Before Springfield Armory introduced the M1A SOCOM 16 in 2004, 7.62 NATO power in a package this small was previously unthinkable. Shooters who need a compact rifle no longer have to settle for a lesser caliber, although they can expect less felt recoil and less muzzle rise, thanks to the SOCOM 16's unique design. The SOCOM 16 starts with a specially-engineered 16" Parkerized carbon steel barrel that is mated to the gas system with a proprietary muzzle brake. The muzzle brake reduces felt recoil and keeps muzzle rise so flat that follow-up shots have never been so easy. The enlarged ghost ring aperture rear sight and XS Tritium Insert in the front sight give you the quick target acquisition capability you want and need under any conditions. If your mission calls for optics, the SOCOM 16 features Springfield Armory's forward scout-style Picatinny mount. Of course, the SOCOM 16 also has the legendary performance and reliability that M1A shooters have come to love and expect. If your mission requirements call for a compact tactical rifle, but won't let you sacrifice power, you need the SOCOM 16.

I am very pleased with my Socom 16, although my rifle arrived at my FFL with the cardboard box in a damaged condition. The outer and inner shipping boxes had evidence of 'crush marks' in several areas.but fortunately my firearm was not damaged in transit. I had inspected it carefully before I accepted it from my FFL. The shipper in this case was UPS.
As usual I enjoy doing business with Hinterland Outfitters as I have purchased numerous firearms from you and the customer service has been excellent.

Great service and excellent product. Received email notice that rifle was available on Monday. Went on line and ordered immediately. Order was placed on Monday and received on Thursday. Price is expensive but cheaper than other online sites, and most importantly Hinterland was able to fill order. Have not been to range yet but I'm sure rifle will perform as expected. Fit and finish are excellent. Only complaint is it comes with 10 round magazine instead of 20 round. Guess those of us still living in a free state have to suffer for those who have surrendered their freedoms. I have no problem recommending Hinterland to a friend and will be ordering again in future. Thanks again for great service.
