M1A Springfield - Survical Rifle

7735202?1330727837
My choice for the best all-around hunting and survival rifle is the Springfield M1a with walnut stock. This rifle fires the 7.72 NATO cartridge and comes with a twenty-round magazine. With the magazine removed and the walnut stock it can be carried in the woods looking very much like an ordinary rifle.  I dare you to carry an M-16 (even though legal) without someone calling the authorities. The accurized versions of the M1a can nail tacks at 700 meters with 168 grain match ammunition. This is the civilian version of the military M-14. There are two manufacturers, Fulton Armory and Springfield Arms. The Chinese imports are dangerous unless reworked by a gunsmith.

The most important reason for selecting an M1a is not it's accuracy or range. It is the ability of this rifle to throw a life-line three hundred meters with a built-in grenade launcher. There is no other game in town.

The m1a is the only system currently available that can deliver a life-line to a person trapped on top of a car in a raging river.

The launcher is activated by using a coin to turn a valve ninety degrees diverting all gas to the muzzle. A dummy grenade (available on the internet or at gun shows) is slipped over the launcher on the muzzle and attached to a light line. A special grenade launching cartridge (available at gunshows) is inserted into the chamber. An ordinary blank will do in an emergency.  It is important to attach the line to the grenade with rubber bands or with cord that will break if the grenade continues beyond the length of the line, so as not to sever the line. The dummy grenades have a compartment big enough to put inside a modern cell phone or two-way radio. Making sure trhe line does not become entangles while feeding out is a problem. One way is to set out the line in parallel rows ten foot long in front of the rifle. Another is to wrap the line circumferentially around a large tapered plastic bucket.
