Grandson of the M1 Garand, the M1A SOCOM 16 is the ultimate battle rifle

Shorter than the standard M1A, the 16″ M1A SOCOM 16 has been called the “ultimate battle rifle” and it’s hard to argue against their claim.

Chambered in .308 win, this scout style rifle is a reliable heavy hitter.

It takes all of the best elements of the classic military work horse and compresses them into a smaller package that works as well over long distances as it does in close quarters.

Take a look at the rifle in action below.
