M1A barrelled action

I am looking for an M1A barrelled action. I know Fulton Armory has them but was wondering if anyone here knows the whereabouts of one?
Thanks

M1A is only manufactured by Springfield inc. not Fultons.
If you are looking for the best M14 type barreled action available, take a look at LRB of Long Island.

This is great. I thought full auto versions were out of production.

Not full auto, just they get to use M14 as the model name. Dunno if it's just because they're not also using the Springfield moniker as a company name or if the BATFE cut back on their coffee and relaxed a teche.

Sorry for the confusion. I use the term M14 " type " to describe all semi auto commercial receivers. I have used most of them over the years messing with this weapon platform 46+ and find that my prefference is for the LRB. Not only are they hammer forged like the originals and not cast repros, but they claim to be within .001 of spec. All of mine have gone together nicely with USGI parts and function 100%.

Art, what's the barrel length and muzzle device on the rifle on the far left? I love the way it looks.

This is another with a SEI direct connect and GLFS. Leupold VX-R Patrol 1.25 - 4 scope. This is my steel shooting tool. Cheek riser removed for photo.

Steel hooks in the upper sling swivel. They were done that way for a photo for my friend Hawk. He wanted to use a photo of my rifles on his website. I am proud of my herd , which has expanded quite a bit since that was taken.

Having a M14/M1A section here, I cannot imagine a better overseer than yourself in distributing the M14 technical information which you provide.

7 are on LRB receivers. 4 M25 and 3 M14SA. The herd has grown considerably since that photo was taken. I am just proud of the way it came out.

Those are TNVC. I like them because they are stable and easily removed for use of iron sights. There is a nice flap with a data sheet. And they don't screw up a nice piece of wood.
