I have a Bushmaster Moe Mid Length (very low serial number). Quality of the lower is perfect and I had some issues with the upper that were resolved. It does have a tight chamber and is accurate. It is not an M1A. 16" is a bit short for .308 but I like it. 18" would be ideal and I may go that direction. 30mm 1x4 Primary Arms Scope/mount is a great addition for close accurate work. It's a lot bigger/heavier than an AR-15 and recoil is more. 20rds in a Pmag is some real weight.
