Who makes the stainless steel barrel found on Springfield's Loaded M1A? Do they make them in-house, or does another maker provide them? No reason other than just being curious.

The one I bought in the 90's came with a Hart Barrell I believe.

I think douglas does. But just to be sure, why not call them and ask?

My guess would be Wilson since they also provide the carbon steel blanks that SAI turns down in house to their profile of choice.

My guess would be Brazil since everything on the M1A seems to come from there anyways.

FWIW: I have no clue and don't know what I am talking about so don't get your panties all in a bunch if they are not made in Bra-zil

Both of mine (late 90's manufacture) were Wilsons.

Cool. I've heard Wilson thrown about in relation to the topic before.

EricCartmanR1: Don't tell me if I can or can not get my panties in a bunch. :mad: 'Sides, Brazil's got some mighty fine chicas. :D

Penne at SA e-mailed me back stating that they turn the barrels in-house, but the manufacture of the blank was proprietary.

Brazierials, panties all wadded up...hmmmm. I knew the M1A was the sexiest rifle ever. The FAL is kind of like the dirty girl who smoked cigarettes behind the school. But the M1A still ownes my heart. Sorry ladies.
