Popular for decades, the NRA-Springfield M1A Match breathes new life into a legendary rifle before the High Power Rifle Championships

Port Clinton, Ohio - Before the rise of the AR-15 as the competition rifle of choice in the shooting sports, the Springfield M1A enjoyed a number of years in the spotlight. Still an effective firearm, many still enjoy shooting the M1A whether they have owned one for decades or recently began appreciating the classic rifle. Because of its sustained popularity, the NRA teamed up with Springfield Armory a few years ago to create the NRA-Springfield M1A Match, celebrating its use.

The match is the most prize-rich High Power event the NRA holds, with more than $25,000 in cash and prizes awarded across all skill levels. If you shoot the match, there's a very good chance you'll walk away with some cash.
