there.
Anyway I continued making lower and lower offers until one day they sold it to me. Yeah, the barrel a chrome-moly was pitted badly, but the rifling was sharp so I began shooting it.
It shot well like a super match should, but it was tough to clean. In 2 months and 1 week I got the rifle back. What a super job.
New fitted receiver, new bedding, new op rod guide, new Kreiger heavy SS match barrel and all for the price of the barrel replacement.
I advised him to send it in and let SA fix the safety issue which he did. When he got the back, I had to check the serial because SA had tightened and fitted everything including the slide and rails. I can only speculate that SA sent the thru their custom shop as only a really experienced pistolsmith with all the tools and jigs could fit and tighten a like that.
Thanks from Masterblaster1 and XM25Ren. This is the last time I will speak about this, since I am beating a dead horse. I find their service so far to be less than adequate. Especially if the customer is willing to install it. However I had to fix the problem myself on my dime. I checked mine, XX. Sent out by SAI on Friday with a new bolt and guts. SAI F marked bolt. Couldn't a happier, and pleasantly surprised with the turn around time.

Ships to FFL in states where legal. This is a very clean weapon and I have not shot it.
