Rob Leatham Springfield Armory M1A Rifle

When it comes to firearms, when Rob Leatham speaks, you listen.

Leatham is a 24-time USPSA National champion shooter with several guns bearing his name.

Recently, Leatham wrote a blog post for Springfield Armory as to why the company’s M1A rifles are so superior in the market and which one is right for you.

Few .308 caliber rifles can perform as well an M1A rifle and non are as versatile. Whether it’s a high power rifle competition or close quarters combat (CQB), there’s one that serves any purpose. Couple that with a classic design and quality materials and you’ve got a winner.

The M1A rifles have three barrel lengths of 16 inches, 18 inches and 22 inches, each one with its own benefit, according to Leatham.
