M1A Scout TwoTone Desert FDE 308
Springfield Armory keeps banging the drum of their oldest product because, like Ruger and the Mini-14, it just kind of never goes out of style. The newest versions of the Springfield M1A 7.62 semi-auto battle rifle include a Standard Issue (22-inch barrel, $1,847 MSRP) and a Scout Squad (18-inch barrel, $1,980 MSRP), both with a Cerakote two-tone deserty flat dark earth finish over all external parts except the magazine.
 
Springfield is billing these new M1As as being “developed specifically for sale by Nation’s Best Sports” but as NBS is a buying club that has like 1,200 retail partners around the country, odds are these will be pretty easy to find if you want them.
 
Of course, you could always just buy the basic model M1A for about $1,700 and rattle can it to whatever color/pattern you want, but where is the fun in that?
