Almost any gun nut could give you a fairly detailed history in the M1 Garand; they could tell you the specifications, what made the weapon so great and what it’s downsides were, but as we all know things only get better with age. You’re about to meet the M1A SOCOM 16, a rifle that has managed to change the way people view assault rifles since 2004. This was the first rifle of this size to fire 7.62NATO rounds, beforehand that was something that was nearly unthinkable. Larger rounds mean more power packed behind each and every bullet, but that doesn’t mean it sacrifices it’s predecessor’s accuracy in the slightest.
The unique design of this weapon helps with the recoil so the shooter feels less, and is also less affected by muzzle rise. In fact, any follow-up shot with this will feel so smooth you probably won’t believe the caliber you’re firing. In short, this is one hell of a rifle! Take a look for yourself, this incredible weapon has combined the knowledge of the new with the reliability of the old:
If you’ve ever wanted to shoot a rifle there would be no better place to start than the SOCOM 16!
