I have the opportunity to purchase (at a great price) a loaded M1A with synthetic stock, stainless match barrel, and cluster rail. Here it is http://springfield-armory.com/armory.php?version=40. I already have an M1A loaded. Would you purchase the 2nd gun and have two, or add a Sadlak and upgrade the one I already have. BTW, it is the walnut stock version." First, thanks for the kind words. IF I were in your predicament, I'd look at the $$$ for this rifle (that's very close to what you've got), or, look at a "Scout/Squad". This shorter version of the M1A used to be called a "Bush" rifle.
